    Former Employee - F-22 Low Observable Coater in Layton, UT

    I worked at MacB full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pay, interview process, hiring existing workers when contract was initially awarded to the new company. Gift card for a Christmas bonus, paid vacation. Good benefit, take care of employees during family emergencies.

    Cons

    Training, pay raises, supervisor availability, promotion opportunity/selection process. My coworker was promoted when a supervisor was fired just to fill a spot. Seemed to be no consideration to who had more seniority/ deserved it or was more qualified. Instead possibly because of age or being a good ole boy, he was promoted for no valid reason, missed work frequently and was overwhelmed and slacked on his additional duties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with employees more often.

    I have been working at MacB as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    -A pay check
    -Ability to meet and befriend other contracting companies or Federal employees
    -Able to come in with LITTLE experience (?)
    -little supervision

    Cons

    Only been with the company for a little over a week and already seeing some issues.

    1) Company was JUST awarded their contract. They hired 4 brand new folks. They put the first project down in front of us and told us to make it happen. Our team was not given but one POC who is supposed to help with everything (but really doesn't have much of a clue), no tools, and no real guidance as to how to get the project completed. To top it off, new contracts are VERY cut throat. Anyone who can help you has already been told they're not allowed.

    2) Supervisor, recruiters, HR folks....they're all brand new also.

    3) Never see project lead or supervisors. Occasionally receive emails, but no face to face contact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to help new folks out. Don't throw them into the wolves without making sure they have everything they need...especially the basics like tools, PCs and POCs.

    It was a job with fair pay but no room to grow without leaving the state.

    I worked at MacB full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    For the most part the people that I worked along side of were great. 8-5 job, if you left at 6P you were the last one out the door.

    Cons

    Don't expect any direction from management or supervisors. At best they will give you a gray answer so that nothing can come back to them. The amount of animosity between supervisors is ridiculous. Don't expect them to build teams. I listened to my department head bad mouth every person that had previously worked in that department that was no longer there. Very unprofessional.

    I worked at MacB full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I had a great supervisor, the upper management was wonderful as well. The compensation was not only enough to live on but enough to save as well. The benefits were great and they were always very understanding about time zones/reporting of hours when we had to travel internationally.

    Cons

    The only drawback was the location... Tyndall AFB in Panama City, FL. if you are a fan of the East Coast or a Florida resident, you would be perfectly happy but for a San Francisco girl it was like the dark side of the Moon.

    Pros

    Solid company good track record

    Cons

    Sight supervisor in my experience was not a manager and stated that he was a dictator and that was his method. When a new employee was hired and put in a position as a supervisor and became very verbal and disrespectful to those under her the management did nothing to curb the issue.
