It's Island Life
Accounts Receivable Accountant (Former Employee) –  Marshall IslandsNovember 27, 2017
It's island life, island time, and island culture. Very laid back, relaxed, and not stressful. I love that type of work environment, but it is not for everybody. Very small community; not a lot of choices in what you eat, do, or who you interact with.
Pros
You live on a tropical island!
Cons
To some - you live on a secluded, hard-to-reach island.

Great place to work because the culture and work is very interesting
Software and Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  Huntsville, ALSeptember 12, 2017
It is what you make it. If you apply yourself and dedicate yourself to the mission you can greatly succeed and gain a large amount of experience. The hardest part is supporting missions, but the most rewarding part is supporting missions. This is because you are working on something you can directly see the result of instantly.

an adventure
Supervisor - Configuration & Data Management (Current Employee) –  Huntsville, ALApril 6, 2015
Kwajalein - a small island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. A great place to save money, but it is very isolated and not many places to spend money. The perks of living on a tropical island out weigh the isolation and no where to spend money (thank goodness for Amazon). It would be high on the list for a return, but medically disqualified.

Huntsville - as with Kwaj, it's a very good place to live and work. Both places have great people to work for and work with. As with all work places, there are very good workers, and the opposite spectrum.
Pros
Kwaj perks, free food, housing, utilities, and now high speed internet. Company paid plane ticket one time per year.
Cons
Kwaj is isolated and it cost big bucks to fly back to the states.

Unfullfilling job no promotion potential.
Alternate COMSEC Custodian (Current Employee) –  Bldg 1008 KwajaleinMarch 22, 2015
I am only busy when something goes wrong or during inventories. I have had more hands on equipment than in previous employment. These is an almost total lack of management involvement and oversight. Co-workers are great. The hardest part of the job is being around people who have been on this island too long. The most enjoyable part is off duty SCUBA diving and snorkeling.
Pros
Tropical island
Cons
pay is too low

This was a great experience but and extremely difficult job. My typical work day would start at 0530 and not end until 2130. The money was great and I was able to climb out of debt.

Great Place to Work, Great Company
Human Resources Supervisor, CONUS (Former Employee) –  Huntsville, ALNovember 13, 2012
Worked for Kwajalein Range Services for three years. Great people to work with and for. The culture on Kwajalein alone is unique in all of the world.

This is an Army contractor, and the government has been squeezing the turnip over the years to keep costs low. If you're wanting to get rich, look elsewhere. If you want a unique life experience in one of the most beautiful and remote tropical islands in the world, look no further.

Bechtel/Lockheed-Martin run this together, and it's a great combination of corporate cultures, values, and management.
Pros
absolutely unique.
Cons
it's a long way from the u.s., no taco bells
