    Pros

    good co workers, good work life balance

    Cons

    Was told I could earn pay raises as part of the review process. The company that owns Wyle is only worried about the bottom line not allowing employees to advance in pay. The company has not given out pay raises for 3 years. (Whcih I had found out after getting hired) When we did get one this year it was a meager 1.6%, that won't even cover the cost of living. CAS group usually had better benefits which helped offset the wages offered. The benefits are rapidly becoming much less. (Don't know about other business units)

    Pros

    There is plenty of work to go around. You get to work closely with other groups within the project. This provides a chance to better understand all of the aspects of your project and get some insight of things you may not have studied before.

    Cons

    There is a lot of travelling. The benefits were second to none 5 years ago, but now are average at best.

    It is more of a job than a career. Promotions are not normal and neither are pay raises besides the required pay raise for inflation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Morale is a very important key to success in a company. It is easy to overlook employees who are hard at work in the background, but it is the responsibility of upward management to help these background heroes to believe that they are a key part to the company and that they are needed.

    Company is focused on its internal politics rather than on serving the government customer.

    I worked at Wyle

    Pros

    Wyle was a great company to work for. We exceeded customer expectations every day. Our pricing is higher than our major competition, but we delivered quality service. I worked for the Wyle Test Lab for 7 years, glad I did and very proud supporting many successful programs. The management team has solid expertise in what we did and they do not overlook an employees hard work and dedication. I LOVE Wyle. The test lab division was acquired by our competitor NTS, and I decided to resign.

    Cons

    I think Wyle made a mistake letting go of their test lab.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and continue to GROW..

    Pros

    Many great people and interesting work

    Cons

    Watch your back! If you are not a favorite, you quickly become a target. Very questionable practices and decisions that benefit the "in crowd."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time learning and identifying the true contributors and stop allowing favorites to hide behind the talents of others. Extend the same opportunities to all. It is past time to get serious about values and ethics and past time to address behaviors...in other words, walk the talk!!

    I have been working at Wyle as a contractor

    Pros

    I beleive the company itself may be an excellent company to work for. The benefits are good and those in senior management seem to be understanding and willing to go to bat for their employees.

    Cons

    Lower level management is undereducated, non-people management material, and not knowledgeable in government operation. Promotion is based upon relationships, raises are minimal to none, the level of management is unclear, lack of respect from management and management staff, more time is spent attending to company issues, concerns, and questions rather than on the government work which employees are paid and expected to do. And the list goes on...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire lower level managers who are more educated, knowledgebale, and experienced that their employees.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Some challenging work which kept me interested and motivated.

    Cons

    I had 3 managers in 12 months probably not the norm but from my perspective not good.
    Pay raise is meager to none, not even cost of living and when you do get one it is not even keeping up with inflation. That is going backwards in my book

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you say you are going to do and follow through. Lip service is no service at all
