    Good, but easily could have been better.

    Senior Contract Administrator (Former Employee)
    Knoxville, TN

    ProsVery little, if any; management involvement in daily activities.

    ConsVery thing has to be approved by a Vice President or above. They either do not know how to delegate authority or are afraid to delegate authority.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to delegate authority. Chasing for Vice Presidents to get signatures for routine business matters is a waste of money / time.

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

    Good overall experience for an entry level engineer.

    Project Engineer (Former Employee)
    Baton Rouge, LA

    ProsDiverse, interesting projects, fun work environment, access to technology and resources, great peer group/team working relationships. Fair Salaries (if you negotiate), flexible hours, and travel opportunities. If you can find an advocate in the upper managment structure, you can do well.

    ConsConstant M&A integration and re-organization. No apparent long-term vision. Never ending cycle of middle management changes. Poor implementation of mentorship and staff development programs. Bitter employees of acquired firms that were not integrated into corporate could create a poisonous work environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide better integration of professionals from acquired companies, you purchased them for a reason, integrate them or help them move on. Build bridges between entry level staff and technical and operations management, the generation gap is widening and will become a real problem in the next decade. Stop the management roller coaster, and keep employees informed, our generation is the driven by the 24 hour news cycle; if you don't provide information on the vision and direction of the company on a consistent basis or follow through on previous management plans you will not be able to maintain a connected, dedicated workforce.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Underpaid long time employee

    Scientist IIII (Current Employee)
    Lawrenceville, NJ

    ProsA good place to work with benifits and vacation.

    ConsThe pay is way below the average for this area of the country.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't give executive bonuses when you don't give cost of living raises to the "troops" that perform the work.

    Easy yet boring

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood amount of time off, they offer 9-40 schedules so every other week you get a 3 day weekend which is nice

    ConsLots of work and overtime that you'll never get paid for, job is at time mind numbingly boring, very little employee appreciation

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