    Pros

    The CEO seems to be the only one concerned about major issues such as workplace harassment and sexism, but only after you are forced to contact him directly.

    Cons

    Inept management, toxic work environment, endless "double-standards", racism, and sexism, just to name a few... And don't bother going to the main HRO department, as they only listen to what local management tells them and then refuses to take your calls. This company in general regards it's employees the same as toilet paper, easily discarded and replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are a valuable asset, and they provide the backbone of your company, so when they are mistreated, they quit and move on. Although it seems they are too easily replaceable, eventually this will catch up to you and your bottom-line.

    Pros

    Good branding (company tshirts; stickers)
    Competitive pay
    Many experienced employees

    Cons

    Poor management
    No regard for employees. They are a disposable asset and will be terminated with little regard to due process.
    Toxic work environment

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your greatest asset. Seriously. By throwing away talent in pursuit of short-term gain, you send your best off to work for your competitors.

    Pros

    It is the SOLE contractor currently operating the Robins AFB type IIA Precision Measurement Equipment Laboratory (PMEL). As a PMEL technician, you get to work in your preferred / selected vocation in your preferred / selected geographic location.

    Cons

    As the SOLE contractor currently operating the Robins AFB type IIA Precision Measurement Equipment Laboratory (PMEL), a PMEL technician has ZERO choice as to the contractor (your employer) you will be working for (the contractor is selected by the USAF), nor do you have a voice in operations. It is truly a "take it or leave it" scenario. One day you may be working for a "good" company, the next day - when a new contract is set - you may be working for someone with a worse attitude. There is also a lot of leeway contractors have to ensure that they "comply" with the Service Contract Act, and they play lots of games, mostly the kind profitable for them.

    Advice to Management

    Include the employees in the management process, they have a lot of good ideas!; Listen to them!

    Pros

    Salary is good if you can put up with the management.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. Company does not care about its personnel. No upward mobility.

  9. Good company, but very cliquish at management level (in Kuwait)

    Pros

    The majority the people are professional and hard working. The compensation and benefits are good to very good considering the working hours and location.

    Cons

    In Kuwait, if you're not one of the site manager's favorites, you'll be excluded from any chance at advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate oversight could be improved. Maybe a sort of anonymous online survey or something to that effect would give you a better idea about employees concerns.
