      Pros

      The mission at hand is important.

      Cons

      If you are somebody that's driven and wants more out of a job, This isn't the place. You are forced to sit there for 2-3 weeks out of a month when you aren't lead tech to do nothing. We are talking about 7-8 hrs a day sitting doing absolutely nothing.

      Good Benefits, Poor Job Design and Poor Leadership

      Apr 4, 2021 - Senior IT Technician in Dayton, OH
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Benefits were good, work was not overly-demanding. People were somewhat professional. Job security. Cafeteria on site. Gym benefits (pre-covid). I got the covid19 vaccine early.

      Cons

      The job they assigned to me had zero to do with my skills and why I was hired. Training and career development were non-existent. Some people I worked with were into Q-anon, which was scary considering they had a clearance, I was actually questioned by base authorities about said co-workers. I’ll stop there. Left after 14 months.
