    Pros

    Very knowledgeable and professional Senior Executive Staff, willing to share their time and experience. Very approachable. A technically oriented company with outstanding customer relationships and customer support at Regional Hub Zone Sites supporting the Global Information Grid.

    Cons

    Can bid Prime on 517110 NAICS Code Projects but not SB opportunities. This reduces the number of opportunities they can bid Prime so are relegated to subbing on large and small contracts.

    Advice to Management

    Combine the company capabilities into a single Rome Research mosaic that responds to the Master solicitations now being emphasized by the Government such as RS3 and Aliant.

    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

    There very good at bring you in the door the truth is they may defer from the original agreement.

    Cons

    Pay attention to the information that is given verbally and document every conversation and meeting. You are trained and then stripped of you value for skills and hourly wage.

    Advice to Management

    stick to what the offer that's presented and the employee will not leave listen to the information disturbed and stop replacing employee for inexpensive fresh out the military employee they hold only a quality to get a job not keep one over a long period.

    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.

    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.

  9. Low stress, fair place.

    Pros

    Wähle deine eigenen Karriereweg mit der Möglichkeit, als RF-Techniker zum Einsatz zu kommen und in die IP-basierten Systeme oder mehr in die spezialisierte RF-Ausrüstung einzutauchen.

    Choose your own career path, able to come in as an RF technician and move into IP based systems or enter into more specialized RF equipment.

    Cons

    Die Leistungsbeschreibung wird nicht eingehalten. Von den Auftragnehmern wird erwartet, zu arbeiten, wo immer es nötig ist und die Geschäftsleitung vollzieht das auf beiden Seiten des Jobs, der militärischen und zivilen. Differenzielle Bezahlung gibt es nicht.

    Statement of Work is not adhered to. Contractors are expected to do work wherever there is a need and upper management enforces this on both the military and civilian side of the job. Differential pay is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Passen Sie die Leistungsbeschreibung an oder erhöhen Sie das Gehalt, um das zusätzliche Arbeitspensum zu vergüten.

    Adjust Work Statement or increase pay to compensate for additional workload
