Everyone is friendly, you build a bond with the daily people that come in to work, no complains. Friday-Sunday is really calm, not much to do, but still need make sure the building is secure and safe.

TRU Simulation+Training Business Unit
Payroll Clerk (Former Employee), Goose Creek, SCMarch 23, 2016
Pros: Good Benefits
Cons: Not Orgainized on Responsiblities
I was hired for the accounting department but somehow had to work IT technical tickets and take over HR responsibilities. I had a hard time learning anything because my boss was constantly changing my responsibilities before I could learn them. The IT department sent all system issues concerning time keeping software to me because they did not know how to work in the system nor did they want to learn. I was hired as hourly and told there was no overtime but my boss always called me over the weekend asking me to check the system or time cards. I ended up working every other Sunday because management never did their job responsibility concerning time cards. I could never enjoy my days off or holiday breaks because my boss would call or send my texts (on my personal phone) to work. Was told by my boss that I should always take my laptop home in-case she needed me to do something after work hours. My boss had no concern for her employee's work life balance.

Great People, Poor Work Life Balance

There are some amazing people that work here, it's sad they arent treated better by management. Management has no respect for employee's personal time.

Morale is low
Production Manager (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCNovember 3, 2015
Life work balance is not great for Production Managers and all departments are stretched thin. There are not very many opportunities to advance once in a management role.

Indentured Servant or Slavery on the Installment Plan
Temp (Former Employee), Augusta, GaJune 20, 2015
Pros: Can't think of any.
Cons: Everything is geared toward the company, never the workers.
No heat in the winter, no a/c in the blistering southern summer where it often is 105 degrees inside. The majority of the work force are temps, many for five years or more and are treated as second class citizens. Temps lose 5 weeks of pay a year because of shutdowns, while employee don't.
Pay is very low and work is hard and dirty. The rules are always changing because of poor management.
Only go here as a last resort.

I love the penal camp/asylum atmosphere there...
Engineering Tech (Former Employee), Hunt ValleyJune 16, 2015
Pros: The few functional human being that work there and leaving the hole
Cons: Prison Guard Like Supervisors
They produce UAVs but the mentality in most areas is drone-like, how ironic. Production workers here tend to gravitate to the moody, aloof, opinionated and some are manipulative and backstabbing. Lots of territorial aggression is a big problem with a few of the more "seasoned" employees. On the bright side there a lot of really great people there and there are a lot interesting systems to work on and develop. A difficult to advance in good ol boy network seems to be prevalent. Stay away and find a place that employ more adults and pays real wages....

Not ideal for anyone
electronic assembler (Former Employee), Cockeysville MDAugust 6, 2015
Pros: hiring
Cons: LAYOFFS, NO LOYALTY WHAT SO EVER. LOTS OF CLIQS
At one point a friendly place to work now a operation of lies and people who dont know what they are doing. They dont pay well, and to save themselves from scrutiny you will be the scapegoat.
