    Company with great potential but terrible management with no accountability.

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    McMinnville, OR

    ProsNew and young employees are given great opportunities in challenging projects, providing tremendous experience a knowledge. The field staff worked hard and have a tremendous sense of camaraderie. Supporting important missions for the US Government.

    ConsTerrible leadership and lack of management accountability. The blame game was common and many of the contracts were never fulfilled or given the resources they needed to be successful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand your business and your customer. Listen to your employees and take some ownership in both the good and the bad.

    Worst company I've ever known

    Information Technology (Former Employee)
    McMinnville, OR

    ProsMost of the employees were good people

    ConsTyrannical CEO Delford Smith. Almost Psychotic with the expectations an demands he would yell (or have his #2 cronie yell). Would humiliate and abuse employees that didn't do the impossible for him. Personally saw 2 people die in my short time there from obvious job stress and abuse (one had a coronary, the other committed suicide). He is an "old school" "Mad men" type of relic living in the past (requires ties and suits, doesn't use a computer, gives preference to the pretty ladies, etc.) His bizarre business antics like spending to have those ridiculous museums built, and running up HUGE debts this poor company could never repay have driven the company into the ground. I believe that when he dies there will be MANY McMinnville residents dancing on his grave. He was ruthless, cold, hated people, and above all was GREEDY and materialistic.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis company is beyond help and has claimed bankruptcy because of it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Awful organization

    Helicopter Pilot (Current Employee)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Company that demanded much and rewarded little while stabbing good people in the back and kicking them out the door!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    McMinnville, OR

    ProsGreat co-workers, location, benefits when they were matched

    ConsIncompetent Management, Bankrupt, Micro-Management and elusive management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWorked for a couple years there and in my opinion all management had no backbone. They were too scared to speak up for anybody as they felt they'd get their job hatched. As a Manager, your job is to manage and not have favorites and once in a while tell people that there hard work is noticed.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
