    Pros

    Pay is steady. Benefits aren't too bad. Great ideas come around every now and then. Really can't say too much more that's positive.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. Management try's to generally intimidate craft to try push production to increase. Parking is a mess. In order to move into management it's all about who you know, not what you can and are willing to do for the company. The unions are a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Slim down.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, stability (steady paycheck), good benefits

    Cons

    -Management
    -Real engineering work opportunities are hard to find here. I estimate > 80% of engineering will never actually do any engineering work here.
    -Your opinion or what you want to do has no relevance.

    Pros

    Good benefits. great environment to work and people are very nice I worked there for over 10 years.

    Cons

    Bad parking. There's a lot of preferential treatment within the company that limits some people's promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Most managers have an open door policy and are fairly level-headed. However we have not received a pay raise in over 2 years.

    Pros

    Building for our future military personnel with integrity and honor for our nation.

    Cons

    management is all time low. They are completely clueless and take to many short cut by ways of adjusting the time frame and lack of materials to pass the bucket for project that are not completed but lied about and cause the later foreman to take the fall for their lack of reporting the fraud of government spending.

    Advice to Management

    Take the initiative and stop the problem from growing and gain the control of the projects or Bills to make the right call and adjustment to make the job right on track easier for the future bids.
