Exciting Job with new challenges everyday
Engineering Technician III (Current Employee), Norfolk, VAFebruary 28, 2015
Pros: travel and overtime
Cons: healthcare, management, government oversight (civil service reps)
Everyday is a challenge with new tasks and goals for employees, set to complete naval training. On the job training is there if needed. Thrill packed, fast pace, and exciting. The job is excellent. Lots of travel which brings in lots of overtime. Lower management is awesome, your co workers are great and easy to get a long with. Upper management on the other hand could use a lot of work. The customer work relationship the government department is crooked, misleading, and the guys are a bunch of bold face liers. They do not appreciate workers achievements. Advancement is slim to none. I am lower management and have not received a raise for over 7yrs, even after being placed into a management roll. I stuck around because I love my job. I figured I could work around the politics and drama of upper management and government (civil service) work relations, but it has gotten to extensive. Medical benefits are expensive, be expecting to work half your check for a decent medical plan. 401k is decent. They match you pretty well. The hardest part of the job is travel since we are gone almost 4-6months out the year and being away from family. Sometimes the overtime does not seem worth it. The most enjoyable part is the new challenges and the new scenarios we are presented almost on a daily basis

Management is (A) senior level
Demanding and they should be
Although Human Resources was managed from their California headquarters
Government contracts issued by the State Department so there is quite a bit of waiting for decisions

Not an easy job.

Pros: experience
Cons: compensation is not enough for the experience
This job will prove challenging as you will be away from your family for a long time. The advancement opportunity is not really seen in the company and the compensation for the work you do is not adequate to the conditions you are put in/through.

good breakroom with lots of movies
Low Observable Helper (Former Employee), Nellis air force baseNovember 12, 2014
Pros: good pay, awesome breakroom, close to fast food
Cons: healthcare, stress, covering up mistakes, work conflict, distant management
Bosses and fellow coworkers do not get a long. The only good thing about the job was the paycheck. But the emotional stress will leave you going home angry and tired every day. But the hardest part of the job was dealing with an untrustworthy company that only cares for it bottom line. Not the employees. If you want a dead end job than this is the place for you.

Pros: making a difference within the central prisons directorate
Cons: convincing the central prisons directorate that a certain suggestion was the right thing to do
Managed the overall operation of the Corrections System Support Program in Afghanistan. A typical day at work involved insuring the program was moving in the right direction, that the security posture at the time allowed our staff to travel safely throughout the country, interacted with our customer and Afghan counterparts, kept staff informed on all relevant information and met with various entities.
The CSSP team was a great staff who worked extremely hard on a daily basis to complete our mission of training and mentoring the Afghan Corrections System.
Daily interaction with staff and Afghan counterparts.
