Pros

Home leave is paid by the Company.

Cons

If you rock the boat you will be punished. Forced time on the bench is the way to "teach you a lesson". Very hostile work place. Published Company policies are not followed by middle management. Coverups are also rampant.
Layoffs occur with little or no notice.
Full Perdiem is not paid to employees,rather a small portion, to cover the food element. The accomodation part is retained by the company and a hotel (of lesser value) is provided. No opportunity to find your own hotel. I do not know the legalities of this practice, but seems like its missapropriation of government funds.

Advice to Management

Take a look at the middle management. There are numerous abuses of authority, with favoritism taking precident over performance. Workers have been penalised and lost jobs for "trying" to follow company policies. UXO Techs are a disposable commodity and are not valued, even though they are the profit makers.

    I think management has done a great job. However, it would be great if more briefings on the state of the company could be held, perhaps quarterly?
