Great place to work
Systems Analyst (Current Employee), Huntsville, ALMay 22, 2014
Pros: health insurance, schedule, atmosphere
Cons: limited opportunity for internal advancement
Typical day's for me at COLSA's HMT/MDA-TC Lab include user support system maintenance, customer interaction, and security procedures. I have learned quite a bit about the security process and some advanced computer skills that will help me throughout my career. My management is always helpful and receptive, and provide a safe, and easy going workplace. – more... My coworkers are excelent people that I enjoy spending time with and enjoy working with. The hardest part of the job would be the ability to switch pace, because of our requirement to follow certain security procedures, the pace of our work is fast, until the next procedural point that we are required to wait for outside approval. The most enjoyable part of the job is the atmosphere. I am always encouraged to learn and work through any challenges, and continue down a path to reach my own personal goals. – less

All in a Days Work
Information Management Specialist (Current Employee), Huntsville, ALMay 19, 2014
This is an environment that fosters care for its employees. Everyone from management down tries to work with one another to solve day to day issues. Twice a year we get incentive checks and the alloted vacation time is sufficient. As long as we are making the customer happy, we are making the boss happy and when the boss is happy...

Property Control Assistant Specialist (Current Employee), Huntsville, ALDecember 23, 2013
Pros: great benefits, great environment, great for people pursuing a career
I like the challenge that I got when I first came on board with Colsa. I started learning the different computer programs to keep track of assets and properly track inbound and outbound items on a daily basis. I also learned how to generate barcodes and do asset tracking and keep logs of equipment while supporting the customer and ensuring all inventory – more... is accurate with great detail. – less

Systems Analyst II, Graphic Designer (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALSeptember 4, 2012
Pros: family oriented, great merit increases, good insurance
Cons: didn't invest enough in training workforce
I enjoyed my time with COLSA Corporation. I learned much about contracting and government support with this company. I normally felt valued and like I was a contributing member of every team I was on there. They were in favor of family and encouraged family involvement with the company.

They could have spend more on training and education. It was difficult – more... to get any training with this company, but I did get a lot of on the job training.

They were extremely good about placing skills where they were needed and doing their best to keep valuable employees through contract shifts. – less

Technical Document Specialist II/Acting Manager (Former Employee), Jeddah, KSAMay 19, 2012
Pros: all amenities provided at no cost; housing, food, transportation, great benefits.
Cons: none of significants
Worked for many great service contractors and I have to say this organization is amongst those great ones. I would recommend employment with this company without reservation.

I personally enjoyed the association and the work environment was professional. I was able to enhance my technical proficiency and was able to get great ideas on technical document – more... editing.

The staff and management were truly caring and people oriented. Co-workers were pleasant and helpful. Overall the work was comfortable and task easy to accomplish. If there were any problems, everyone teamed together to resolve the issues. I truly enjoyed all aspects of this company. – less
