Pros

Great people focused on the test mission, but still have a desire to take care of people.

Cons

NSPS was a waste of time as a performance personal system.

Advice to Management

Allow more diversity in the workplace. Promote more women and minorities in leadership roles. Have a formal mentoring program. Trial period for new supervisors to see how their employees rate them as supervisors before they are permanent.

    Pros

    Great schedule flexibility 8's or 4/10 shifts, low stress, set hours, federal holidays and benefits

    Cons

    Lower pay than competitive commercial companies such as Northrop Gruman, Lockheed-Martin, GE or Pratt & Whitney. Not much room for career advancement. There is not very much money being put into my work center and the attrition rate is very rapid at the moment. No recent hires in years!

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees: find bonus and promotion opportunities. Many are leaving to go make more money next door or down the road.
