Good office staff
Former Employee (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCApril 13, 2015
Pros: Gas cards, Travel and phone
Cons: Lack of good upper - supportative management
In management 12-18 hrs days
on call 7 days a week. No quality of life . Good people to work with on a co-worker level. Upper management above are just numbers driven and favoritism is the best way to advance. This company isnt very home base friendly. Quality of life definitely takes a back seat. At the RDO/SM /PSM level they are the ones we turn to , to get guidance, however if you arent in the circle then you will not be given any help.

Home Security Installer, Don't expect to get paid what your worth!!!
Residential Security Tech (Former Employee), Dallas, TxApril 3, 2015
Pros: good co workers.
Cons: low pay for industry!!!!
The job itself is fairly simple if you have some voice & data experience or home security experience. They just don't know what they are doing in regards to management and figuring out how to actually get everybody on the same page. Management are clueless.They don't even know the how to manage the contract they have with AT&T for this job. It will soon be taken away from them and AT&T will take over and then comes the union, and then you are more screwed because the AT&T union is a joke and AT&T is a nightmare to work for.

OK

It's an Ok place to work but not a place to advance your career. The CEO does not care about you. Flexible schedule but a lot of travelling.

Tech (Current Employee), DIGITAL LIFEMarch 26, 2015
Pros: Great people to work with
Cons: Business model fail
This job is great if you are single and have no life. You work over 65 hours a week. The pay is pretty good but if you are married and have kids they might forget who you are. Upper management don't care and just want the job done

Get it done. No matter what.
Field Service Technician (Former Employee), Bethlehem, GAMarch 19, 2015
Pros: Impossible to get fired if you're work is complete.
Cons: Low pay. Bad morale.
Pay is markedly lower than industry standard. This reflects on the morale of the workforce including management. There is very little care about what needs to be done, who, or how, it's going to get done. It just needs to be done.

Green Roads system in the vehicles makes you a rolling roadblock unable to maintain pace with traffic, and at the slightest bump you're getting calls from your supervisor, while driving.

Not good

The company was extremely disorganized, the employees regularly stole equipment from each other, and supervisors looked the other way when policy was violated.

Not for everyone.
Satellite Installation Technician (Former Employee), San Antonio, Tx.February 25, 2015
Pros: good in class training.
Cons: too many to list.
I had previously done satellite installing in my life and was completely taken back at how much it had changed. A typical day for me was to arrive at the warehouse to retrieve van, which I did not take home due to a 40 dollar a week charge if you do take it home. From there I would check my first job and figure out what equipment I would need. If I didn't have a piece of equipment then I would have to call other techs and see if they had it and make arrangements to pick that item up. Keep in mind that I was already at the warehouse which has an endless amount of equipment but will not give it to you when needed. So on to the customers house. Setting up the dish, running all new cables(per policy),installing receivers and then customer education. Technicians are graded on about ten different metrics. One is connecting receivers to internet or phone line. Well a lot of people don't have either and that is a hit on your stats. Customer also gets a survey after you leave and if for any reason any question is not a "10", then it's a fail and counts against you. Very high stress and unpleasant working life. You have to provide your own drills,shovels and other specialty tools that will make your life easier. They only provide some small cheap hand tools, the aim meter and cell phone. Oh you are also tracked and graded on your driving. Can't go too fast,take a hard turn or hit the brakes even moderately hard cause you will get a call or email. Oh and if your receivers age over 14 days and you don't return them immediately, you will get charged out of your check. Some receivers are – more... over 300 dollars...
I knew there was a reason I got out the business in the first place but it has really gone down hill. You will be out all hours of the night trying to finish jobs and no one will offer help and if you ask they will say no can do. Just prepare to have no life, high stress and sometimes dangerous installations. The pay is ridiculously low for this type of work. You have a million and one things to do before you can actually close out a job and move on to the next. Great physical and mental demand. Apply at your own risk. – less

The company itself was a great company. The training was great and the trainer was cool. The only bad part of the company was some of the supervisors didn't know what they were talking about sometimes.

Worst job ever!!!
Accounts payable and payroll. (Former Employee), Miami FloridaFebruary 16, 2015
Pros: hours were flexible.
Cons: poor management. no advancement. poor benefits.
I liked it at first because I started as a temp..after eight months I was made permanent.I was praised for a job well done if you didn't speak Spanish you were left out of the loop and most of the time ignored.Management had no idea what they were doing and when they started losing money they blamed everyone else for their poor management.I never understood the high turnover I figured I would work hard and have some sort of job security.One Friday, I was told my position was moved to another office. The office manager was a joke.on her cellphone all day long picking up men on a dating site and telling everyone about it. Glad I don't work there anymore!

Project Controls Manager (Former Employee), Port Allen, LAFebruary 2, 2015
Pros: travel, free lunches, able to work from home

Unstable environment
Security Technician Supervisor (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: decent pay
Cons: long work days, no full weekends off, enormous accountability
Work days are 12 to 14 hours.

On the road by 07:00 and end of day depended on your work load. A Two installation work load can be from 08:00am to 09:00pm depending on devices being installed. Other work days the end of the day ( 1 installation and some repairs) could be 05:00pm to 07:00pm. Off days was one day during the work week (M-F) and Sunday.

Management was average, but the priority of the workday was on job completion and not technician well-being. This is a new system that has issues. The hardest part is resolving complicated issues with little support while trying to comfort the customer on why you have been their house for 7 hours and still not completed.
