    I have been working at Navstar (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management is great. The CEO is very involved in business development and growing the company which benefits all employees. She is really easy to get along with and super friendly. Another pro is the company offers a great work/life balance and offers excellent benefits. I have enjoyed my time at Navstar thus far and am excited to be a part of such an amazing team!

    Cons

    The company is still growing!

    I worked at Navstar full-time

    Pros

    Prime on some of their contracts. Good Contracts/Positions. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Small company with lots of room for improvement. The performance review process is a joke. A reply from management can take a long time/even for vacation approvals.

    Advice to Management

    A more professional approach is required to retain your high level employees looking to grow.

    I have been working at Navstar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coming from a large company to a small one, I was concerned about the risk of lack of opportunities. Luckily, that hasn't been the case. The company has a family feel to it, and as long as you're putting in your best effort, you WILL get recognized. The benefits themselves are good, and a step above most of the other competitors out there. Management will listen to employee suggestions on changing corporate policies, or new business ideas.

    Cons

    As I said, it's a small company; there's nowhere to hide if you're not pulling your weight on your job. Summer events have been lackluster, when they used to be a great amount of fun for the employees and their families.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    I have been working at Navstar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employees are not just a number at Navstar. Having worked for some of the larger prime companies I got lost in the shuffle. At Navstar the management team listened to me and let me be a part of the growth. There is plenty of opportunity for redeployment and room for advancement.

    Cons

    Navstar is a smaller company but we are growing.

    Pros

    The management team is very knowledgeable and has taken Navstar to new heights over the last year; the company continues to grow even through difficult economic times and government shutdowns. Employees are appreciated and respected; competitive salary; awesome benefits; management focuses on employee satisfaction and retention.

    Cons

    Many of us work in different locations so it's difficult to have much interaction with other Navstar employees except at company functions and events.

    Advice to Management

    Management should get more input from employees for events like the summer picnic. If events are designed for employees then they need to be focused more on employee preferences i.e.the summer picnic shouldn't be held when everyone is getting their kids ready to go back to school.

    I have been working at Navstar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    By far one of the best staffing companies out there. I've been there now for a few years and can easily say that the people who work in cooperate and out at customer sites are some of the best folks around. Their recruiting team is always on-top of keeping their employees up to date with new positions within the company and they are always there to help out with any needs or issues that their employees may have. They definitely have industry knowledge as to where the customer is heading with technology, budget, re-competes, which puts me at ease with having job security. Company culture is huge, very family oriented (which is nice for somebody that has kids, like me), decent amount of company events to attend if you want to get to know some other folks outside of your cube that work for the company.

    Cons

    Did some transitioning with Paychex, and contracts which wasn't easy but has smoothed out much better now.

    Advice to Management

    Great Job and just don't loose focus of your employees as you grow more and more.
