    Not a great place to work

    Information Technology (Former Employee) Fullerton, CA (US)

    ProsHad enough equipment to work with as an IT professional.

    ConsThe owner, Larry Smead, has a very bad attitude and treats everyone with disrespect which filters down to the workforce creating a nasty work environment. A lot of foot traffic, many are fired or demoted for no specific reasons. Went through 4 engineers within a year. Unhappy working environment, not flexible. The Assistant CTO left the company and the company never hired another and put the helpdesk manager in charge of managing talented Systems and Network Engineers. Not a great choice...

    Advice to Senior ManagementHappy employees are hard working employees. Stop the political stuff and treat others with respect. Your employees are miserable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Definitely work but a lot of people coming and going

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAt times the bonuses/profit sharing was good, but unfortunately have not seen that in a few years. When not in the office, worksite dress attire is casual. Have met and worked with some very down to earth PM's.

    ConsA lot of office politics, upper management is a revolving door. At times too many chiefs for the tribe. Expect an endless list of priority one tasks, with very few compliments

    Change with the Times

    Project Administrative (Current Employee) Fullerton, CA (US)

    ProsDepth of resources and some financial strength.

    ConsCulture is of silo financial managment, not a happy, open, friendly, people oriented place to be. 1st year you earn only 5 days of PTO including sick, what kind of policy is THAT ?

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove the culture. Ask employees for input, survey them and our customers and see what really matters to each.

    TRAINING: Do you wish for new SASCO employees to become socialized to the workplace by default....or design ?

    Companies get exponential results from top-down participation in program areas like Safety and Marketing. When the entire office sits together for quarterly lunch meetings they can determine and communicate what is important and acheive expectations. Working is a silo without any idea of how to fully engage with expectations is a certain way to fail to meet them.

    Sasco Nepatists Extrordinaire

    Installer (Former Employee) Santa Barbara, CA (US)

    ProsThey had work where there was none in my town

    ConsOut of 9 people on the jobsite 7 were considered foremen. Mostly of hispanic decent they would speak in Spanish when they didnt want me to understand the conversation. Only the "in" crowd would be kept on after the job was over. Carrot dangling about the next job is SOP for this outfit when they have no intention of keeping you for the next job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet some good union representation for this company. The crews in the field are running off talented help to save their own skins. This is common practice especially if management is on site. Newer or lower level techs are kept from having input or even conversations with upper management. There is a reason for this.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
