Pros

A well established company with strong, long term ties to the Department of Defense. Benefits and pay scale are fair and a steady 40 hour work week is a plus. The Union appears to have a good working relationship with management, which is rare in today's business environment.

Cons

Favoritism and unfair labor practices plague lower management (front line supervisors). Overtime, work assignments and job performance reviews are too often based on personal relationships. Retaliation against employees who complain is commonplace. Management seems unwilling or unable to mitigate this problem. The atmosphere leads to low morale, and reduced productivity.

Advice to Management

You have a good company. You need to make it great. The current job market is flooded with talented people that would leap at an opportunity to work here. Take a hard line against corruption and unfair labor practices within, and have the courage to identify those responsible, and show them the door.
