    Pros

    The team you work with will be the only thing keeping you motivated.

    Cons

    The supervisors are a joke. They don't even do they job they are paid to do. They take many days off whenever they want but demand the job to be done even if it means over time. They sit in numerous "meetings" or "conference calls" and are never available to actually help. The guy who does most of the work isn't "qualified" for the position but he's doing all the supervisors work with no respect.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and not what the supervisors say. They will admit to not knowing the job anymore.

    Pros

    The team you work with will become lifelong friends and will feel like your family. I say that because you will no longer have friends and family outside of work once hired. The teams within each department are very close knit and hardworking.

    Cons

    Extraordinary amount of overtime, no work-social life balance at all, minimal pay, no chance of career growth unless you're married to/related to/best friends with someone high up. Weekend work and holiday work isn't awful. There is some effort to keep it light on those occasions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They're not stupid. They're speaking from the heart. They want to do better and be better if only they weren't constantly beaten down by being overworked and underappreciated.

    I have been working at NAMSA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good coworkers, low level management does all they can and are supportive of employees. Good career growth in the right departments. Decent pay at mid to upper levels.

    Cons

    Poor pay at entry level, poor treatment by mid and upper management. Little concern for quality by many mid managers. Terrible career opportunities for entry level. Entry level employees are really treated as disposable, I know one that was actually told she was "replaceable." No support of low level supervisors by mid and upper management. As other have mentioned, very family oriented in that if you belong to the right family, opportunities are endless. Almost all management is promoted from within and the few hired from the outside are quickly driven out because they aren't "one of us" and *gasp* have suggestions for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Support the technicians doing the work with more staff, resources, and support. It's hard to get good data from over worked, burned out, bitter employees. When making changes, come up with novel ideas (or hire people who can). All I see is the same two ideas to fix problems rotated every year or two, trying to fix long standing issues (that are mostly due to lack of staff).

    Good Training programs, SOP's and co workers. Effort to include social aspects to work life

    Give training classes to management about how to deal with staff in a professional manner.
