    You are what you make it.

    I have been working at USRA

    Pros

    If you are favored by management they will make sure you are always happy.

    Cons

    If you are not apart of the "in crowd" it is obvious and you will not enjoy the work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop favoring a select few.

    I have been working at USRA as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    They will pretty much pay for your education. Middle management it very considerate and concerned for your happiness.

    Cons

    This year's merit increases had more to do with the company's desire to market itself as cheap labor than actual job performance.

    I have been working at USRA

    Pros

    Great deal of personal flexibility while working for Uncle Sam.

    Cons

    You are hired to do a job. Management is highly compensated for expanding the business and increasing revenue. Your job is to keep the customer happy. There is no opportunity for advancement within USRA. Use this position as an opportunity to feather your nest and move on to the next position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR development would help in improved customer service.
