Great place to work in the government sector; it's one of those opportunities you could work long term and retire. Work hours are set by your command and benefits are great; lots of options to save for your retirement. All holidays generally get an additional day off like the active duty. Lots of flexibility on various HR supporting tasks like vacation and sick leave.
Depending on what command you are assigned you can have good and bad leadership. There are locations where your bosses are completely detached from what is going on day to day, where it could be the complete opposite and it's all your command does is work. Work-life balance can be difficult depending on who and where you are in the organizational structure.
Employee orientation could be as long as a year out to schedule in some organizations.
Advice to Management
Send your people to their orientation immediately.

Great pay, security, and benefits
0 chance of advancement if you are not willing to degrade yourself to sucking up. If you aren't an engineer by education good luck ever getting promoted no matter what other skills you have.
Advice to Management
Maybe engineers aren't the best money managers, and that is why WSMR runs in th ered tens of millions of dollars every year.

Great values and great work environment! At my shop, it's one of the few jobs where you actually want to come to work everyday because you enjoy it so much. The work is fun and challenging and the people I work with are like family.
There's no real way to weed out the individuals that don't contribute the same effort as everyone else to the team. But it does offer a really dynamic team environment and as long as I'm doing my work, my management is happy, which makes me happy.
