    Pros

    The supervisory support was suberb! It was a good working environment at the local level.

    Cons

    Company lied about security of job when government program was cancelled! They kept telling us that our job was secure in the face of an impending government program cancellation, but when it occurred, we were laid off!

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees when you're going to lose a contract!!! Don't keep telling us we're safe when you know better and don't give us advanced notice to start looking for another position.

    Pros

    If you are on site, they pretty much leave you alone. Average starting salaries.

    Cons

    No job training. Little advancement. Raises outside the contract minimum are hard to come by. Too much emphasis on meaningless metrics/timecards. Bonus is a couple hundred a year.

    Advice to Management

    If people are your greatest asset, show it. Help them develop and grow and then pay them when they do. Be more honest and open about business decisions and contract realities.
