    A political company

    Nuclear Security Officer (Former Employee) San Clemente, CA (US)

    ProsExcellent pay and benefits! An experience I will never forget as long as I live.

    ConsI observed that promotions are based on sex, religion, race, buddy system and an individuals sexual preferences I.E. L.B.G.T.. It was not uncommon for you to sit for hours in a booth no bigger than a broom closet. It was hard to get restroom breaks or meal breaks. You could expect long hours of boredom and anxiety.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management was blind to what mid - level management was doing. Due to incompetence and a design flaw, the station was eventually shut down.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Mismanagement All-Around

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) Rosemead, CA (US)

    ProsGood location in Rosemead away from the hustle and bustle.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWake up and smell the coffee. Answering emails all day behind closed doors for 10 hours a day is NOT management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    IT is going through managed services. It's a very stressful time knowing my job will be gone...

    IT Specialist (Current Employee) Irwindale, CA (US)

    ProsThe company offers competitive pay and good benefits.

    ConsMany IT professionals have or will lose their jobs. The senior leaders don't seem to care about IT employees anymore. I

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsk IT employee if they are willing to take a cut pay. Keep more jobs in US instead of sending our jobs to India. Look into the entire company to cut the people are not doing good jobs. It's not fair for IT.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
