Wireless Field Engineer II (Former Employee) –  NationwideDecember 28, 2016
Coordination with other companies in testing circuits. Learned how to configure multiplexers and DWDM equipment. Management were very supportive. Need to work and learn by yourself. Working on top of the mountain during cut-over is the hardest. When you complete and delivered the job is the most enjoyable part specially when you know that the customer was eager to get the job done.

RF Scoping engineer, Construction Manager (Current Employee) –  Santa Fe Springs, CAAugust 18, 2015
MYCOM has given me a lot of opportunity to learn and grow in the telecommunication management field.

MYCOM has a great team in the LA office but efforts are lost to poor communication thru out the company. There are major miscommunication between OPS, Finance and executive management often making business difficult to conduct.
Pros
working with friendly coworkers to achieve goals
Cons
lack of training and management software

Absolutely a great career to have while raising a family. Work security was defiantly low.
Construction manager (Former Employee) –  Centennial, COJanuary 13, 2015
A typical day at Mycom was a deployment meeting each morning to take ownership of our action items and then off to the field to work with the contractors on site builds.

I have learned much through out my time at Mycom from working directly with the client from ms-95 starting schedule to ms-155 close out turn over packages to hands on install with fiber 7705 and router installs along with the provisioning , complete installs of UMTS and LTE to integration.

Mycom went through several managers while my time there which made things a little unsettling. Until 2014 they brought in a new director who has stuck with it and doing a great job.,

Very few co-workers the ones I had were great and learned a lot from them.

Was getting good quality contractors to complete good work from beginning to end.

Was working the RMR region Loved it!
Pros
Great benefits and PTO
Cons
Work security low

Company doesnt seem to be going anywhere
Employee (Current Employee) –  Western USMay 22, 2013
Very Top Heavy company. Poorly managed. No accountability. No Oversight. No structure. Be aware that you will be required to pay for everything from Gas to materials out of pocket and get reimbursed 3 to 4 weeks later. That creates a financial hardship for some. New Mycom Policy is no company vehicles. Perfect example of bad management decisions. Mycom has potential but has alot of growing and needs to work through internall issues. Expanded too fast. Wrong people put into upper management positions
Pros
Good Health care that starts immediately after you get hired. Company Cell Phone, Laptop
Cons
Laptops are refurbs. Slow, old OS and don't work very well. No Company Vehicles, No Milage reimbursement, just gas reimbursement.

Poor Management = Unhappy Employees
CM (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZMarch 5, 2015
The Arizona office will fail. Between the Director of Operations and the one Project Manager in that office, this office will not be around for long. These two positions are highly compensated for doing absolutely nothing. The employees that are lower on the management ladder get all of the work to do while the two higher ups sit around doing nothing. Maybe one day the corporate office will see what is going on in Arizona and make a change or for that matter just close the Arizona market because the bad reputation is growing rapidly.

Logistics Manager (Current Employee) –  Santa Fe Springs, CAMarch 18, 2013
This is a very good company. In just a short time they have skyrocketed to the top of the Telecom industry for AT&T. Recently they have expanded past their capacity and have overwhelmed themselves with work. This company is still in its growing stages but they over work their workers without any following appreciation.
Pros
up and coming company in the telecom industry
Cons
limited chance for advancement

At first it wasn't bad.
Field Engineer (Former Employee) –  Western USDecember 10, 2012
The job itself is fun and the pay when you get paid is not bad however this is the worst run most top heavy company I have every worked for. The travel is almost 100% and they have no consideration for your personal life,family life or safety . Also all your expenses come out of your own pocket.Witch you may or may not be reimbursed for in a timely manner. I really hated to leave. I loved the work but I could no longer stand doing it for Mycom.
Pros
easy fun job
Cons
mismanaged
