Company Culture

The culture is great; but, it is a tool to manipulate you and string you along so that you can work through all the bad leads to find the good leads. They are constantly hiring which is telling. They will bleed you dry promising you great pay; but, it only pays for the chosen ones.

Support from management

Support is great; but, management will just use you to increase their numbers.

Teamwork

The team work is great; but, it’s a hustle to manipulate you to keep you working.

Internal Communication

Communication is great. They will coach you up as much as they can! But, no matter how much coaching they give you will get you off a bad “routing.”

Career Development

Great career development for your next job.

Overall compensation for your work

The compensation is great if you can sell; but, only the select few sell. They have a system where you have to weed through all the bad leads to find the good ones. Who gets what lead is how they control you.

Office / Work Environment

Work environment is great; but, that is to blind you from the lack of money, the revolving door of people quitting, and manipulation they use to string you along. I watched people go broke, homeless, loose possessions trying to make it work

Company Image

Great image that hides an exploitative system over the workers and psychological manipulations to sell

Job Security

Longest employee I met has worked here for 5 years. Met a couple that last 2 years. You are considered a veteran if you last a year. They say that people quit or are fired bc of attendance; but, if the job was so great and compensated them they would find the right people that would stick w the company.

Challenging Work

Challenging for sure bc most people don’t know how they are gonna cover their next bills

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would encourage management to make an effort toward fairness. Also, I would continue to push for honesty from sales and the field departments.

What I like about the company

I was put in a very challenging position in the permitting department. However, after establishing a positive relationship with leadership, I was afforded many opportunities to lead projects and to succeed in an intense environment. This was stressful but highly rewarding to me.

What I dislike about the company

Sometimes, management has a tendency to play favorites. People get promotions who are well-liked and people who don't "click" with management often find it to be a very difficult place to work. I was liked by management and there was a clear distinction between how I and some of my peers were treated, which bothered me.
