    I have been working at NACG full-time

    Pros

    Decent wages even after the pay cuts, union has good benefits and the pension contribution is very good

    Cons

    Chaos. People are to be used and tossed aside as company needed. You are a number, not a person. Very little room for growth in technical departments.

    Advice to Management

    A more humane and honest approach to employees would undoubtedly be much appreciated by field staff. Not squeezing your lowest level employees for every additional buck also would help retain talent.

    I worked at NACG (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay
    Friendly co-workers
    Social events for networking and keep high spirits

    Cons

    Not very challenging work
    The onsite engineers didn't let the co-ops do many engineering related tasks

    Advice to Management

    Let the co-ops shadow the engineers instead of just making them do all the paper work
