    Pros

    The environment is very easy going and the managers are very understanding
    Coworkers are nice and are very realistic when it comes to decision making
    The people are knowledgable and willing to help if you don't understand or are still learning

    Cons

    In comparison to industry standards, the pay is within the 15th percentile.
    We're always overloaded. 9 hour days at least. Compensation for extra hours is non-existent/minimal.
    Compared to industry, the benefits aren't amazing.

    Management is weak.
    In Romania base the management hired only relatives (nepotism negative)

    There is a lot of waste that could be cut to reduce expenses by manager in Romania base, the VPs should check this.

    Pros

    Knowledgeable technicians and flexible work schedule. I enjoyed working in the field with no supervision and being trusted to complete tasks with trust. Pay is very competitive.

    Cons

    Business is very up and down meaning you never know when you might have long periods of time with no work or pay. Training is still being developed and not up to par with the demands of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on sustaining the company and less on developing different services that technicians have little or no knowledge of.

    Pros

    People are generally nice. There are maybe some annoying people but not many.

    Cons

    Salary is never increase. Even when it increased, flat increase for everybody so it decreased my motivation.

  11. Good company to work for but the systems in place make your job harder than it should be.

    Pros

    Good 401K match with great benefits. Time off usually isn't an issue.

    Cons

    Upper management is out of touch with what really occurs at the local level. Company does not place high value on employees who have worked their way up in the ranks. Company places too high of a value on pedigrees rather than actual job experience and ability to do the job competently.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the hard working employees you already have and stop looking for a new widgets elsewhere. Develop the talent you have and give back to the employees.
