    4% on 401k

    Cons

    Snowden and Chinese Hack extended the clearance wait substantially for many.
    The waiting process has many lost in limbo.

    Pros

    Pay is decent, decent benefits, but it does seem they get a little worse every year.

    Cons

    Too many middle managers, managers seem to not have a clue what is actually going on, even though pay is decent overall management seems to treat workers poorly, often a there is the door type attitude. Not very many transferable job skills.

    Pros

    You can be assured of great job stability at this company. Wages are very good.

    Cons

    The work schedule fluctuates frequently and sometimes you have to stay overnight, so if you have a "significant other" at home, they will need to be very tolerant of your schedule and be flexible as well. Basically, you won't have much of a life during the work week.

    Advice to Management

    Current management is pretty supportive of the workforce, if there are issues it is due to the nature of the job. So my advice is when you have to replace supervisors and such, you will need to make sure they, too, are understanding of the drawbacks of the job and not take it lightly.

    Pros

    Great company. Great people to work with. Learning experience. Benefits given. Secured employment, just keep clean no drugs policy which includes weed.

    Cons

    No advancement, no pay increase. They say the cost of living you get once a year is considered a raise. They allow people who know nothing about your work give appraisals. Which are rated low. Instead of bringing moral up they being it down. If you are female some say you are just admin which not all are. As far as training to advance your courier is a joke. You put in for training and you are denied. If you want to advance, keep your head down. Stay away the annex manager because if he does not like you, you will soon be gone.

    Advice to Management

    Need new annex manager.

    Pros

    Wide variety of electronic systems and equipment to work on

    Cons

    Sometimes the 50+ Hrs work schedule and OT overrides your desire to have a weekend or a day off to go to school, bible study, etc

    Advice to Management

    Hire more technicians to lighten the work load.

    Pros

    The best education benefits ever... fully reimbursed higher education with no annual limits offered to all employees on any job-related (or company-related) program.

    The company really cares about its employees... from the top all the way down. The company is small enough to allow HR and annex-leadership to develop a rapport with individuals. Supervisors and managers work with employees who are having hardships. As an example, the company has a written policy allowing allocation of funds to provide free paid leave and a bouquet of flowers to an employee who has experienced a death in the family... things like that make this a great company to work for. For exempt employees, supervisors can allow lots of schedule flexibility for any reason.

    Cons

    Most of these CONS are for Annex 1 (Edwards AFB):

    Some work sites are very low-quality. Some areas are chilled to 65 degrees, others are outside in the desert heat. Some facilities are completely maintained by govt. and are often lacking common supplies (like disposable toilet seat covers, hand soap, hot water, and toilet paper) and adequate maintenance services (landscaping, trash services, etc).

    Commuting times from Lancaster/Palmdale can be over 45 minutes. Living closer would mean living in Rosamond, California City, or Lake Los Angeles (typically less-than-desirable locations).

    No tele-work opportunities in areas where it makes a lot of sense.

    Advice to Management

    I'd strongly encourage spreading annual increases out by matching inflation/cost-of-living for each employee. After that, the rest of the budget should be allocated purely on the basis of performance. You could take a look at the government's CCAS-rating system. Even though they don't implement it properly, it is a great system. This will help you maintain your top talent while avoiding situations where you grossly overpay under-performing employees.

    The job-advertising process could use an overhaul. Open jobs often receive too few applicants. This forces managers to hire candidates that are less-than-ideal, despite the abundance of qualified candidates in the job market. More attention and funding here could have a profound long-term effect on the company.

    Consider implementing a telework policy to allow (at minimum) all employees to perform CBT from home. This can also be used to keep potentially contagious employees from coming to work in order to save their vacation. Once extended to top talent, it'll be one easy way to solidify loyalty without spending additional funding.

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging work, for the most part.

    Cons

    Your continuing education is on your own. Ridiculous bonus structure heavily slanted toward those that manage and not the individuals that do the grunt work.

    Advice to Management

    Ex-military managers - you are no longer in the military so military management structures and ideas no longer apply. Freshen up the way you deal with your subordinates.

    Listen to the concerns of the employees.

    Pros

    Has a great work environment. Excellent benefits, and competitive salaries. Management always seemed supportive. Up to speed technical training and job pride are big factors in my opinion.

    Cons

    Tonopah and Beatty NV are the two larger locations one lives to work here. The towns are small, and offer very little variety for any shopping or entertainment.

    Advice to Management

    Just ensure the living conditions mentioned above are compensated, and considered. Due to high rotation, individuals end up in charge, who may not be ready for that type of challenge.
