    I have been working at Austin Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of work all across the United States and expanding

    Cons

    Upper mgmt not strong at all. Not involved on large projects enough . Jobs not bided correctly

    Advice to Management

    Get proactive. Get out there and see a project and predict problems and deviate as needed . Make sure the bid is on par for our requirements. Remember if you man up directs you will need to man up Indirects. Field verification is a must. Do not have too many people multitasking g so much that they are not able to fulfill their primary role. One team starts with you.
