Statistical Analyst (Current Employee) – Rosslyn, VA – March 7, 2016
Good company to work for with good company perks. Management is ok at responding to whatever you may need and a typical day results into working hard and always doing your best. The co-workers were good to be around.

Its a great company to work for and is expanding! Has doubled in size since I have been there and its been less than a year. I get tons of over time.

If you are walking in the door with minimal experience you will most likely be directed to a staffing agency and, if employed, be a temp worker for a minimum of 3 months. Once hired on permanently (in some cases taking up to 1 year,) you may expect to see a roughly 10% raise, vacation pay based on how long you were a temp, immediate eligibility for insurance and 401k.
The production floor is pretty clean, well lighted... no feeling like working in a dungeon. There is no A/C on the floor, and people will fight over the available fans on hot days. It seems to be heated.
There is a nice big lunch room, however the vending setup is a bit funky. Many microwaves, toaster, and fridge available.
Most people are friendly. There are a LOT of immigrant, and younger workers. This does create some issues with training people. You either have a communication barrier to try to bridge, or you get a "wise" kid who won't pay attention.
Line-leads, and team-leads, are pretty much useless workers... they are somehow randomly picked. Some hang around and milk overtime. You can't get them to help out when things are behind, yet you get complained to if things are going slower than they should be. Others just don't care what goes on, seem to disappear when needed.
Management/"higher ups" seem pretty good, however some of them are a bit clueless on some matters.
Engineersmore... come up with solutions that usually don't help problems until the 23rd try. You can explain something til your blue in the face, but they still come up with what they think is best...which never works, and you wind up giving up on whatever the issue is.
The owner makes his rounds every now and then; seems like a good guy, though he's a stickler for rules...Don't smoke anywhere except in your car, and wear your company provided attire!
Pay rate is average. Overtime is varying. There are many "opportunities" for advancement... if you ever hear back on any bids/applications to them.
Overall, its a better place than most, nowadays. Could use a bit more direction in some areas though.less
Decent benefits, clean environment.
Need people that understand that it's a production floor. You need to make a GOOD, WORKING product.
