Pros: a great learing experience
I contracted with this company to provide transition at a local military base facility services from a public entity to privatization.
I had catalauged all of the mechanical equipment and provided the scope of work to maintain and service all of the mechanical equipment and systems, lighting, grounds and building repairs for all of the Barracks enlisted and unenlisted.
I interviewed and hired all of the staffing from maintnance techs to administrative staff, whom after 15 years are still employed at the base.
The difficulties I faced in this position would be the interaction between the old government employees whom had worked there for years. Bringing them to the realization that their positions would no longer be available to them and they would be transfering to other facilities which was met with a fair amount of hostility.
I look back after 15 years and see that my system and program are still in place without many modifications, this gives me a great deal of satisfaction.
