    I worked at JT3

    Pros

    great benefit package, fosters off duty education and have a fantastic apprenticeship program for the electricians. However anyone can utilize tuition re-reimbursement.

    Cons

    Long hours and family life isn't in the company plans. Be prepared for long hours and some of the time you're not going to get paid for.

    I have been working at JT3 as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Very unique internship. Great compensation.

    Cons

    Difficult hours. Work could have been more organized for interns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend the experience if technical management better organize the workload for interns in the future.

    Pros

    It's hard to beat the missions we currently support. You definitely feel like you have accomplished something at the end of each day. Work environment is friendly and you meet a lot of great people.

    Cons

    Work hours tend to create a lot of stress at home. It's difficult to maintain a healthy work/life balance. Pay is low for job responsibilities and experience level compared to other defense contractors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing I can think of yet.

    I have been working at JT3 full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    No matter how much you screw up, or how little you do, it doesn't matter. Pretty much only care if you are on time and charge 40 hours per week. If you keep your head down and don't try to get noticed, you can coast for an entire career. Good benefits. If you want a job where you can do next to nothing for long hours, this is the company for you. There are some good people to work with, just not so much in management. A lot of people are now leaving the company, so there will be lots of available jobs.

    Cons

    Sexual harassment and racial slurs rampant. Long hours. No clear career path. Very little mobility. Dishonest and incompetent management. Sacrificing your family for the job is expected. If you try hard you are penalized by management, they don't like people standing out or solving problems. High award fee score due to company management always doing what customer asks, even if illegal or immoral, which security hides from the world. Most company decisions made at a bar. Makes one feel bad that the whole operation is such a waste of taxpayer dollars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to stop putting ex-military in management positions, it looks like the military can only produce toxic leaders who can't function well with others. Need a backbone to be able to say no to the customer when they ask for something that is illegal or immoral, or would be bad for operations, or bad for employee morale. Need to understand that perception really isn't reality, and that if you build too high of an expectation, and don't deliver, it might be worse in the end. At some point the whole house of cards will fall.

    I have been working at JT3 full-time

    Pros

    Very low-stress job for the most part. Compensation is among the best if not the best in Vegas, very "what you see is what you get" for the most part. Generous benefits, especially with vacation the longer you work. There is a company culture but that culture is very relaxed. If you get the right supervisor and team, the place is wonderful. Decent opportunities even on a downturn.

    Cons

    Management is very hit/miss. Work/life balance is hit/miss as well. If you get a team that doesn't like you, it can be a pain at times. Slight disconnect between senior management and the engineers/technicians.

    Pros

    JT3 takes care of their employees. They offer reasonal cost benefits such as medical, dental, and vision; 100 percent tuition for higher education; robust retirement option; and monetary incentives for employees to live a healthy life style. They also are very generous when it comes to paying employees for their suggestions to make to the quality of life better for all employees and the corporation as a whole.

    Cons

    The corporation is geographically limited at the moment with duty locations only in Nevada, California, and Utah.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recommend utilizing a buddy system for mentoring newly hired personnel and employees seeking upward mobility.
