Unprofessional, hostile, abusive

Program Manager at Ft. Bragg never instructed and did not know any foreign language. She never offered positive reinforcement and only found fault. She was rude and aggressive and created a hostile work environment. If she could, she would find a way to retaliate aganist an applicant of staff member.
Pros
The company's headquarters were excellent and responsive
Cons
The Program Manager at Ft. Bragg, was unprofessional and knows nothing about effective, modern management techniques

People without education or morals
Instructor (Former Employee) –  Fort Bragg, NCSeptember 28, 2018
They are not worried about the quality of professionals that they hire, they only want the Government money. The Manager is a phony woman, without character, who does not have professionalism. If you are a qualified professional, you will not be there for a long time, because they only want ignorant people without personalites that they can manipulate. The days that the school is closed because of bad weather, they do not pay the employees, even though the money is already in their account. They will not stay there for a long time, because the Army is already seeing the chaos that they are bringing to the language school.

Review about Yorktown.
EXECUTIVE ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Current Employee) –  Huntsville, ALJuly 11, 2018
Typical day at work is good. I have good management and the work place culture is great. The hardest part of the job is not being informed and the most enjoyable part of the job is all the people.

Deceiving Management.

Great Company

Pros
Company leadership and support staff
Cons
Government contracts (temporary)

This company is not loyal

This company is not loyal to its employees. Employees or contractors are easily replaced and their is little job security. The work load can be excessive.

Stay away!!!
Field Analyst (Former Employee) –  Huntsville, ALJuly 7, 2017
Culture sucks and management is rude. Pays you based on 40 hour work weeks but expects you to work 50-60 hours a week. They lowball pay but expects you to work your butt off. Management is dilisuional and it wouldn't surprise me if they end up on the verge of bankruptcy again. Don't take a job there and expect a personal life. Executives are rude to employees and it won't take long for their terrible reputation to get out.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything you could imagine
