Worst job I've ever worked at.
Tech Support Analyst (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALSeptember 5, 2013
Over a four month period I felt like tossed around like a rag doll. I had a bad training experience, my supervisor changed three different times, my job duties were constantly in flux, and I never had enough time to do everything.

I was told the time would be 'flux' but I was required to come in a certain time every day and had a required time I had – more... to leave every day, and I was forced to take an hour lunch even though I didn't need it.

My manager told me several times she didn't know the specifics of my job, but she constantly told me I was doing a bad job. My favorite part was on my 90 day evaluation they told me I was doing a decent job, and the literal very next day they said I was doing poorly and risked losing my job.

I could never recommend this job to anybody. – less

As a whole the company is good, just at this site, a lot of unhappy people created from the leadership, work is a no fun zone..
Program Analyst - National Maintenance Site (Former Employee), Johnston, IAApril 18, 2013
Pros: once a quarter free lunch under 6 dollars and xmas meal
Cons: to many to start out, trying to be positive.
Come into work do your job and go home. How to create Power Points through Plagiarism, when this was pointed out a blind eye was turned. Management was less then professional. Most of the employees were not happy because of leadership changes while I was deployed. Coming to work each morning and listening to the sexual content language and abuse of – more... government time and money.
When I decide to leave. – less
