    Pros

    It was a really laid back work environment. There are a lot of seasoned engineers working together in various capacities. There was always help and a wide variety of projects. Contracting out to other locations allowed for a variety of work and hands-on experience.

    Cons

    The work is slow, there is not a whole lot of room to move up and there is a general lack of enthusiasm which is contagious. If you are looking for something to further your career or challenge you this is not necessarily the best fit. If you are looking for something stable and low key then it is a great environment for you.

    Advice to Management

    It is hard to keep tabs on all the different projects that are being worked on and overall it was a great experience working there. I would say keeping on top of employees and providing a larger variety of work projects would greatly help with the versatility of the employees.

    Pros

    Able to do work for large corporations while working in a smaller company environment. People were very professional and pleasant to work with. Managers were very candid and honest about work prospects.

    Cons

    Temporary work; always competing for jobs on cost basis which affects availability of work.
