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.

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.
