Program Manager (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – August 24, 2015
I developed a great relationship with the owner of Colsa Corporation. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape and politics, but this expected of a large company. The most enjoyable part of the job alongside my colleagues and learning from them. The started to get crowded as the company grew and it was more difficult to get to know the new people. There was a lot of variety in I did each day, ranging from the monotonous to new projects that were challenging an exciting.

Graphics/Public Affairs Specialist II (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – August 12, 2015
Working for COLSA is "at will" meaning you can leave or they can let you go without reason. That being said, you take your chances working there. I have had good co-workers and not-so-good workers. My typical day revolves around helping out our team. It could involve designing a brochure or poster for a trade show or designing graphics, photos or video for a presentation. There is usually ample time to finish a project. I've had the chance to learn about all types of software and hardware. Most enjoyable part of the job is seeing a finished project that everyone appreciates.
great benefits, company functions, educational assistance

Systems Analyst (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – May 22, 2014
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. 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.

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, AL – December 23, 2013
I like the challenge that I got when I first came on board with Colsa.

I also learned how to generate barcodes and do asset tracking and keep logs of equipment while supporting the customer and ensuring all inventory is accurate with great detail.
