      I worked at AMSEC part-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Some flexibility in work scheduling. Interesting projects - while they lasted.

      Cons

      Very few engineering opportunities. Pay rate much lower than competition. No interest in training employees or recruitment / grooming for advanced internal opportunities. Severe contraction, company- and industry-wide.

      Advice to Management

      Your employees and their skills sets are your Company's future. Encourage and support their improvement and advancement.

Current ratio is 23 versus 36 total paid days off per year. Add monetary incentives to milestones (5, 10, 15, 20 years). Hard to keep employees when many GS positions are available in fleet concentration areas. Non-exempt:...
