    "Best experience in my entire career"

    I worked at Barrios Technology (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Barrios values people and their contributions. Just that single statement alone sets them apart from every other place I've worked. If they make you an offer, take it, even if the pay is not competitive. Other places may pay more, but they want a pound of flesh and will crush your spirit over time. Barrios treats people with dignity and respect.

    Cons

    The only con was that the nature of the business (aerospace) was contract dependent.

    Pros

    Company culture is very good.

    Cons

    Like many other NASA contractors, your longevity highly depends on the awarding of NASA Contracts and other contractors. You may keep the job, but may be with a different company when/if contract expires.

    Smaller companies disadvantages, doesn't have the deep pockets of a larger company

    Pros

    Sandy really cares about her employee's and makes sure she takes care of them with her benefit package and minimizes yearly increases in cost.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons. They are a great company and still offer the ability to bank comp time as needed

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Barrios Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Every company proclaims something to the effect that "employees are our most valuable resource". Sadly, for most companies this is pure rubbish. Barrios Tech is The Real Deal when it comes to truly treating the employee as MVPs. Whenever I went to HR for anything--even asking simple questions--they always went the extra mile to make sure I was fully taken care of. Also, the chance to "work your way up"--the buzzword is Upward Mobility--is spot-on with this company. In 2 words: Work Here!

    Cons

    Not enough beer at the bi-annual company party (just kidding--they always had plenty o' hamburgers, hot dogs, and brew!)

    Advice to Management

    1) Keep up the good work. 2) Stay small--this is what keeps you awesome and agile.

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

    Pros

    Small company allows workers easy access to upper management and executives. Flex and comp time opportunities. Family oriented and encourages work/life balance.

    Cons

    High deductible medical insurance. Being a small business puts Barrios somewhat at the mercy of its larger contractor partners, such as Jacobs and USA. Career development opportunities are somewhat limited due to small company size.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look for ways to grow the company while keeping the family/personal life focus.

    Pros

    Barrios takes excellent care of its employees. This is a great company to work for. HR is easy to work with and have taken care of all my family needs. The lower level management is understanding, flexible, and show a true interest in the employees.

    Cons

    Since this company is a small contractor for NASA JSC, there is not a great amount of upward mobility or career progression.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Take care of your employees.
