Not a good place to work - depending on territory.
Pros: hard but fulfilling field work.
Cons: starting pay, lack of effective management.
Under good management where employees are held accountable for their actions, this can be a great place to work. Unfortunately, I didn't have that type of experience. My manager was overwhelmed due to the fact that he was doing what used to be 3 different positions. The Houston territory used to be 2 different service centers(5-6 technicians each) with a combined 3 different managers. Now, there is 1 manager with 10-15 technicians. Half of the technicians picked up on the weakness this created and exploited it for personal gain. One quarter merely did their job. The last quarter took the initiative and picked up the slack of the rest to keep everything from falling apart. If you work for the pay you want, it is possible to get there as long as there is a good relationship between the tech, SOM and AVP. Assuming, of course, that you can put up with the environment. Unstable upper management and company direction.
