    Pros

    Great people. Hard working and dedicated teams. Supportive leaders, at management level. The facility is nice.
    Mgt is flexible so long as you do your job.

    Cons

    Not appreciated by top execs. Employees are overworked and under paid. Company very dysfunctional. Don't expect to be trained and plan on wearing a lot of hats. Poor health care policy.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the good people. Set goals that are reasonable and attainable with the existing staff...or increase headcount!

    I worked at Rapiscan Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great training and lots of travel. Employees were very helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    The technology that they still use today at airports are outdated. The complex electronics in their systems are highly exposed and a risk to health. The required security clearance is not a clearance but a federal background check and if you had any blemishes in your record including credit reports in the past 10-15 years, you will be dismissed from the company. You have 2 weeks to appeal a decision but most times your appeal will not matter. There is no forgiveness to allow you to explain certain situations that you had no part in but reflected on your credit report.

    Advice to Management

    Help those who are good, skilled, talented, and honest hard working people with minute blemishes on their background check.

    I have been working at Rapiscan Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None, other than a few good people that actually care.

    Cons

    Not enough room to list. Morale is horrible. Personnel are overworked and underpaid. Constant layoffs create monster workloads for others. You don't have to do your job to survive. You just have to be kissing up to the right people. Five Presidents in 7 years speaks volumes and the customer base sees the chaos in performance. Horrible place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Deep dive your contracts. Spend time inquiring of performance in all area instead of sell, sell, sell products. Pay attention to your people for a change and get rid of ones not performing on critical mission areas, instead of coddling them.
