I worked at Metron Aviation

Pros

The working environment was fun and friendly. I loved the people that I worked with and they really made it feel like family atmosphere.

Cons

The pay scale is terrible! Companies are paying 50-100% more for the same experience. Not a very good structure for promotions or abilities to climb the ladder. Senior management is never promoted from within but hired in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase what your paying people. Giving senior management large salaries and paying the real workers peanuts wont provide you anything but a high level of churn. And the more churn you have the lower your quality of work is.
Also have a better review/promotion process. People want to feel like they are making progress not that they are not getting anywhere!

    I have been working at Metron Aviation

    Pros

    Intellectually challenging work, lots of paid time off, paid overtime

    Cons

    Pay is below market average, they tend to hire upper management from outside the company rather than promoting from within; used to be fun to work here, now not so much

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within and you'll calm some of the disgruntled employees thinking this is a place where your career advancement comes to die, make realistic goals to our parent company

    I have been working at Metron Aviation full-time

    Pros

    - Work/Life balance is good. Most managers are flexible and your work schedule can work around your life.
    - Projects are interesting and innovative
    - Opportunities to work on different projects

    Cons

    - Management and other high-paying positions are almost always hired from outside the company. Upper managers hire and promote their friends (either from outside or inside) and not based on qualifications.
    - Top heavy company
    - Claim to offer bonuses and profit sharing as part of compensation, but haven't in several years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Promote and give opportunity to employees within the organization.
