Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Triple Canopy full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Decent Logistics compared to their competition.

Cons

Triple Canopy seems to have a difficult time getting rid of task order / site/ country managers that are either incompetent or corrupt.
Pay & benefits kept getting reduced.
"Good old boy" syndrome.

Advice to Management

Pay a LOT more attention to your lowest tier supervisors.
Don't hire Ugandan street punks as contract guards.
Corporate oversight of country managers and others needs improvement.

    Current Contractor - Guard in Kabul (Afghanistan)

    I have been working at Triple Canopy as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    A steady paycheck when you get in theater eventually.
    On site medical and dental to take care of specific needs.

    Cons

    You get double billed for medical processing at Adderbury.
    The contract is good but the wrong people have been in charge. They lack proper tempering and leadership training.
    Little to no days off. There are guards that have work 100 plus days with no days off.
    Pay is below industry standard.
    There is a major disconnect between corporate headquarters and chain of command on the ground.

    Advice to Management

    SOG's have to be E6 or above or have worked as a contractor for 3 years min. This has not been the case. Next leadership cannot be from the first 3 classes.
