    Pros

    4 0 1 k free parking

    Cons

    no raise in 4 years a pittance of 50 cents when I did get one. Glowing reviews, cudos, and awards for 50 cents!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes, you paid your employees the least of all companies who did the same work.

    Pros

    Checks always on time. Was good about getting the tools needed for the job.

    Cons

    Was not a very woman friendly place to work for the paid by hour employees. Women if you go to work there an stick it out you will move up however it is very hard. People would get hired in with no experience an make more than the people who had been with the company for years an when you report it to ethics be ready they will find a reason to fire you.They say they are a very honest company but are far from it. If you are one of the people they have fired an was told you can come back to work in 1 year, you might as well move on an never plan to return,even if your managers liked your work an no matter how skilled you are. HR will make sure you do not return. Safety is a joke they tell you they are big on safety but it is a front they really don't care if someone gets hurt just if they can get sued for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Women need to be taught to do same job as guys an not be treated like maids, if we wanted to be maids there are companies like Molly Maids. Bathrooms for the hourly women need upgraded an vending machines put in for personal items for them. Everyone has friends an favorites but the Good Ole Boy system will make the company fail,pay attention to the employees that have been taking care of your company without them your job is not needed.

    Pros

    Good benefits, reasonable work/life balance, and access to many training resources. Can be a great place to work if you land yourself on the right project.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities seem low if you're on a contract, as many of the employees are. Quality of management is very hit or miss. Job security for people on contract is low across the whole of the defense industry - demand is cyclical in this line of work.

    When the contracts were awarded, work was good. Positions held by people lacking credentials or education background.

    Pros

    Good people to work with for the most part. OK benefits. Enjoyed the work environment and location.

    Cons

    Bare minimum compensation for positive reviews and work productivity. Actually was insulting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your employees. Management seemed to have high praises for quality employees yet rewarded with paltry raises..... Insulting to a point.
    OK benefits but seems more and more are disappearing or the cost is being deducted from the employees earnings.

    Pros

    Great experience working with management and surrounding project teams. Very accommodating with time off, lots of training, great and knowledgeable technicians to work with. Strengthened my technical and PM skills.
