Pros

Can work up to 20+ weeks a year and make about $40k.
Admin support for part-timers is great.
Can get positions working closely with soldiers.
Helps keep abreast of current doctrine.

Cons

12 hour shifts once an exercise starts. Can get fairly boring, depending on the type of work cell you're in, because so many aspects of exercises these days are script-driven rather than simulation driven. Also, the number of exercises, and the number of contractors req'd to run them, has diminished greatly in 2010. I'll be lucky to work 10 weeks this CY, and that's better than most.

Advice to Management

Spend more effort on continuing education/professional development of the part-time force.

    Pros

    Great Employees and a management staff that cares about thier employees. Constant challenges for all employees. Great pay and benefits. If you work hard, you will be recognized and rewarded. i have not seen an employee who deserved a good raise go without one.

    Cons

    Sometimes we work long hours. the defence and aerospace industry has a lot of people retiring and the work load can seem unmanagable

    Advice to Management

    Diversify in the public sector

    Pros

    A large company with plenty of opportunities nationwide. Plenty of different type of engineering fields available & lots of opportunities in different engineering applications.

    Cons

    ES promotions to higher engineering bands (5+) are based on academic achievements like education level (MS, PhD), number of white papers written & expertise in a given field as opposed to how well you do your job compared to your peers.

    Advice to Management

    NGES should look to other NG sectors (like AS) and compare promotion criteria. Higher level promotions should not be limited to those with academic achievements, but also include those who excel in their particular job & exceed the expectations of their particular band.
