Dispatcher (Current Employee) –  Fort Meade, MDMarch 14, 2018
Good company to work for that hires people with disabilities and veterans with disabilities. They have a partnership with Ability One that allows people with disabilities and veterans with disabilities to work on sites that are on military installations.
Pros
Good for people with disabilities and veterans with disabilities.
Cons
No short term disability plan, vision, dental, and health should be better.

Their mission is great, their leadership is lacking, and vision is blind
Vocational HR (Former Employee) –  Bremerton, WADecember 1, 2016
Great idea for a company that was founded on helping employ people with disabilities. Was taken over by incumbents who lost the vision of the founder. The new leadership is weak and self centered. There is no future unless your in with the good old boys (the three in charge are all Navy buddies). They do not value their own mission statement, lack of integrity is all over the place.

The good employees who want to make a difference are forced out or treated like dirt. They promote the bad and disregard those that want to help. I left before I was completely destroyed by their lack of leadership.

In 2016, they lost so many good employees, I had to follow them. So sad, because there are so many people with disabilities that need a good mentoring and vocational employment opportunity, not a business that exploits their disability for their own profit.
Pros
You help others succeed
Cons
You put up with back stabbing, minipulative leadership and lack of support.

custodian (Former Employee) –  Bremerton, WAJuly 11, 2016
A typical day at work was fast paced with never ending obstacles that were enjoyable to overcome
I learned time management skills
Management was not really involved, minimal interaction
Co-workers were ok as long as you did not involve your personal life
The hardest part about that job was the heat in the summer
I enjoyed pleasing customers the most
Pros
Bonuses in December
Cons
Management was very little involved
