Pros

Great People, friendly, supportive
Nice Work Enviroment
Smart, ambitious engineers

Cons

Lack of Leadership in IE Division
Lack of Controls (financial and contracts) which lead to poor ethical conduct and a potential (read potential) for fraudulent waste and practices
Way too much emphasis on "sold time" billablity to Govt., which leads to engineers & project managers scrambling for billable work and doing other tasks if there is no technical work to do and bill customers.
Lots of duplication in legal and contracts areas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your act together in the Govt contracts arena (IE Division). CEO has head in the sand as do other leadership staff.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    good pay and lots of hours if wanted. Lots of rotating shift work but easy work usually. 7 days off every 4 weeks.

    Cons

    Good ole boy network when it comes to getting hired and promoted. Rotating shift work and flip flopping from days to nights. Lots of construction projects so you work yourself out of a job and no guarantee they will transfer you when done.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
