Followed very specific safety rules.
Assembler (Former Employee), Camden, ARJuly 8, 2014
I only worked there for a year and was laid-off. I was called back but was already working. This was a good job. Safety was a high priority there. These are government jobs and after termination we are not allowed to discuss our jobs.

SENIOR PRODUCTION PLANNER (Former Employee), DALLAS TXMay 13, 2013
Pros: a paycheck for managers who do not know anything
Cons: upper and mid management
THIS NOT A COMPANY FOR A PERSON THAT THINKS FOR THEMSELVES. MANAGEMENT KNOWS EVERYTHING AND IS NEVER WRONG. MID MANAGERS LIE AND GET AWAY WITH IT, BECAUSE UPPER MANAGEMENT ALLOWS IT. THIS COMPANY WILL FAIL BECAUSE OF THE CURRENT LEADERS. YOU HAVE TO BE IN THE CLICK TO SURVIVE. ACCOUNTING ALSO RUNS THE SHOW AND TELLS WHAT AND HOW PRODUCTION WILL RUN. – more... YOU HAVE PEOPLE IN ACCOUNTING THAT HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT TAKES TO RUN A PRODUCTION COMPANY. – less

YOU ARE GOING TO HATE THIS PLACE!
Technician (Former Employee), DallasApril 13, 2013
Pros: its a job
Cons: too many to list
Low pay, unqualified co-workers, poor benefits, and management totally lost. Keep looking for another job for there is nothing here for you.

Work hours 8+ if you like OT most employees run 60+ hours a week but just sit around and talk. They are always behind and rushing to catch up, not inductive to a quality product. Product has many design faults – more... and management won't spend the money or time to fix them and engineering is too busy to correct them.

Management still runs the company like a small garage shop and won't change. All their decisions are based on lowest cost. They hire unqualified people (low pay) and expect the knowledgeable workers to train them, in this field it can't be done.

Over 80% of your co-workers are asian and don't speak English very well and don't understand the technology at all. This all leads to a poor result in quality and operation of the product. High failure rate and customer returns are normal.

And they just had a massive layoff, ~30%, they tried to expand too fast, gambled and the employees lost. They RIF'd the qualified people and kept the unqualified, lowest cost.

Good luck...... – less

Going No Place Fast
Buyer/Planner (Former Employee), Rockford, ILMarch 27, 2013
Pros: you
I have worked for BVR Tchnologies for many years. I really thought new management was going to be the answer to help us advance into the 21st century. Instead they treat the people like dirt, constant back stabbing and lies by upper manaagement. The original BVR employees are a GREAT group of people, but unfortunately work daily in fear of thier jobs. – more... If the operations manager does not like you you will be targeted and our life will become unbearable.

If you are considering employement with this organization, make sure they tell you about the 3 weeks that they will be on shut down without pay unless you have the vacation time to cover it. That is week of Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day!!!

Welcome Aboard!!! – less

Company management needs to learn that their employees are knowledgable and acknowledging that will go a long way
Quality Inspector (Current Employee), Brea, CAFebruary 4, 2013
The company provide good health benefits but when it comes to appreciating their employees for all the hours they put it is they are lacking. Management needs to lead by example. They will be able to meet customer needs better if they are able to understand the process it takes to get parts built, inspected and shipped.

Great SW Service place to work
Technical Project Manager (TPM) (Current Employee), Platteville, WISeptember 22, 2012
Pros: flexible work schedule, understanding management staff, very organized with well defined processes, incredibly intelligent staff
Cons: services branch that does not have a lot of experience on firm fixed contracts, located in a somewhat secluded location
This is a great place to work. The hours are flexible where the core hours are between 0830 and 1600. Probably the most well organizaed organization I have worked in for the past 14 years.

The management team is very knowledgeable and understanding. The management team is very willing to work around individuals personal obligations.

The hardest part – more... of working at this particular location is that it is a services company and on many occassions the customers want the company to do a lot more than what is on contract. – less

Various, mostly Buggy Driver. (Former Employee), Middle WallopDecember 16, 2012
Pros: good holiday benefits.
Cons: few future prospects.
I worked for this company as part of an agency, working shifts from 06:00-14:00 and 14:00-22:00.
My main duties were to provide the production staff with anything that was needed for the assembly of defence flares.
Because of the nature of the explosive substances that were being used it was quite a high pressure environment, with a need for the speed, – more... efficiency and constant awareness of the potential danger. – less
