    I worked at Capstone Corporation as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Worked under the ACES contract with HP at NASA facilities. There I got to meet some great and interesting people. Coworkers were great, we quickly became good friends.

    Cons

    Horrible work environment due to lack of management/representation at the work site. Our "managers" were HP employees. These clowns were driven by competing with other sites to see who can deploy the most computer systems in one day. We were working 10-12 hour days trying to hit numbers set by the "managers". We were promised overtime by the HP management but never saw the extra money. When we complained to Capstone HR they just brushed it off, we never heard back from them. The HP managers bought us lunch "to show their appreciation". We soon found out that it was to keep us on the job site and take less time for our lunch. For the most part we managed our selves and developed ways to streamline and speed up the deployment of equipment. This company on cares about the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees if they are being mistreated by onsite management. Don't be cheap, reward employees for their hard work.

    I worked at Capstone Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Small company, great benefits, good contracts

    Cons

    During the transition from HQ US JFCOM to the HR JS I was continuously told I was golden or hand picked and my job was secure. This was comforting since I saw a 40% reduction of the work force implemented. This continued for several months, still the same line your golden. On 20 Aug 2011, I was asked to call my Division chief at a specific number on a private line. I did and he told me my position was being changed to an Army background and my background was Air Force my last day would be 31 Aug 2011. So I was given 11 days to find a job during the worst contractor reduction in the last 20 years. Thank you so very much!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    After three years of commuting more than 130 miles a day and being stuck in traffic from 4 to 5 hours each work day I was given a whopping two weeks severance pay. Perhaps you should rethink the cheapness with which you operate it will bite you in the end!

    Pros

    They have taken care of me through some of my most difficult live challenges. Good benefits, and great human resources department. They take care of their people... If they can.

    Cons

    They are a contracting company, so if your contract goes away the will try to place you elsewhere. Over the course of my employment they have lost some great upper management, and this has led to less interaction with remote stations.
