    I have been working at Navarro Research and Engineering

    Pros

    As a contractor, Navarro was very easy to do business with. They were very prompt to pay invoices and very supportive in assisting me to accomplish job related objectives.

    Cons

    As a contractor working from my home, I did not know most of the people of the company. It was difficult to receive meaningful feedback about performance or other job related issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be advisable for contractors to receive helpful input in order to assist them in representing the company in a manner that is best for the long-term value of client relationships.

    May be an okay place to work if you are very well insulated from Susanna.

    I have been working at Navarro Research and Engineering full-time

    Pros

    I had flexible hours. $ for $ 401k match up to 6%.

    Cons

    Susanna doesn't listen, assumes everyone is wrong or stupid and tries to intimidate everyone. Lots of good people have left the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people some credit. Treat your team like they are people.

    I have been working at Navarro Research and Engineering

    Pros

    Only 40 hours a week (Department of Energy contract) Laid back,

    Cons

    They hire anyone. Guess that can be a Pro, but horrible attitudes and horrible organization. Work has to be redone because paperwork gets lost...

  5.  

    Employee moral is at a 3-year low and it is going to take a lot more than occasional lip service to motivate your staff.

    Pros

    The health insurance is very reasonable. If you are satisfied with just earning an income, it is a good place to work. If you want to career growth, look elsewhere for employment.

    Cons

    Lack of performance reviews
    No direction to grow
    Lack of leadership in senior management
    Very unfair salary compensation distribution
    No training opportunities for improvement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sit down and listen to your employees. Give your staff more than lip service and it is always a good idea to give some type of performance reviews, especially when you don't have time to individually perform routine assessments.
