    I have been working at Bastion Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can't beat working with good people. There is a genuine caring among the workers.

    Cons

    It's mostly government contracting, so you worry about stability.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you all are doing.

    I worked at Bastion Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good long term contract positions on NASA programs with good job stability. The work is fairly interesting and not overly stressful.

    Cons

    Raises average 3% a year, salaries are low too. You need to be prepared to move because once the contract is up you'll be laid off. This company is nearly indistinguishable from the many nameless faceless small businesses in the area.

    Pros

    I thought that this company had really great benefits, and that is one of the most important things to me.

    Cons

    Like I said before the benefits were great and that was what was most important to me at the time, I really don't have anything to say for cons

    Advice to Management

    N/A

    I worked at Bastion Technologies part-time

    Pros

    Awards people who show initiative, good work ethic, and good technical writers that document the safety assessments and hazard reports. Great customers (NASA, etc) to work with. Friendly, competent, hard working, good people.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to know if management can be trusted or what criteria they use when determining pay raises. Raises are generally cost of living. People are sometimes not given the proper training to do the job because of time constraints.

    Advice to Management

    Give workers more help with writing technical documents. Have a mentoring program. Give employees a chance to be creative and not just stick to forms that may not lend themselves for additional, pertinent information that could improve hazard control rationale.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Bastion Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hands-off management of senior people, very light touch regarding not having overbearing and stupid 'mandatory' training and policies.

    Cons

    Is a 'body shop'; when your contract is over, you are gone.

    Advice to Management

    Do you really still need to supply people only? Develop an in-house expertise and sell that; you'd have employees who weren't always looking for a new job 'just in case'.

    Pros

    Great co-workers and professional environment. Work life balance was excellent.

    Cons

    I received only two reviews in ten years of employment. Compensation is low. Little room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to pay attention to what middle managers are doing.
