    Pros

    flexible schedule and teleworking. Not a lot of pressure. Lots of time off and ways to earn more. Helpful people.

    Cons

    Lower end of engineer pay scale for the region. Lots of federal red tape to get projects of ground floor.

    Advice to Management

    I do not have any advice for management other than to try to find ways to enable the employees to get there work done in a quick streamlined fashion
