An excellent working environment with committed people

ProsStellar people, committed to their jobs. Always a helping hand. Personally, it was fulfilling knowing that even the most mundane tasks were vital to the mission.

ConsThose that are not current/prior military will experience a steep learning curve in terms of culture and language. But it's not insurmountable.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
