Pros

The pay is okay, and the benefits are great. There are also some really great people that work there.

Cons

Management is openly hostile and abusive to the employees. It's a very top-down Machiavellian approach to management. You'd think it was a union plant, but it isn't, and thankfully it's not, because the atmosphere would be even more poisonous, but it's management structure and style is set up like a union plant.

There is no means to really address problems between management and the workers, and if you bring it up, you are risking your job. It's a very hostile environment, and it is an environment that rewards cronyism more than competence and work ethic. It's also an environment that discourages people from taking responsibility for anything. So there is a lot of unnecessary finger pointing over any production problems that arise.

NAS also doesn't know the meaning of the term "preventive maintenance," and "safety" is just a term they use, but they don't really mean it. They run equipment until it completely breaks down, often putting the safety of the employees running it in jeopardy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

NAS would be a lot better place to work if it had less bureaucracy between upper management and the people on the lines doing the work. They'd also be more profitable, as much of that bureaucracy isn't giving them a very good return on investment.

    Pros

    Good benefits, competitive salary, clean working environment.

    Cons

    There is a lot of abuse of employees by supervisors and managers. Management uses bullying and intimidation to try and control employees. High levels of suspicion from management towards employees. There is no process written or otherwise for reporting abuse from management, and many times when people complain about their treatment they are fired. Employees are subjected to condescension and implied threats against their employment. NAS steps right up to the line of illegality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set up clearly written reporting procedures for complaints about harassment, bullying, intimidation, or blatant disrespect between management to employees. Require sensitivity training, and provide management training responsibilities for anyone seeking management positions.
