      Pros

      Great company and great people. Good pay for instructors.

      Cons

      Work can be really slow and being a part time or casual, you won’t get much work. Does not pay travel expenses unless really busy. Gives meal card for on site chow hall instead of receiving per diem.

      Pros

      okay-ish pay refused to rebid, after promising employees they would-so getting a new company is a pro

      Cons

      functional sections of the company do not function, ie. hr doesnt know how the health plan works, or who to talk to about it; finance paid some people every 2 weeks, others bi monthly, and just stopped paying and took money back without notice to 'fix the problem', also took pto with no notice; security for passing clearances etc is not proactive, badges at buildings get turned off, sometimes for multiple days-even weeks, losing work time; recruiters do not understand the job they are recruiting for, and have been known to call current employees in a seat, to offer them a job in that seat; pms not trustworthy, threaten to fire reserve and guard employees for carrying out military obligations, left key parts of job out until several weeks after employment started, ie. the billet is moving to germany, pm actively fought against employees going tdy

      Pros

      Honestly, at least I have a paycheck, but this place is really taking a dive and it's been coming for a while. If there's any good reason why, it's hasn't been communicated from the top down, hence the reason all the complaints you see against management...but they're not the ones being cut or affected by diminished staff and increased work load! All I know is Moyock location is a shell of what it used to be.

      Cons

      Terrible morale, no upward advancement, no pay raises for several years, increased workload with less people, evaluations are overridden by Reston, VA who have nothing to do with operations down here yet make decisions on paper. Chow hall quality is down and price is up.
