Electrician-lead (Former Employee), Houston, TX – April 29, 2014
Pros: hours, 401k and medical insurance
Cons: upper management
Up to the end, the work day was long hours and enjoyed working with all co-workers. The hardest part of the job was trying to explain to upper management that the electrical pad couldn't make the deadlines unless purchasing ordered all the material that was needed once the job was awarded to the company. When the material finally arrived (about a week – more... or two before the buildings were due for inspection) when the bid stated a certain amount of hours to complete and make deadlines when the customers required their product. The most enjoyable part of the job was the hours even though we were on a very short time frame. – less

Sr Structural Designer (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TN – October 15, 2013
Pros: benefits are above average
Cons: consider their employees slaves
The overall scheme around Lectrus is to make you forget that you have a family, the common motto is "you dont fire a slave". There idea of hiring a manager is pick their buddy or someone they like no matter how little experience they may have. The Engineering manager was picked to manage a dept in turmoil, he was over somewhere around twenty people – more... and had never had a direct report before that time.
They pay well and have decent benefits but run away from this place as fast as you can....... – less

Very much enjoy working here. Benefits and people are great! I believe that any company has to have a system to be fair to all employees and this company does. I feel management in all areas are fair; as well as the "point" system. Also, this company offers classes and training to better yourself in the field you are in, as well as learning additional – more... information.
I love it & look forward to continuing my career at Lectrus! – less

Strict, family & health issues are unimportant no matter what you do for the company, even if you make up the hours. They are on a point system, one SECOND late and you get a point (and there is NO parking for Engineering), call in sick...two points even WITH a Dr. note...you must PLAN yours or your childs illness and give notice of it to not receive – more... them! Sixteen points and you are terminated with no chance for any type of "make-up points". Everyone is treated like a child, not like a professional. Most of the amazing people I worked with for years have quit or been terminated for points. They are also the lowest paying Company for Engineering in Houston! – less
