Company Culture

The only reason it got a 2 was because the company workers are great.

Support from management

They tell you what they want and you can succeed in some but not all aspects. Your raise comes from the opinion of a customers view on the company which of course everyone thinks costs too much giving you low ratings.

Teamwork

Co workers are great. Everyone as a whole disagrees with the way the company is run.

Overall compensation for your work

The one good thing here is that they pay you well, but that is so no one unionized.

Office / Work Environment

Lot of people have health issues when at the company for a couple years.

Work-Life Balance

Does not accommodate your life. Doesn't care about school. I was unable to finish my associates due to policy changes in the scheduling.

Company Image

Nothe proud of what I did at all. Just another person of many. Replaceable at any time.

Company Culture

The company is a good place to work if you want to make a career out of it. The younger you start the better it is going forward.

Teamwork

This is mixed. Some colleagues form teams of friendships so they would help that team verses another person unless they were told to but the Night crew is usually the best teams because they are the last shift and all want to come back and not let a tech be outside alone at the end "ESPECIALLY in the WINTER!!" I developed Some great friendships at the depot I worked at. At the end of the day it's still a business and people have there own lives to go back to.

Management is Soso supervisors the same. Some great and others well .... it's what it is

Freedom to work independently

With this job your working alone 85% of the time, that's how the life of a tech is. The other 15% you can be on a project with another tech or you can be helping somone that's running behind.

Gender Equality

As a field service tech there aren't any women where I worked because of the type of work we had to do but they are welcome to apply without behind denied a chance.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Age really isn't an issue here. I worked with techs that were in there 50s and showing these young bucks how to do things better and safer.
As long as your physically and mentally able to do the job, then that's what matters.

Career Development

If you come in the business young enough then there's plenty of opportunities to grow within the complany as long as you show the drive and skills to advance.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay wise could be better to what skills you have. But the hours are there especially during and after storms and natural disasters.

Office / Work Environment

You have to creat your own comfort. If it doesn't feel right then fix it or get with a senior tech to find a way to make you more comfortable

Environmental Friendliness

Yes and no and I am going to leave it right there.

Work-Life Balance

As a field tech there's always work!!!! If you want the hours and can show you know what your doing then the hours are there for the taking.. if you just want to work your 8 hours then go home then it's "still ok" but when others are running behind and you just leave at your time then you won't make much friends.

You can balance it out if you have to but it's tricky but doable.

Company Image

Great company. If this company is where I moved too now in FL I would join back in a heart beat.
Theses cable companies in FL would lose hands down to optimum if they ever came here.

Job Security

As a field service technician is is very very hard to get fired. Some techs resign or quit due to mixed reasons but it's hard to mess up that bad.

Workplace Safety

This company is all about safety. They have meetings weekly and part of tech discussion is safely first.

Challenging Work

Almost every day is a challenge for the most part. When you get a route you never know what the situations are going to be when you get to the customers house or business.
To be honest I kinda liked that because it made it fun. A job without challenges gets boring pretty quick!!
Your mood can vary from customer to customer but for most part most of my customers gave me a reason to smile "key word is most!!l

Inclusive / Diverse

For the most part your opinions do make a difference but as long as it's a majority that presents it. Single opinions tend to get sweept under the rug.
There is a very diverse team though with many different cultures which is great.

Support from management

Ask for help get a different answers each time you ask

Teamwork

None

Overall compensation for your work

Benefits good don't get paid based on what you know. A new hire will make more then someone that gets promoted the new hire will take less calls.

Work-Life Balance

You will not have a personal life your shift will change every 6 months they will not make any exception even if you go to school

Job Security

Company was just sold don't know if employee will have a job onces it goes through and management doesn't say anything

Workplace Safety

Security is a joke there have been issue with mental health employee that every employee knows about and management has not even sent out an email or addressed it

What I like about the company

Free cable

What I dislike about the company

No one has your back feels like they are just looking for ways to fire you
