Away from home alot, long hours
Field Engineer III (Former Employee) –  Punxsutawney, PADecember 20, 2016
Must be able to take the good with the bad, there are many good days on location and many days where issues seem to plague site. The ups and downs of the industry cause you to question whether you will still have a job in another 5 years. Overall the crew is what makes the job,
Cons
Being away from home

Good work. Extremely poor managment.
coax/ fiber optic cable splicer (Current Employee) –  Hastings, MNOctober 31, 2016
Love the work itself,and the coworkers in the field. However management team is not the greatest. Has the " I don't care what you have to do to get it done( safe or unsafe) just get it done" attitude. You can learn a good amount from the guys in the field who are usually extremely helpful. One perk of the job is no one looks over your shoulder and get to go into buildings most people will never get to go into. For the most part hours are there but again, over look many things and want you to work in unsafe conditions.
Pros
Get paid to drive, See many cool buildings, Great coworkers (as far as non-office employees go) get to work outside 50% of the time.
Cons
No communication, bad planning, ask you to do things that are unsafe ex: stand on top of 12' ladder to reach 20' warehouse rafters.

Hard working family environment
Architect (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXSeptember 13, 2016
I worked here for almost a decade, through their growth spurts, refocusing efforts and corporate relocation; they have always provided good pay and great benifits but required hard work and absolute dedication to their mission statement to succeed. If you adapt to their ethos and realize each organizational unit is treated as an emerging startup each year that competes and wins or goes back to the drawing board, you'll soon realize that you have to stay on your "A" game and well integrated to advance into management and/or senior management.

This is not a company for slackers, they work their employees as hard as a flight operations group must to stay ahead of competitors. They also treat their employees like family and friends after the mission is completed, this involves employee outings and events that are pretty amazing for a growing company.
Pros
Industry exposure, employee training, knowledge transfer and travel
Cons
24/7 workplace that requires after hours work and additional studies to stay sharp

not a lot of room for advancement

Horrible Management
Security Guard (Former Employee) –  Laredo, TXSeptember 9, 2016
A company who cares more about making money then making sure it's employees are in good hands. Employees are out in the field no matter the climate, making sure everything is safe, without any help, and left without protection.
Pros
Non

Everything

Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Worthington, OHSeptember 6, 2016
Enjoyed working for different clientele. Did not like when I had to be transferred or the contract had expired. -Learned how to handle different types of customers and personalities. At times it was challenging due to the lack of support from the office or supervisory staff.

DME Clerk, Customer Service, QA, QC Agent (Former Employee) –  Dunedin, FLJune 26, 2016

Residents are great, management not so much.
WORKER (Former Employee) –  Woodinville, WAJune 22, 2016
The residents are really nice, and typically your coworkers are easy to work with. The management is very good at throwing their employees under the bus, they don't take responsibility for anything, they spend too much money on stupid unwanted things and not enough money on important things. They spend the majority of their time delegating their responsibilities to others, micromanaging your job, and treating you like you're nothing. I've done twice the work I was hired for at the same low wage, I'm often expected to work extra hours (despite living 35 mins away) so that the managers who live not even 10 mins away can go home early. They're not afraid to brag about how much money they make. Me and others have tried to call them out on it, but they always avoid confrontation and will often claim that's what we were hired to do. If you're looking to apply here, just be aware of these issues, and that we are always hiring, because people quit a lot.
Pros
Kind residents.
Cons
Lack of real leadership.
