    A company with no sense of direction

    Finance (Current Employee)

    ProsThe lower level of management and their staff are very good hard working people.
    Compensation is good
    Benefits are Ok
    Challenging tasks

    ConsManagement has no sense of direction
    Too many changes in organization structure
    Too many VP’s & Sr. Directors
    Poor training for new hires
    Very poor HR department it is all about protecting the company but not the employee
    Too many complaints never addressed
    Poor employee moral
    Favoritism
    No merit increase for the last 3 years
    Constant increasing benefit cost
    Reduced 401K company match
    The business is decreasing and poor business development
    Do not care about employee’s wellbeing or their life outside of work the company is demanding more hours.
    Directors and up are very demanding and very good at blaming others

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to clean house, take care of your hard working people

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

    Awesome Dynamic Company

    EOD Specialist/Security Lead/Senior EOD Technical Adviser (Former Employee) Kabul (Afghanistan)

    ProsGreat HR, Finance Department.Excellent compliance ethos. Never an issue with corporate, and they went many extra miles when abrupt endings occurred on contracts they had.

    ConsSome Senior project management lacked skills in administrating and managing people. Many were hired for their credentials, rather then their abilities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have a good program, provided excellent overall support and handled the day to day issues well. More clarity of what field management can and can't do would be appreciated.

    Review

    Director of Pricing (Current Employee) Fort Worth, TX (US)

    ProsGaffney's vision, leadership, mentoring. Completely different company since Cerberus bought us.

    Cons"It's not my job"; "It's the COE's fault", "COE's do not support us" and like statements from middle management and below that tarnish relationships.
    Common statements within BATs and COEs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't compound bad decision made several years ago and perpetuate it. It might be better to snap a chalk line and start over.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Project Controls

    Project Controls (Current Employee) Kabul (Afghanistan)

    ProsThe job is satisfing and a good chance to work in on an international project in Afghanistan. The pay is good and the foreign earned income exclusion is a bonus. You have opportunities to visit other countries during your R&Rs.

    ConsIt's a difficult time for families being apart 11 months a year. You can only be back in the USA for 35 days or less per year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut more influence on training and mentorship programs.
