    Pros

    The job security is great! Pay advancements are good within the first few years of employment and the benni's are ok as well.

    Cons

    The information given to you upon interview and before working is poor. I was told I would be working in planning and after I started working and took the bonus that I had no chance of working in planning. I feel lied to. The communication was also terrible. they gave you all the infomation at the interview and got you in the door, but once you were in the door they failed miserably. I felt like I was fed to the wolves. No desk, no computer and to be frank work that can be done by technicians.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more open to the new employees and don't treat them like they are just another number to add to the books.

    Pros

    PSNS, as with other government jobs, is fantastic for worker support and benefits. I haven't had an issue with taking time off. Also, the health & retirement benefits are more than competitive with industry. The work environment is friendly and most co-workers have a genuine desire to help each other out.

    Cons

    The pay structure is highly rigid at PSNS. It follows the government General Schedule (GS) system which is non-performance based. The system also limits pay. I know senior workers who are capped and have only received cost of living adjustments for the last 10 years! The career advancement opportunities vary greatly depending on where you work. Also, there is very low turnover which reduces career advancement opportunities for younger workers.

    Advice to Management

    I'm satisfied with my senior management.
