A typical day at work included answering phone calls, explaining accounts to customers and a lot of multitasking. The management was very hands on and centered around team work. The most enjoyable part of the job was the productivity. Getting all of the quotas met and all the customer's files turned in on time.

Principal I/C Designer (Former Employee), Anchorage, AK – August 9, 2014
Cons: buy your own office supplies
Check in for head count. I learned that you have to report your timesheet everyday and on quarterly time period end on Thursday before the end of the day and charge Friday to a time code that you may or may not be approved for. Management, make the weekly hours long meetings and be sure to project man hours that they like to hear regardless of accuracy – more... (So the General can say the road is Open). Co-workers were young and very in-experienced but were very good at playing space rangers and surfing the internet on their computers while texting their friends on their cell phones at the same time. The hardest job was a Fuel Gas Conversion Project where you had over 30 years of rats nests and you could not walk down the facility and tell the constructor where to locate equipment and land the incoming wiring to antiquated PLC cabinets and marshalling the homerun cabling. Most enjoyable part of the job was getting laid off right before Thanksgiving so they did not have to pay Holiday pay and they could then out source the jobs to Romania. I do not think this review should be posted – less
Great Place to work, and with great people to work with.
Office Assistant (Former Employee), New Orleans, LA – August 6, 2014
Pros: good office environment
Learned how to plot large documents and drawings for scanning, how to build a job for bid, enter data into Project Management Console (PMC), Project Wise (PW) and was introduced to Auto CAD. I enjoyed learning all these new processes and anything to expand my knowledge of these. The hardest part of the job was if a machine was down and we really had – more... to get the information ready to go out, had to find a way around it which was challenging but we had to get it done.
Management was always professional and ready to help in anyway they could. – less
Residential Aircraft Expert/ Plane Captain (Current Employee), Coronado, CA – August 4, 2014
Pros: good coworkers and benfits
Cons: very little advancement opportunities, micormanaging crippling the workers
This job has given me a lot of new experiences and I have worked hard to progress. This company could do better by allowing more advancement opportunities or having an annual raise instead of just capping out. Micromanaging/ not listening to the people doing the actual work has crippled and demoralized the hard workers. This company is a good stepping – more... stone comapny or a foot in the door to the aviation world. – less

IT Technician (Former Employee), Sather Air Base, Iraq – July 19, 2014
Pros: salary, co-workers
Cons: confined to small base in iraq
A typical day was 12 hours working with fellow employees to troubleshoot any network or computer issues. The management was involved, receptive, and caring. My co-workers were wonderful. Everyone ensured nothing was "one-man-deep". We all trained one another to do each others jobs. The hardest part of the job was the initial adjustment to 120 degree – more... plus heat. The most enjoyable aspect of the job was the ability to do so many different things. One day could be spent troubleshooting the network and the next flying to a remote location to set up a VSAT. – less
