Company changed direction
Low Voltage Cable Technician (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXFebruary 13, 2019
Company was moving forward with a good plan and then hired one bad apple that came in and had to be the center of attention. It was a snap decision to hire him....the company was told if you hire him we will do business with you..so he was hired and the company never gave them any business. So we are left to suffer because the management made a very bad immature decision.
Cons
work environment, always need to be looking over your shoulder

Co-Workers were okay, management has no clue what they are doing and micro manage to feel like they are doing there job.
Technician (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXDecember 7, 2018
Electrical side is great treat you really well, get you what you need in a timely manner. It's definitely like a brother hood. The low voltage side on the other hand is horrible. There's no opportunity to advance unless you play video games with upper management, and is basically the good ol’ boy system there. It's not what you know but who you blow.
Pros
Great benefits but could be better
Cons
Electrical side is great!!! Low Voltage should close the doors

Good Place to work but not much room for advancement
Electrician/General Foreman (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXDecember 2, 2018
Good place to work and if you know people in the higher positions you can advance but if not you really have to prove yourself. Even so there are a lot of cliques and they already have there people in place. A lot of brown nosing going around instead of rewarding the hard workers and knowledgeable employees.
Pros
Always have a lot of work
Cons
Need to know people in management or brown nose them to advance

Paragraphs are the building blocks of papers. Many students define paragraphs in terms of length: a paragraph is a group of at least five sentences, a paragraph is half a page long, etc. In reality, though, the unity and coherence of ideas among sentences is what constitutes a paragraph. Ff

Company would make you go out your own way, and go back and forth to places without even it being ready or approved.
Lead man (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 7, 2018
Waste of time here, they don’t value their employees.
No raises whatsoever , and I’ve seen their best guys mistreated daily for any little thing, you will never see the same people here because of the amount that quit.
