    I have been working at ECRS full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Great work environment
    -Great for exposure to various technical concepts

    Cons

    -Nepotism. Competency doesn't come into account in the choosing of some (not all) leadership.
    -Pay and benefits are embarrassing given many less demanding tech jobs and industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    ECRS is running a marathon, and at times, we're way out front in the lead, but at what cost? Our ankles are sore, our shoes are untied, and we're suffering from dehydration. Stop trying to trim the fat on costs that would benefit employees (lower than standard hourly pay, high deductible insurance) or else they'll find better opportunities.

    Pros

    Challenging environment, great product, national reach, large customer base, amazing co-workers.

    Cons

    Lower than typical pay for many jobs, long hours, lack of formal training programs, too many corporate policies.

    Develop better training methods, listen to employees when they have concerns, keep the entrepreneurial spirit without getting to rigid and corporate

    Pros

    This is a company where every employee can have a direct impact on daily operations. It will be up to the individual as to whether that impact is positive or negative. I have been working at ECRS for a good while now, and I know that the negative impact employees are never here for long. They either quit, or are let go, as to not bring the company down with them.

    Management is responsive and fair. Compensation is evaluated with performance and is among the highest in our area. Benefits are better than any of my friends at other companies.

    Founded in 1989, the company is fiscally conservative and always runs in the black. Job security is never a worry if you are contributing to the company in a positive way.

    If you are smart, motivated, and work well with others, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    As a constantly growing company, policies and positions shift frequently. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it can be challenging at times.

    I worked at ECRS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Met some awesome people. Lots of opportunity to grow.

    Cons

    Met some of the worst people.
    Pretty low pay in comparison; does twice the work for the pay as is.
    Very competitive environment where cliques are plentiful.
    A lot of overlooked ignorance that would be considered unacceptable anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the young people too; if you don't, you won't have anyone to bring new ideas in when the older people leave.

    Pros

    Extremely positive workplace. Negativity is not tolerated. Expect to work hard, but feel rewarded. Very family-oriented with a strong emphasis on teamwork. Overall management team is extremely competent and understanding.

    Cons

    Extensive policy and rules, upper management is sometimes allowed to break these policy rules when others are not.

    Advice to Management

    For the most part keep doing what you are doing. Be cognizant of the fact employees see when rules are bent for a few but not all.

    Pros

    Great people to work with in your respective department, Senior leadership is very family oriented, work-life balance is great. Very flexible in schedules.

    Cons

    Expected to take workload from departments that employ incompetent, lazy, people who have no care for customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Hold all departments to the same standards, if one division of the company is expected to conform to policy...all divisions should!
