Not an enjoyable place to work.
would rather not say (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJuly 23, 2018
Micromanaged. No recognition or compensation for jobs done well. A lot of back-stabbing. Large turnover; it seems like no one is in it for the long haul.

Rather Not Say (Former Employee) –  Rosedale, MDJune 26, 2018
Alban claims to be a family oriented company, but they’re anything but. Don’t you dare take your paid time off to care for your child. Manger will approve the time, but then use it against you. Constantly looking for reasons to let people go. Rules aren’t consistent. One person can come in late every day; another person, it’s considered excessive to even be late at all. Or a manager can leave early every Friday in the summer; but another gets warned for having to leave early for a dr appointment. Managers micromanage with some things, then don’t want to hear from you, when you need them. Extremely toxic place to be.
Pros
Paid Time Off
Cons
Get penalized for taking Paid Time Off. Inconsistent enforcement of so called policies.

Hard place to work
FIELD SERVICE SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJune 4, 2018
Very low pay and the company does not even make an attempt to keep their employees or compete with other employers. Fairly flexible when it comes to family life but communication is a serious problem.

Rentals Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCMarch 27, 2018
A very dynamic place to work. Company is very organized. Management is stable. A lot of oversight is the culture. Paperwork is heavy. Completing amazing jobs was the reward.

Toxic environment
Field Service Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Elkridge, MDMarch 11, 2018
Basically as a manager there I found out that Alban sees people as expendable and will force you to write people up or fire them for the most minor offense. Work here at your own risk. Was told by my technicians that I was the 3rd supervisor that they had had in a year and a half and "not to get comfortable". The General Manager at Elkridge is a control freak that micromanages everything,everyone, and has to be the smartest man in the room. The dispatchers are toxic and will stab people in the back to try to advance themselves, so don't be nice to them. The parts department is inept and constantly orders or ships the wrong parts. Overall I got out of there as soon as possible.
Pros
Benefits and pay were not bad and I liked my technicians
Cons
Upper management was a joke, not worth the headache nor the long hours

Constant Challenge of work environment (enjoyable)
Executive Account Manager - Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Elkridge, MDNovember 1, 2013
A typical day is deals with ongoing communication with customers current ongoing projects dealing with scheduling, costing, government contracting, FAR clauses,

When not dealing with current customers, I spend my time contacting new business prospects that deal in OCONUS government contracting projects. The target customer will be dealing with large multi-year, multi-million dollar projects in hazardous areas or in classified government locations.

I have a very strong support staff that enjoys challenges that makes presenting new opportunities to the staff a typically a pleasurable experience.


The challenge with the position is dealing with multiple time zone projects located all around the world. This makes for a very long work day and work week.

Another challenge with the position is finding talented personnel that are willing to put in long hours, travel overseas into hazardous work environment, and have the ability to hold a government clearance.
Pros
Constant Challenge of capturing new business adds excitement to the work week.
Cons
Unknown career path options
