Satelite training facility for chemical agent incinerator plant
Training Specialist (Former Employee) –  Anniston AlabmaSeptember 28, 2012
Work day was 40+ hours teaching in formal classroom environment, and course development to ensure information was current.
Hardest part of job was management; inflexible, uncommunicative, and unable to see beyond a military bearing. Co-workers shared the same assessment, and this made uis a close-knit group watching out for one another. Thoroughly enjoyed the classroom environment and learned many new skills and knowledge. However, the course development work was very frustrating in that more emphasis was placed on format and structure than on the material accuracy.
Pros
permanent, close to home, most weekends free
Cons
very low salary and benefits, way below industry standard was, took nearly a $30k loss in accepting the position.

We worked on critical ground support hardware that had some very hazardous energy to do work or was very lethal if accidentally released.

I enjoyed the worked we performed for NASA at Kennedy Space Center. The work gave you a sense of accomplishment and meaning, knowing that we prevented potential accidents and improved the reliability of the systems on and around Pad 39.

Government Contracting/Training company that provides Employee training as well!
Project Assistant (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MDOctober 27, 2013
The major plus of working for General Physics was definitely the fact that as a training company, they provided a large library of learning materials that were at the disposal of staff looking to grow their skills as well. A stable company that seemed to promote from within and have decent management.
Pros
free training

very little fun in the workplace
Training Specialist/Technical Writer (Current Employee) –  Richmond, KentuckyMarch 7, 2013
Work in a cube, very little input from management. Work with a mixed group of people, which offers plenty of oppurtunities to learn. The hardest part of the job is working with very little direction, when the role involves a lot of structure.
Best part of the job is working 4 10's so always a three day weekend
Cons
lack of leadership at times
