Commissioning Manager (Current Employee) –  Farmington Hills, MIOctober 10, 2017
Fives has many reasons to like the place , but they also have many reasons to dislike. Start at 5:am work to 5:pm to many managers without direction.All managers had there own opinion about what needed to be done. Everyone worked together getting the job done. the 2 hour meetings that leaded nowhere. Dealing with the customer getting the job completed.

Good place to work, good benefits, difficult to advance
Project Manager/Sales (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, ALAugust 27, 2016
With this company there is no typical day as everyday provides new challenges. With project management, everything is always thought out in detail. Management helps work through details and is always there for support. Co workers are supportive and lend a hand when needed. The hardest part of the job was the extended travel dates, was very difficult with family. The best part of the job was providing complete and working solutions to the customers.
Pros
Steady work
Cons
Lots of travel
