Busy and tense work place.
Pros: Fortune to be able to contribute to the defense of the US in its time of need.
Cons: Very tense work environment.
Lot of deadline, meetings and problems. I learned that I can function effectively in a high pressure environment. Management was poor. Co-workers were high strung at time. The hardest part of the job was there was no one from AMEC, their subcontractors or Pentagon team that had any prior commissioning experience. The most enjoyable part was being able to develop means, methods and systems to successfully complete the commissioning in a timely manner.
