    Current Employee - Electrical Engineer in Pittsfield, MA

    I have been working at National Technical Systems full-time (more than a year)


    Company and higher ups are very accessible and interesting in every employee. I love working here, and the company really makes you feel valued in terms of pay, benefits, and such.


    All of the "corporate roles" GM and above, are well defined. Roles below the GM - engineers, administrative staff, technicians, etc. are not well defined, making it difficult to show "going above and beyond" skills.
