    Pros

    Good benefits, the work is enjoyable and rewarding and the people that work there are great. The work changes on a daily basis.

    Cons

    The hours can be very long. There are times when it is a real struggle to get a raise even if it is deserved. This may be due to contract negotiations, but it isn't fun for those not getting their money.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to keep your people happy in spite of trying to look good for a contract renewal. If you fail at this and lose your quality people, you won't have much left to give to the customer.

    Pros

    Descent pay. Health benefits good for a contracting company.

    Cons

    Large gap between middle management and the workers. No consistent schedule if you work in the field. "If you don't like it you can leave" attitude. Forget about trying to advance quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to connect with the troops. Morale was really low when I was there and it seemed like management didn't care

    Pros

    The manager is hands-off, which is also a con. The company, upon acquisition of our program, was willing to provide reasonable benefits and pay and leave based on years of service.

    Cons

    Limited management knowledge of what we do. Communication lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Employees can help you.

    Pros

    -Decent pay when compared to others in the same positon with other companies.
    -Good Benefits even though the prices have been slowly increasing.
    -Great work experience and you feel like you are actually contributing to nation.
    -Free food every day of the week.

    Cons

    You will be working loooong hours everyday so you can almost expect your personal life to fall apart around you. You will most likely work these long hours in remote locations also so be prepared for bad conditions. Most of the people that you work will have little to no social skills. The work itself can be fulfilling, but a lot of it can not be applied outside of this particular company.

    Advice to Management

    Create a system where employees can actually grow. The raises and promotions have been very sub-par for the past few years, and employees are constantly being strung along to "hang in there" as if things will get better soon. The fact is, it hasn't gotten better and this kills employee morale.

    Good pay, but fluctuating hours can make having a normal life difficult.

    Pros

    Good pay and good job security. Immediate supervisors are good at trying to make life better.

    Cons

    Hours fluctuate making a normal life difficult. No career plans. To many donated hours.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to minimize donated hours or get us paid for them. Develop and follow career plans with individuals.

    Pros

    As a Programmer with this company I can say that they are very forward thinking, they value their employees, and they have a very important mission providing support to DoD at Edwards AFB, Nellis AFB, and Hill AFB.

    Cons

    Some employees seem to hang around for decades without progressing which makes it difficult to move up. As a new employee I found myself having to mentor many unmotivated people that had been in their jobs for too long.

    Advice to Management

    Keep people moving around. Find those areas where there is stagnation and try to shake things up from time to time. It will keep your... "less-good" employees from negatively influencing your organization and allow your talented up-and-comers to shine.

    Pros

    Pay is fairly decent compared to other local companies if you're not willing to leave state for work. Almost impossible to get fired. They literally pay people to sit on their butts and do nothing. Just don't violate any security rules or date/be friend with terrorists.

    Cons

    The job is not that exciting. You wait for what seems like an eternity sitting in a holding cell while you wait for a clearance. Once you get to work, the pay off only seems cool because anything is better than watching paint dry. After months of unpaid "alternate transport" the decent pay doesn't feel so decent anymore.


  9. Good company to work for.

    Excellent benefits and personal time off.

    Cons

    Varying work schedule, drive time


  10. The pay is just ok. Average in what they DON'T pay it makes it sub par wages.

    Pros

    You get to reinvent the wheel every day.

    Cons

    Draconian work and wage rules.

    Advice to Management

    The good old boy style of management has to go!

    Pros

    Interesting, stimulating, and challenging work.

    Cons

    Unprofessional, immature, high-school work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a new HR person. Not professional and makes friends with the employees and hangs out with them outside of work. Also has a Facebook account and adds employees to it.
