    I have been working at Rome Research Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Like I said; The pay is fair for the location. It's a good place to get your feet wet after the military. Once you learn everything about the site you are better off applying your skills with a company that has the opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    It's a union shop with no union presence. The only exception is when the contract is close to expiration. That's when they step up to the plate for more pay. The management here will not have your back when it comes to conflict resolution between a customer or the military. They just fire you. Even if you have evidence in your favor....they fire you. One more thing...the benefits....You are better off buying your own medical insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for the people that work for you. They work hard for you....you should work hard for them. Stop the segregation between corporate and contractors. Keep up to date about openings in the corporate office. If a better position opens up tell your employees about it. If you do all of this you might not lose so many talented people.

    I worked at Rome Research Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good salary for the area, which has a low cost of living, longer hours/work days mean shorter work weeks.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from top to bottom, vicious rumor mill, company lets the Army beat them like a rented mule, company doesn't stand up for it's employees, little to no involvement from the union that you are required to be part of, multiple employees fired for minor or non-offenses, drastic lack of job security/continuity.

    Pros

    Some fellow employees are friendly.

    Cons

    The new leadership here is dishonorable, they are cunning and deceitful. They also have inexperienced managers who are not qualified to lead small or large teams to achieving success. People are thrown into positions based off being a next door neighbor, not that they are qualified capable. It has caused a cancerous unqualified environment. Most business models here are done off the back of a lunchtime napkin. This is not a professional organization and they lack class.

    Advice to Management

    You need to treat people with respect, honesty and intergrity should be you sole focus. The business lines are too narrow. Business is drying up. The iceberg has melted.

    (Translated from English)

    Pros

    Gut für Einsteiger-Techniker ohne Erfahrung, Rome-Verträge mit der US-Regierung erlauben Mitarbeitern, eine Vielzahl von Geräten zu betreiben. Auch ein einfacher Einstellungsprozess, ich habe nicht gehört, dass jemand für einen Job mit Rome abgelehnt wurde, es sei denn, es wurde ein Problem mit der Bewerber-Sicherheitsfreigabe entdeckt.

    Cons

    Hohe Fluktuationsrate der Mitarbeiter und kein Platz für beruflichen Aufstieg. Vorteile und Gehälter sind niedrig im Vergleich zur Branchennorm.

    Pros

    While their benefits aren't great, they aren't terrible either. They've medical, dental, vision, and 401k. They'll even pay you a little fringe benefit should you opt to not use their medical insurance.

    Cons

    You will be nothing more than a number to them. Any work issues and the like, they don't care. At best, they will mitigate the issue so that it's not a problem for them. At worse, they cut you loose faster than a vegan with diarrhea.

    Being paid what you are worth is the end goal of every employee; Rome will ensure that you are paid well below industry standard in an effort to save face with the DoD on their contracts. What better way to provide an excellent service by cutting pay to those who provide that service!

    Pros

    The work area is good because the Co workers you will have will be great. Except for one B&G employee who always tries to get away with work and thinks he's above everyone else

    Cons

    The security shifts suck. Hard to cope with and hard to adjust. Takes a lot of getting used to

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the new program manager.

    Pros

    Rome Research Corporation places a lot of emphasis on safety protocols that each employee
    must follow. Cyber security, and work ethics are also reviewed annually. Workplace non-discrimination, non-harassment guidelines are promulgated. Overall, the work environment
    is pleasant and safe.

    Cons

    The salaries offered are the same wether you are a newby or veteran to the industry. Merit increases are nonexistant. Overtime work is mandatory.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and be more open to needs of the employees.It would be helpful, and benefitial for the
    employees to get more feedback on job performances.
