My favorite place to work thus far
UUV Operator (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 5, 2018
I loved working for this company. I was in a fast paced ever changing environment. My coworkers were intuitive, supportive, and fun to work with. It was certainly a team environment who used the strengths of individuals and made amazing achievements and met deadlines for projects.
The environment was the best I could ever ask for. Mostly sunny and warm. Winters could be cold on the water, but the company provided gear to all employees including a float coat, boots, clothes, everything needed to do the job safely and efficiently.
The best part of the job was the benefits, there was many times where I had to visit specialists and doctors for a surgery and I had free range of who I could go to, and had great coverage.
There are only a few things I would change. The cost of living far outweighs the salary earned if you have student loans. If you don't have debt, then is easy by living with roommates or working a second job to live in San Diego within a reasonable commute (1hr commute in the PM). Most of the people on base chose to live out of the city limits, and spend between 1.5-2 hours commuting home. But almost everyone has a family with kids, and living outside the city is far more economical.
Second is management. I have watched more of my coworkers quit and leave over lack of support by management. Peraton has an incredibly high turn over.
Challenging work environment, skilled crew, great team mentality
