Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Huntsville, AL

Pros

Paid overtime (comp time). 4% employer match in 401k, usually 4-5% additional discretionary contribution for a total of 8-9%.

Work is usually pretty steady.

Cons

Alabama?

Management learns basic skills on the job, predictable results. Not professionally trained/certified in management (some exceptions). Typical Huntsville AL company in that way.

Projects vary, sometimes boring.

    I worked at COLSA full-time

    Pros

    One of the larger contractors in Tampa with plenty of linguist positions (although they mostly only hire native speakers. They do hire DLI grads/study abroad grads, but language testing is harder than the DLPT or ILR). Chances to work weekends/nights to make extra money.

    Cons

    Teams tend to be over zealous and will ask you to come in on nights and weekends with very little notice or to "monitor a developing situation" from home on the weekend.

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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, leadership, culture with effective processes and procedures in place, people are respectful of one another and everyone works together.

    Cons

    Have not experienced any downsides so far...I've been employed here for about one year and COLSA by far exceeds previous employers. Did not know a lot about COLSA prior to employment but was very impressed during the interview process and from that initial interview, I knew this was a place I wanted to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!!
