Pros

Large company with MANY benefits

Cons

Contractual work. If the company doesnt get a contract, you don't get to work... and they don't pay you if you don't work.

    Pros

    Great place if you're lazy and prefer to not really work.

    Cons

    NG ES has managed to boil every job down to the most menial and excruciatingly boring task. There are so many layers of management, and non of them seem to have a clue. Raises come once a year if you're lucky and they don't keep up with inflation. The convoluted performance appraisal system is just a way for them to waste your time and in the end you'll receive the going raise +/- 1% depending on how your manager likes you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop conducting gallup surveys to try to figure out how to better engage your employees. Drastic changes need to be made, nothing from a survey is going to help explain how to fix the severe cultural issues.

    Former Employee - APM  in  Carson, CA
    Former Employee - APM in Carson, CA

    Pros

    Work was varied and interesting. The people working there were very dedicated and aware they were providing products that would be used by the American soldier. The quality of the work saved American soldiers' lives.
    One more good thing: since you needed a security clearance to work there, you didn;t need to worry about your job be outsourced offshore.

    Cons

    The funding levels were always fluctuating which meant that staffing levels on projects was constantly changing. And having the US government as the sole customer was a real pain.
    Having a security clearance was a burden even if you were not working on a classified project. For example, you were required to report any contact with foreign nationals --- quite the burden if you live in an area like So Cal which has a large immigrant population. Also, before you took any vacation overseas you had to fill out paperwork about your trip and itinerary down to your flight and seat assignments. And of course a detailed report when you returned.
