Great Work Environment; Not Much Room to Grow
IT Specialist (Current Employee) – Van Nuys, CA – March 30, 2015
Electro Rent is a large company on paper; however, you do not feel that when you come in to work. Although the company employs many people, employees feel as though they are part of a close family. Colleagues and management do their best to make the workplace a very pleasant, respectful, and productive environment.
My coworkers have definitely made my job at Electro Rent enjoyable. The IT department is home to many creative and unique individuals. As an IT Specialist, I had the opportunity to work with many Electro Rent employees throughout the world at various levels. It is safe to say that the great majority of them were respectful and driven. In the event that individuals were not pleasant, HR would address them properly and in a timely manner. Which leads to another reason why Electro Rent has been a good place to work - HR. The HR group worked to keep us informed and comfortable; great communication.
A very enjoyable part of my job is the level of job security. On the other hand, there is not much room left to grow. I feel as though I have hit a glass ceiling at Electro Rent. After three years, the time has definitely come to respectfully take my dedication, initiative, and drive to another company with more possibilities and career advancements.
The department I work in is staffed minimally. With that said, there is not much time to implement new ideas or technologies. For the past few months, the department has been bogged down with fulfilling short-term/day-to-day tasks rather than large scale improvement projects.
pleasant environment, job security
understaffed, no room to grow
