Good place to work
Site Acquisition Specialist (Current Employee) –  Lake Oswego, ORJune 13, 2017
Good job security on AT&T project due to steady work, however the company recently decided to stop giving merit raises and no longer match the 401k. This is for an indefinite period of time and came out of nowhere.
Pros
Good management in market, steady work
Cons
Corporate cuts to benefits and salary

A decent place to work
National Quality Manager (Current Employee) –  Bloomington, MNMay 4, 2017
The pay is mediocre compared to competitors however, they do make up for it with a decent benefits package and Job/Work life balance. The people are all friendly and easy to get along with.

Site Acquisition Specialist (Former Employee) –  Glen Allen, VAMarch 22, 2017
Although people are friendly, the mananagement team is sneaky. They tell you what they think you want to hear. If you are not their friends, no matter how well of a job you do, you will not be recognized. They keep the slackers and people you have to hold their hands, and get rid of the associates that work, and do not require mundaine assistance.

They hire according to friendshops and the leadership team does not know what they are doing, they have made comments to their clients over the phone.
Pros
Friendly, helpful
Cons
Management needs help!

Trash, Do not fall for it
Inventory Control Specialist (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORFebruary 2, 2017
They tell you they got benefits and advancement opportunity. But don't get tricked! They will use you and cut you off if you don't accept an inevitable pay cut.

Long Hours, poor management
Field Engineer II/Crew Lead (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCAugust 25, 2016
A lot of the job was enjoyable but as a salaried employee you were often expected to work 50+ hours a week with no overtime compensation. When issues arose in the field, management had little or no help to give.
Pros
Decent pay, good coworkers
Cons
60 hour weeks when in the field

Absolutely incredible place to work before the company was bought out by a larger company.
Field Engineer (Former Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LAAugust 22, 2016
If you join this company just make sure you are flexible and able to go with the flow. Your experience there will be what you make it there. If you go into it with a open mind enjoy the people you meet and work with and the experiences you have with each other while making good money it will be great.
Pros
People you meet there and the traveling.
Cons
Being laid off.

Nice place to work. Diverse group of people who seem to like working here being that the turnover rate isn't disproportionately high.

Lots of opportunity
Heavy Civil Project Manager II (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCFebruary 29, 2016
There is a ton of opportunity to grow in this company if you are willing to work hard and start from the bottom. Work-life balance needs a good amount of work, but it is more the telecom industry's fault than FDHVs. Work can be monotonous at times. People are great.

Fun place to work
Tower Climber (Current Employee) –  OhioFebruary 10, 2016
Exciting place to work with exception that you are traveling away from home at least three weeks a month. Lots of hours and not much time off. Overall, the job is exciting and fun being 200 plus feet in the air on a tower.

Project Leasing Management (Current Employee) –  Lake Oswego, ORFebruary 1, 2016
Very fast paced and yet exciting. I love working with the people here at FDH. Unfortunately the compensation is not there but there are very knowledgable indivduals that steer you in the right direction if you're not afraid to ask. Self motivater and self start is a must.

let down
Assistant (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCJanuary 23, 2016
The company is poorly managed and seems like no one knows what they are supposed to be doing. CEO wants to acquire more companies for growth. Some people are really friendly, but the environment is not conducive to grow professionally.
Pros
First Thursday Reboot
Cons

The growth potential is poor. You are promised advancements in your career in the beginning, but this fails to happen. You have a new manager every 6 months that asks you the same questions as the previous manager did.
Pros
Great colleagues, Good benefits, First Thursday Reboots
Cons
No advancement potential

FDH Velocitel
Site Acquisition Lead (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNNovember 11, 2015
One of the worst managed companies I have worked for in the telecommunications industry. The terms accountability and good work environment are preached at this company but is not executed starting with the CEO down.

It is hard to work for a company were the CEO is looking to acquire more companies, cut the experienced team members and is just looking to sell the company. As well as it is hard to work for a CEO that has no experience in the telecommunications industry.
Cons
No management level support, no upper level management experience
