Technical Writer (Former Employee), Shelton, ConnecticutNovember 29, 2013
Pros: close restaurant of lunch. no supervision. no weekends needed to work.
Cons: was a consultant job so benefits aren't included
The most enjoyable part of the job is feeling accomplished. I learned first-hand the other side of military publications and documents. I got to work on schematic diagrams and technical publications. I never really saw this job as hard at all. There were many hectic times and days, buts all in a day's job. The work ethic and diligence of my floor of – more... co-workers stayed high most of the time. The moral in the place was also high. It's probably because the fact you were payed a decent amount for a decent day's work. – less

Pros: every day learning the productivity of the previous day
Cons: not there long
A typical work day was Exciting, because of the surrounding, and endless possibilities of learning reading blue prints to assemble gear pumps for Caterpillar. I've learned to identify the parts, count the number of parts, including a number of different type seals O-rings bolts threading on the bolts and also different pressure hose and cuplings. when – more... the pump binds after assembly identifying the out of tolerance part place an orange or defective part placing a lable on it place it in the rework bin. co-workers were helpful to say the least and a great goupe of team members i belive the hardest part of the job was stopping to go to the washroom and tool shed because of the size of the warehouse those to thing took a little time. – less

Not a great place to work
Staff (Former Employee), NCJanuary 19, 2013
Cons: management
Communication between management and staff needs much improvement. Management considers staff as low class. If you do not bow down to management they find ways to get rid of you.

Productive and fun workplace.
Senior Technical Writer/Editor (Current Employee), Shelton, CTMay 6, 2012
Pros: good pay, benefits, vacation
Cons: deadlines tend to overlap with other projects
Overall a really good place to work. We are given the choice of flex hours and because we are contrators we can normally take time off whenever we choose without question. Although the medical benefits are on the high cost side, the company does offer benefits which is virtually unheard of for contractors. The company treats you like a regular employee – more... instead of a contractor while at the same time giving you the flexibility that a conractor normally has.

The compay offers competitive pay with like jobs in the market. The projects tend to overlap creating unnecessary stress in the workplace and causing us to take shortcuts that reduces the quality of the product. Projects should be as evenly spread a possible to prevent overlapping deadlines. This would also reduce the layoffs between projects as we would have them spread out throughout the year and not all bunched up during single timeframes. We produce a high quality product but it could be higher quality if we didn't have to take shortcuts due to several different projects overlapping with the same or near the same deadlines. The only other alternative would be to hire more writers which would produce more layoffs during the slow times of the year. – less

Worked in graveyard shift from 9 pm to 6.30 AM (IST). Management is not that much great to enhance the knowledge and career growth is very less. Had good friendly environment with co-workers.
