    Pros

    I'm prior military and it's great working for folks who still maintain the discipline of service members, but are open to new ideas. The company is growing from the theater draw down overseas back in 2012. I'm not afraid to approach top leadership with new ideas - they'll listen. The culture here is much better than my last job at a large organization. No micro management that I've seen.

    Cons

    Millennials are rocking the boat a little, but it's met with optimism.

    Advice to Management

    Engage lower levels of employees for feedback and new ideas.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at K2 Solutions full-time

    Pros

    puppies. and some of the people are good

    Cons

    they don't pay employees what they're worth, senior management takes no responsibility when they fail the employees, nepotism runs rampant no matter how poor the job performance - if you're related to the owner you're going to keep your job no matter how poorly you do it. safety of handlers and canines when traveling isn't a concern or a priority

    I worked at K2 Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The workers are hard workers that care for the canines as best they can. They worked on 4 day week and reduced salaries to ensure canines got the care they needed.

    Cons

    Executives dont care other than getting money. They over breed the dogs to get cheap numbers, buy new trucks with wraps for over $300k and still the staff have not had salaries returned to pre-paycut levels.

    Advice to Management

    Retire!

    Too much multi-tasking by people not experienced in the subject material.

    I have been working at K2 Solutions full-time

    Pros

    K2 has been great because the executive team is very down to earth and willing to help with the smallest of projects.

    Cons

    The main issue is that it is in the middle of no where. The Southern Pines location is not too bad, but the Canine center is forever away.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to allow your employes greater reign on their own jobs, less meetings, and clearer long term missions.

    I worked at K2 Solutions full-time

    Pros

    The lower level workers are good; most if then

    Cons

    The management, they are running that company into the ground. They have the wrong people in jobs they are unqualified for and that is only one of many reasons they cannot win contracts. They have cliques that they play favorites with even if that means bad things for the company. They made money during a decade war in two different countries but now contracts are more competitive and they cannot win. They founder has lost touch and the moeny may have gone to his head.

    Advice to Management

    Quit
