    I have been working at NAWC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Government employees receive the LA locality pay, which is awesome. Benefits, health insurance, etc is nice.

    Cons

    * Middle of nowhere. That locality bonus? It gets destroyed when you need to go to the city for everything. * Work environment is awful. Employees are loud, gossiping, and it feels like some never left high school. * The work is mundane and repetitive. Please enjoy the templated experience. * Management will ask a lot of the people who pull their weight and will gladly run those people into the ground. *... Extremely linear career path.

    Advice to Management

    * Take some actual business courses and learn how to manage people. * Pay employees to skill and educational background, not to try and offend the sensibilities of the less educated. * Support the mission and not yourselves.
