Pros

NGC as a company might be ok, not this location

Cons

too many to list - good old boys network is very powerful- professional growth is restircted by this group who is not competent to lead 21 st century work force.

Advice to Management

Dismantle myopic out of touch, 7th centrury mind set good old boys network. These middle managers have no competence, and subsequently are good at sabotaging efficient ideas which could result in significant savings of tax payers money

    Pros

    9/80 work life balance is great

    Cons

    you only get raises once a year, almost regardless of how good a job you do
    a lot of the people who are working there for years and years are incompetent, but get paid way more than they should, and young people who work really hard don't get the credit

    Advice to Management

    performance based appraisal - give us credit for the work we do

    Pros

    1. Good reputation in general. Mostly because of high visibility of federal and defense contracting accomplishments.
    2. Travel was integral part of my job, and travel accounting was fairly efficient and timely.
    3. Excellent technology applied internally to timekeeping, accounting, information access, etc.

    Cons

    1. My position and telework arrangement allowed me a lot of flexibility in how I used my time, but was poorly understood and not supported by senior staff.
    2. Time commitments are extreme with little or no consideration of personal/ family commitments, and absolutely NO appreciation for the sacrifices.
    3. Little or no information sharing, collaborative approach to problem solving, etc.
    4. Extremely viscious competition within the organization for prestige and advancement, very poor internal culture that rewards sycophants and diminishes coordination and collaboration.
    5. Very POOR professional development program. Although a very visible part of annual review processes, no support for accomplishing the goals outlined in the review plan. In fact, generally next evel management placed more impediments to acchieving the goals than options/ support for accomplishing them.

    In general, not the policies of the company, just the result of poor mid and mid-upper level management.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to position promotions and management reviews. Reward good management and establish a better culture supporting personal and professional development. Invest some money back into the organization..
