This company was an utter disappointment as a whole. Management was distant and had no clue on what was going on with their employees. On site management was unhelpful and rarely gave assistance or guidance when needed. Some military members treated contractors like trash and verbally assaulted contractors in front of management. HR was unhelpful and rarely gave detailed explanations to employees about basic topics. There was no overtime or compensation for working weekends except for "flex time", which was an unpaid day off. When reporting complaints or issues with other employees or military members, HR and upper mgmt did little to abate issues. The employees who were directed to undertake the most responsibility and tasked with heading up sections were not given lead employee pay or recognition. There were no basic safety implementations for employees like steel-toed shoes or required health surveillances. While we were told that employees were allotted one lab animal conference to go to, we were never allowed to go (or previously, had to use our own leave). There's little support for employees who wish to get certified in lab animal science. The pay is not on par with other contracting companies in the area, including contractors on the same campus. The organization of this contractor is terrible and the leadership is very weak. I would absolutely not recommend this company.
