    Pros

    Relatively good treatment of employees, competitive pay, good technicians. Works to move current employees to other jobs if issues/conflicts arise.

    Cons

    They have many contract-specific jobs and few core staff. When the contract goes, most employees do as well. However, that is the norm for the Ft Huachuca area.

    Pros

    Contract world is always changing. Things are constantly evolving. If you work hard, there are some opportunities. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Benefits are very costly. Bonus structure appears to be only for Senior Management, low merit increases. Almost a "good ole boy" network with promotions. High turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Become aware of what the actual happenings are, promote more from within.

    Pros

    Good integrated onboarding, benefit management.

    Cons

    They are famous for stating well below market with hints of a raise later, then when time comes for a raise, you get 1% because "the VPs control all the raises."

    Advice to Management

    The revolving door for skilled workers will continue to spin until you pay them competitively.

    Pros

    PM looked out for employees based on environmental conditions and customer experience

    Cons

    poor communication between management and 1st tier employees; PMs had to get top level approval to fix problems

    Advice to Management

    provide better communication to 1st tier employees so the job expectation are met or exceeded on a daily basis.
