Very Positive

Military Officer (Current Employee)

I have been working at USG

ProsReason for joining was duty to country and the chance to "give something back". That being said, USG provides opportunities to learn skillsets for life, travel, etc.

ConsInflexibility of bureacratic environment; promotion is a matter of "time in grade" vice recognizing someone for individual merit. Trying to staff a new idea or initiative can be like trying to turn a large ship on a dime. Not an easy feet.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower the employees to make decisions at the lower level. Many good ideas have died an early death as the weight of the bureaucratic process was difficult to overcome.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
