    Pros

    Work/life balance is strong. Front line maintenance employees are dedicated and work hard to meet the needs of military families.

    Cons

    Low pay. Front line techs and admins are paid $2-5 less than they should be in any market. Low pay leads to high turnover. Techs don't have basic materials to complete jobs. Inventory management is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Show you value front line employees by increasing wages. Stock warehouses to complete needed maintenance at military bases.
