RPSTL Writer (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – January 15, 2018
Started out very slow paced with lots of down time, problem with this was that down time was not taken advantage of and new individuals were not trained to be more proficient at the job, instead everyone sat around this went on for months.In the end the prime canceled the contract, not sure why but one can only assume.
Field Engineer (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – December 6, 2017
Guaranteed 40hrs / week, paid on time, and management will work with you if any issues or concerns about the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to complete work order without constant supervision. The worst part of the job was the entering the weekly time reports on two separate systems.
Lots of travel, their can be a lack of work some months
Technician (Current Employee) – Texas – August 2, 2017
This was a good job for someone that enjoys to work in different locations. Compensate for the time it takes to travel and wear and tear on vehicle. Good pay but getting laid off when work is not available is almost guaranteed.
VICE PRESIDENT, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT (Former Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – July 25, 2017
Executive management is unstable. One day you are the best thing they have ever seen, and without warning, the next you can't do anything right. They turn over managers every 4-6 months in order to get out of paying a bonus.
Productive and fun workplace w/ping pong table, a very active Fun Club (sponsors group activity, monthly lunches/breakfasts for minimum fee).
Senior Designer (Current Employee) – West Lafayette, IN – June 29, 2017
Very pleasant place to work, with young energetic intelligent staff who work well with the older, experienced staff. A good place to start your professional career, as you will be exposed to a variety of opportunities to expand knowledge of industry and customer;s standards and processes.
Management is very positive, and encouraging of employees who wish to advance and assume additional responsibility. Leadership diligently works to keep everyone engaged in projects, including temporarily loaning sub-ordinates to other groups to assist in spikes in their workloads,
Pay increases are very rare, but in four years I have not witnessed any lay-offs. While a 401K retirement fund is offered, there is no company-matching funds,

ITC analyst (Current Employee) – West Lafayette, IN – June 7, 2017
I have been with the company for 2 years now, and have a pretty good idea of what to expect from them. First things first, don't expect too much advancement without an engineering degree. Second off, this is contract work. There are times of deadening boredom and times of chaos. There really is no happy medium in your work load. And as far as paid breaks or lunches, prepare to put in extra time to compensate for the time spent outside of the office.
All training is done through a series of dull and drab powerpoints/word documents, or training videos. The training is quite vague and leaves a lot to interpretation. Learning comes from hands on with the programs, failing and learning from the failures, and asking the right questions
International Trade Compliance sounds like a fancy title, and the job is important, but it's not very engaging. Each part of the helicopter has a level of security that they are bound to. The parts can range from open to any person in any country to restricted to only the US. It's the ITC Analysts job to determine how restricted the parts are based on the location of the part, usage, and platform. There are several documents given by the government, that the ITC analyst has to review and use for the part classifications. But they're so long and dull. If put in this position, do what you're told, do the job to the best of your ability, be professional about it(even though it is boring) and ask lots of questions. But, I would suggest searching for another department to move to.
There's a serious case of the head doesn't know what the foot ismore... doing. There's a lack of communication all around especially management. There's a lot of favoritism. Chances of getting any longevity out of the job are slim to none, unless you don't mind mundane, mindless work that deviates heavily from the original positions purpose.
Overall, a decent place to work (with a few quirks) for a short period of time. Be on the look out for something better at all times.less
ok pay, flexible time (within a certain window), laid back environment
Healthcare, Training, Favoritism, Lack of communication
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Shelton, CT – May 22, 2017
Management is nice to work with, but it's a very slow placed environment. Nice new office space, which is much better than it used to be. office is in a good location and easy to get to from the highway
Lead Interior Stress (Former Employee) – West Lafayette, IN – May 13, 2017
It is not a friendly company for senior level people because they primarily profit from the differential rates of contract and employment cost. The company had lost a contract with the client due to low performance and overcharged billing.
RPSTL Lead (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – April 12, 2017
When there is work, it is a great place to keep busy and work in a team environment. The hardest part of this job, is there is to much down time, it make for a long day when there is little to no work.
Telecom technician (Former Employee) – Texas – November 17, 2016
I felt manipulated after being recruited to work near my home, but ended up driving 250 miles away. The people at Butler stated that they needed me in another work location working as a telecom tech, until their them ar new hires got up to speed. Also , I realized that other techs tend to try to get you fired. I worked with a tech that had very little experience, but Butler utilized him to be a snitch. Also, you have to keep track of your work hours or you will definitely end up with a short pay check... I will never work for this company ever again...
