      I have been working at IAP Worldwide Services full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Left alone to work and thrive. Not micro managed,

      Cons

      Can never get ahold of management or HR. Under paid for positions, high turn over in corporate staff.

      Advice to Management

      Make it a goal to talk to the employees that do the contract work. If you don’t make them happy they will leave and you will loose the contract. Or they will leave for another contract. If you make the employee happy he will want to stay a lifetime and make you happy.

      I have been working at IAP Worldwide Services full-time

      Pros

      Pay, but benefits not very affordable anymore.

      Cons

      No work/life balance at all. I feel guilty leaving for lunch or after 6pm on Fridays. Co-workers are rude, condescending and sarcastic. Very sweet during the hiring process, then once hired, you are not valued and treated poorly by manager and co-workers. Their policy of professional conduct of respect for all clearly has no merit here. Don’t accept a sign on bonus. You won’t want to stay that long.

      Advice to Management

      Does upper management really know how middle managers are treating employees? Maybe send out an anonymous survey. It might be an eye opener.

      I worked at IAP Worldwide Services full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      They offer fairly competitive salaries and average benefits.

      Cons

      Continual reduction of force over 5 years, left the workforce scared for their future and paralyzed because of too few resources to get the job done.

      Solid overall place to work

        Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I have been working at IAP Worldwide Services for more than 2 years

        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.

        I worked at IAP Worldwide Services full-time for more than a year

        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,...

        Location. The facility is located right on the IRL.

        Fear based culture. Taking initiative is strongly discouraged.
