    I have been working at COLSA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Comp time, management leaves us alone to do our jobs, management is there when we need them, outstanding team of professionals to work with flex hours.

    Cons

    The contract renewal coming due in March 2018 which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. There's no guarantee that we will still work for Colsa after it happens and most likely we will be working for a sub with a pay cut.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you're doing. I know the contract matters are beyond your control to an extent. This is the best management team I've worked for in a very long time.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at COLSA (Colorado Springs, CO) in February 2017.

    Interview

    After I applied online, I was emailed on a Tuesday for an interview on Thursday. I came in and had what seemed like a great interview. They said they were going to do a cursory check on my clearance and get back with me in a couple business days. I was even given a tentative start date of March 16th. I never heard from anyone again. I'd never had that happen before.
