    I have been working at IAP Worldwide Services (More than a year)

    Pros

    Honest, forthcoming management. They don't sugar coat the bad news, and are up front about their expectations.

    Cons

    Limited professional development opportunities on their overseas contracts, especially outside of the trades. Not their fault as it's sort of how the industry is, but if you're not a plumber or electrician, don't expect to be taught much beyond what you need for your day to day responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a way for non-trades employees to learn and develop.

    Pros

    The only thing good was the pay and there was a Union that didn't do anything.

    Cons

    The funny thing is that I'm sure IAP is a great place to work being the mother company and all. But the contractor name for Naval Air Station Pensacola is called Pensacola Bay Support Services. The contract was under-bid and there are not enough workers, trucks, equipment, or qualified supervisors to take orders from. I worked in the water/wastewater side of the UT there. They have a 70 year old two-faced, double-talking, throw you under the bus woman there. If you accept the Lab Tech job, you will be doing everything.. and I mean everything. Without any kind of organization that a normal company like you might be used to. A scattered brained great grandma will be telling you how and what you need to do without ever saying it. Then when you can't follow her craziness, she will throw you under the bus. She takes hour off a week to go deal with her 80 year old husband that is in and out of the hospital. She is inexperienced for the job, rude to customers by telling them to eat sht and get in line to make a complaint. I feel sorry for her and the company. They are all sad over there, and the Union is on its way out. My point is this.. the place is NOT as advertised. Like IAP Worldwide Services, Inc. This place is the shtty child company. You have been warned.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being money grubbing btches, back-stabbers, and idiots. The company could flourish.
