    I have been working at Holloman full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Holloman has work all over the place. The superintendent, welding boss, general foreman, and safety men are motivating. I enjoy working for them. They keep good morale and do extra to help us tough out the heat.

    Cons

    Sometimes we have to work on Sunday if work is cancelled due to weather. The weather is overbearingly hot at times, but I haven't had a negative experience with the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Working six twelves is tough on the body. Six tens would be better.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, competitive pay, half day Friday, small firm, decent benefits

    Cons

    No 401k match, poorly managed, no communication, 2 weeks of vacation

    Advice to Management

    What a disaster for the engineering portion of this business!!! The engineering side is poorly managed and simply want to bring in their "buddies". Culture change is good, but simply not having a valid reason to get rid of people just lowers morale and credibility. There is no ownership, no accountability, and absolutely NO communication. You have no idea on how the company is doing, what their vision is, prospective projects, key customers, key internal personnel, lessons learned from previous projects. It's all a mystery along with their standards! These do not exsist, while relying on less experienced engineers to create them as a foundation. Performance review- HAHA, no such thing while I worked there. Engineering is a joke, because they just copy and paste from a previous job, even with the same mistakes, simply becuase managment says to. Designers do not know how to use CAD or Excel, yet try and tell engineers how to do their job!! Brown nosing personnel who will throw you under the bus simply because you breathe. Be ready to be filled with a positive outlook but to be laid off the very next day. Get your act together, push your ego aside, communicate, team build, hire great talent and get the job done correctly. When customers see this, projects will be on board too.

    I have been working at Holloman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good environment, decent salary, coworkers seem to keep to themselves.

    Cons

    They don't like you using the term Engineer if you are not a PE, you can have a Engineer degree from an accredited school but you are not an Engineer. All the projects are the same poorly manage and no room for Engineering just cut and paste from the last project. Maybe that is why they don't want you to be consider an Engineer??

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together start holding people responsible for loosing projects.
