    Pros

    They pay well and have a fair amount of schedule flexibility. They seem to hire people (I am speaking of non-managers here) that are competent in their individual fields.

    Cons

    If you aren't an engineer, you don't exist. That's the only type of person they are really interested in. There's far too much involvement on the government side with what goes on in the company. Not enough separation between the two.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider hiring managers who actually have some people skills. Out of the 3 managers I had, one of them was personable, approachable, and seemed minimally interested in his people. The other two were just plain HORRIBLE and frankly I can't believe the company would promote the likes of them. One in particular works in Charleston SC and she is the WORST OF THE WORST. Backstabbing, gossipping, snooping in employee's private off-site business, weird favoritism, complete lack of interest in employee growth. I get chills just thinking about it.
