Pros

Good People. Great Pay. Great Benefits. Loyal. Exciting work and opportunities. Great to work for a company that has so many fields of work all over the world. Diversity and Employee Resource Groups.

Cons

Gov't contracting, hard to know when your work will disappear or be awarded to another contractor. Management sometimes loses touch with employees. Employees that work onsite with customer don't always "feel connected" with the company.

Advice to Management

If it doesn't work, get rid of it.
Upper managers should audit middle management, find out how employees feel about their managers.
Remember the little people that do the work, make them feel appreciated and they'll go the extra mile for you.

    Pros

    It was a great place to gain experience right out of college. Benefits are good, especially the tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    Management and BD are not doing their jobs. Despite defense cutbacks, contracts are there to be won. However, the Apopka management decided to invest in facilities while laying people off at the same time. Now overhead is out of control so they can't bid competitively on contracts anymore. They're circling the toilet bowl.

    Disclaimer: I was not laid off.
    Layoffs were ridiculous. They targeted the older employees with the most valuable experience. They spared many incompetent people. Very few managers were affected.

    Advice to Management

    Better find creative ways to reduce overhead, or join the many you already laid off.

    Pros

    Flex time; benefits, even if we keep paying more for them each year; end of year shutdown, the employees (non-management).

    Cons

    Too many layers of management, the majority of whom are unethical, unknowledgable, and unfair. Most get promoted into management because they are friends of another manager, and most failed at their jobs, hence the NGC motto of SCREW UP AND MOVE UP! Discrimination runs rampant . Raises and bonuses are abysmal, unless you are in management or favored by a manager. HR is only there to cover up management's many screw ups. The annual review process is a joke! Very little job satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Step down, we don't need layers on layers of managment. If NGC really wants to increase shareholder value - lose at least 2 layers of management - they are redundant. We have VP's and directors for everything, in addition to 3-4 layers of management. Instead of laying-off employees to increase profit, chop management in 1/2 and use their HUGE annual bonuses/salaries to increase profit. Also, contract out HR so they are not in management's back pocket...HR does not help the employees at all.
