    Pros

    Great HR, Finance Department.Excellent compliance ethos. Never an issue with corporate, and they went many extra miles when abrupt endings occurred on contracts they had.

    Some Senior project management lacked skills in administrating and managing people. Many were hired for their credentials, rather then their abilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a good program, provided excellent overall support and handled the day to day issues well. More clarity of what field management can and can't do would be appreciated.

    Current Employee - Director of Pricing in Fort Worth, TX

    Pros

    Gaffney's vision, leadership, mentoring. Completely different company since Cerberus bought us.

    Cons

    "It's not my job"; "It's the COE's fault", "COE's do not support us" and like statements from middle management and below that tarnish relationships.
    Common statements within BATs and COEs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't compound bad decision made several years ago and perpetuate it. It might be better to snap a chalk line and start over.

    Pros

    Pay was always on time. Great travel benefits. Afforded the leeway to be dynamic in the performance of my duties.

    Cons

    HR support could be much better. HQs seemed to focus on HQs issues versus the mission that was providing them the revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on supporting what is happening with the revenue earners and how to build a leaner HQ.

    Pros

    Great support from management at all levels. Being able to just get away to Dubai for three days is a bonus.

    Cons

    Very harsh environment, so if you have allergies to dust this is most definitely not the place for you. The summer will burn your biscuits as in HOT HOT HOT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to be there for your subordinates especially during this period of the project.
