    I was a Military Pay Technician

    Military Pay Technician (Former Employee) Cleveland, OH

    ProsThe stability of a government job is hard to beat, and the benefits are very good, including insurance, 401k matching up to 5%, all federal holidays off, and some positions offer teleworking.

    ConsSome of the leadership got there by just not getting fired so some leaders didn't have some of the optimal skill sets that great leaders have. There is also lots of change in leadership between departments so you might have several bosses within the same year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLike what I said above, focus on putting the right people into management and keep them in the same department.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Job with stability but no praise for a job well done.

    Military Pay Technician (Current Employee) Fort Leavenworth, KS

    ProsHours, Schedule, Working with Service members,

    ConsUneven work distribution, too many people do barely anything while a select few do all the work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAccurately appraised your employees. Management too scared to let employees know when they are slacking. Performance appraisals will read the same throughout the office.
