    I enjoy working here.

    Cisco Voice Engineer (Current Employee) Fort Worth, TX

    ProsAfter April 2013 working in IT got 75% better. A lot of improvements have been made within the IT department as a whole and there are good IT managers willing to give you a chance to move up if you work hard. Training is okay. Most of the training I've gotten to advance my career has been done on my own initiative, at my own expense, and on my own time. There is a lot of opportunity to learn and get experience with a wide spectrum of technologies. Not a lot of perks company wise that I can think of.

    ConsAs far as job security, it's only good when there's a major war going on.

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

    Good first job where I gain lots of education and experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Fort Worth, TX

    ProsGreat Mentors
    Opportunities to grow and advance in your career.
    Educational/tuition reimbursement opportunities.
    Set policies and procedures set in place for almost anything (I didn't realize how valuable this was until I worked for a company with no policies/procedures).
    Great Benefits

    ConsWork/life balance - at times I was working 70-80 hours per week, on-call and expected to be available 24/7.
    Some favoritism
    Some people in management positions did not deserve them or do a good job in them, making it more difficult for their employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOverall I feel like this is a good company to work for, but a lot of that has to do with the department and people that you work with/for. I believe that it opened many doors for me and taught me so much.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The experience gained here was rewarding in supporting our troops and the US Navy Fleet directly.

    Aircraft Mechanical II (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsMultiudes of different equipment to work on, and write new NDI Techiques. I never know what is going to come through my doors.

    ConsLack of training incentives to progress, to learn more, at least new currnet techniques To many individuals carrying the administrative load of people in higher places, preventing the artisians to progress.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA little more discipline with consequences is needed across the board. If you lead by example people will respect you, and they will follow.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
