    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Firecom full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Weekly pay, the company is divided into different divisions so you can move out of you area just ask. The ladies bathroom is clean.

    Cons

    No room for growth. Workers are on drugs and smoke Marijuana, yuck. Assistant Project Manager hires friends and family, good luck. Drafting sucks here they use Auto CAD wrong. Project Managers don't know Auto Cad so higher up drafters can get away with a lot, and will make you look useless to keep their job. Jealousy between divisions. They all want each other to fail. They pay women less than men. If you are young they pay you less. Not about experience. They are afraid of experience you can take their jobs. Drafting test finish wiring diagram in 15 minutes they will die to hire you. Give you a half an hour to finish. A lot of miserable people who work for the company a long time. They use Temp Agencies to fill in spots and then terminate once job is done.
    Racist racist racist well most of the whites especially the Italians.

    I worked at Firecom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lenient with schooling and they'll accommodate to your schedule. They offer part-time Learned alot about fire alarms. Good benefits and weekly pay.

    Cons

    Terrible, terrible management, limited growth. They move workers around to fill vacant spots like a checkerboard, high turnover, 10+ employee resignation in under a two year period that I know of. Alot of brown-nose employees. Salesman are clueless of the products they're selling, many contradictions to what is engineered.

    Advice to Management

    Project managers need management and character training, some were never in the office, other's have authoritarian issues and try to micro manage. Better salesman training.

    Pros

    Some great friendly people to work for

    Cons

    Bad management with no real on the job training. Much of what is needed to know is by word of mouth or when a project changes.

    Advice to Management

    Devise a training program for incoming employees joining the company
