I worked at IAP Worldwide Services as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

IAP provided a week of training prior to deploying us to our assignment locations in Afghanistan. The office that conducted the training was small and the staff were accessible. The staff responded promptly to questions, phone calls and emails.

Cons

Although there was a site manager at the site, he was not actively involved in managing our group. In fact, the home office and the site manager were "hands off" and did not appoint any specific person to be the leader of our group. This led to infighting and power struggles in our group. The R and R's were not as good as the folks that were working on the LOGCAP IV program, but I assume IAP had to bid low for the contract that we were working on. Therefore, our R and R's were not as good.

Advice to Management

There needed to be defined roles and a manager of our group should have been established by the corporate offices prior to sending our group to the field.
