    Pros

    FPMI is a great company. I was a contractor working for the government for about 3 years. Management was great and always assisted with whatever questions or issues I had in a timely manner. Pay was great too.

    Cons

    Insurance was kind of high.

    I worked at FPMI (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None. No permanent office, no training, constant inter and intradepartmental bullying. HR lied about pay and status. One day I was a full-time employee eligible for insurance, and then they reversed themselves. They were so petty, they even sent my last paycheck to the wrong city.

    Cons

    Vindictive boss who hated being shown up by an underling doing a decent job. And maybe caution one of the titular heads the staff is not part of his private harem.

    Advice to Management

    Read your books on managing employees in the 21st century and quit treating people as if you are running a Dickensonian Debtor's Prison.

    I have been working at FPMI full-time

    Pros

    Front line employees work hard and do the best they can under the circumstances. Pay is the only reason to work at this company.

    Cons

    Poor leadership and overall lack of direction. Poor office culture. overall lack of institutional control by executive leadership. Once a good company is now a joke in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as your greatest assets rather than expendable commodities. Thinking before you make decisions might be a good idea.

    Pros

    FPMI offers a decent salary for hours worked. The pay is always on time once all necessary paperwork is received and good the company offers a good benefits package.

    Cons

    Assignments were conducive with my qualifications and experience, which made the job easy.

    Advice to Management

    Since my last contract assignment with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center ended on August 30, 2013, I am available for another job opportunity.

    Pros

    Training operations staff in Huntsville.

    Cons

    LIke many companies today, there is not a history of employment stability; layoffs are always just around the corner. Also, FPMI has had a history of senior leaders whose trustworthiness is suspect.

    Advice to Management

    Quit working your staff to death! Hire more people, even if that means cutting your own salaries some.

    Pros

    New Management team embracing growth and encouraging employees. Employee recognition for a job well done. Great benefits, and wonderful people to work with. This is one of the best teams I've ever had the privilege to work with.

    Cons

    Benefits are a bit pricey. Understand the whole country is facing the same problem, but wish the costs were less.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. You guys are a breath of fresh air!

    Pros

    Prior senior management had created a good culture where you wanted to go to work each day.

    Cons

    The senior management team changes frequently at the request of the board. The current management has created a poor, hostile work environment. They continually bad mouth the prior senior management to employees and customers. Went from a great environment to a poor one in a short period of time. Communication is poor although it is being touted that communications have been improved. Unfortunately, the company is not highly regarded any more. For a company who is in the HR arena, it is sad at how poorly information was provided regarding benefits upon departure. I would not recommend anyone to work for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating people with respect and stop hiding from your employees. Stick with the old adage - "if you have nothing good to say, say nothing at all." The bad mouthing of past management makes you look bad and makes people not want to deal with you.
