Due to the nature of their work, many employees must work odd hours when they can gain access to work sites on clients property. Its really not the work-life balance but adapting to changing schedule that may cause problems for some employees with families. Peer pressure is felt on jobsites due to quick deadlines but most employees are motivated so you place the pressure on yourself to succeed.
Poor job stability is in the nature of the industry, not this employer. Good hourly employees are hired back after a prolonged slowdown in work. Salaried employees are immune to short layoffs but could be affected by industry depressions.
The challenge for most is to accomplish a lot in a short timeframe. You must be organized, planning ahead and able to make quick decisions should a crisis arise. You definately get a sense of accomplishment on jobsites. I believe that those supporting the field operations also share in this. The company is the best in the industry.
What I like about the company
Financially stable, embraces changing technology and diverse work force.
What I dislike about the company
Needs an employee assessment program with quarterly or semi-annual reviews for feedback.
