Great place to work
Invoice Coordinator (Current Employee), Dallas, TXMarch 23, 2015
This is a fast paced and friendly environment. You deal with customers on a daily basis along with the technicians. The benefits are really good, you don't have a waiting period. It is a lot to learn. You make daily phone calls to other major companies and city halls explaining to them their charges for their services. Overall a great place to work.

Great place to work, just never took off like it was promised
Test Technician (Former Employee), Killeen, TXFebruary 22, 2015
Pros: very convent to home, great company to be apart of over all
Cons: people had no respect for production base work
A typical day at work was laid back mostly waiting for someone to put out what was going on for the day.

There wasn't much to learn because most of the job fields there was set and no one want it to take the time to really train you up on anything they felt you didn't need to know.

Management was a shuffle board, in a 2 1/2yr period so many changes in management until nobody wanted to respect management unless it costed them a job.

The hardest part of the job was worrying if there would be a job to come to work to because of the difficultly of management.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the idea of learning from others or thinking they would understand the concept of teamwork
since we was all mostly veterans

SENIOR MECHANICAL DESIGNER (Current Employee), Houston, TXJanuary 14, 2015
Pros: relatively flexible hours and good environment
Cons: lack of training and history of lay-offs when oil prices fall
I really like that there is a range of times I'm allowed to start the work day. I'm usually left to do my job without someone constantly looking over my shoulder. There is only rarely tension in the office and most of the time everyone is pretty jovial. There is also a strong emphasis on family and understanding from management when family issues arise. Unfortunately, there is little training offered.

The company began as Stewart & Stevenson; bought by Armor Holdings; bought by BAE Systems. It was a great place to work. The comraderie was terrific.
SECRETARY TO SITE PRESIDENT (Former Employee), Sealy, TXOctober 27, 2014
Pros: great benefits, profit sharing and bonuses.
Cons: the plant closing was the worst part of my job; i did not want my job to end.
1. A typical day at work: My day began by downloading new contract orders via a government website; I would also download all EDI orders. I would get the matching folder from the sales personnel and enter the orders into the system. I matched the original sales order against the information in the new contract for accuracy. After entering all orders and passing along the folder to the Planner, I would begin researching all contract orders that shipped the night before against the customer due date. I created and maintained the On-Time Delivery Report for the department, branch and government officials. I would then download spreadsheets from the government for contracts they suspected were late deliveries; I would fill in all of the information and submit to managers and the government for possible credits. I would then turn my attention to the spreadsheet that I created and maintained for lost contract awards. I would research why our company lost the contract and searched for ways our company might improve our quotes. Every report was due the first day of every month, and I was never late for any of my reports.
2. What I learned: I learned that every single job at our facility made the difference in success or loss.
3. Management was always supportive and open to new ideas and always asked for our input. Management was always willing to help us learn new skills.
4. I cannot say enough good things regarding my co-workers. Everyone took on the team approach and we all helped one another, when needed.
5. The hardest part of my job were "the not knowing" issues according to business strategies or learning certain software queries. 6. The most enjoyable part of my job was the parties or picnics at the branch. We had a lot of terrific cooks and we even created our own cookbook.
