Company Culture

I really enjoy working with my team, and everyone supports each other no matter what.

Support from management

Overall, I mostly get everything I need to do my job well.

Teamwork

We are always encouraged to be honest and direct, no matter who you are talking to.

Freedom to work independently

For the most part, we get to work as a team or individually. However, there are times we get micro-managed.

Internal Communication

Sometimes the communication channel is a little slow, so we don't get updates as often or fast as we should.

Gender Equality

Overall, my organization treats us as equals. However, there are times when we don't get a certain job because we are female.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Our older employees are treated very nice, with well benefits and very much respect for being with the company for so long.

Career Development

We are always encouraged to get promoted, do training, and do whatever we can do earn career progression.

Overall compensation for your work

I don't get a high salary, but my organization levels it out well with great benefits.

Office / Work Environment

I am not always in the best setting for work, but overall it is comfortable to complete my job.

Environmental Friendliness

My organization places a lot of focus on recycling and keeping the environment safe and clean.

Work-Life Balance

The work-life balance can definitely be improved. My organization doesn't put family or personal life first.

Company Image

I am always proud to be part of my organization.

Job Security

I am very well-respected in my position, and I am not worried about getting replaced.

Handicapped Accessibility

We do not have a lot of employees with disabilities, so handicap accessible work areas are not very common in my organization.

Workplace Safety

I have a job where workplace violence or accidents happen a lot. It is not always the safest.

Challenging Work

My work offers great challenge, but I love accomplishing a hard mission and being proud of a job well done.

Inclusive / Diverse

Diversity in our organization is well-respected, regardless of race, gender, or ethnicity. Various ideas and opinions are also welcome.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think our organization should offer all jobs to both males and females. Sometimes females are withheld from specific job training events because they aren't seen by management as being capable of doing specific jobs. I think my organization should stop being so diversified and open it up to everybody.

What I like about the company

I get to travel for free, and I have seen various parts of the world. I get great benefits for myself as well as my family. I have been offered free training and resources for me to get promoted fast in my organization. My team always encourages each other to do well, and we have a great overall attitude in my organization.

What I dislike about the company

I would say the higher-up management needs to stop micro-managing so much with the lower management employees. We are trained to handle all issues at our level, and we get paid to do that.

Support from management

There is little to no support from management

Teamwork

There is dishonesty and backstabbing within management, it crosses the line to line employees and the employees in turn treat each other the same.

Freedom to work independently

My team in particular runs with little to no help from management

Internal Communication

This is the single biggest opportunity for growth in my company. Clear and consistent communication is 100% lacking

Gender Equality

There are many women in positions of authority throughout the hotel.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I can not speak to this

Career Development

While there are opportunities for advancement, pay is well below similar positions in the private sector, therefore generally not good opportunities

Overall compensation for your work

For the job I do, I am paid well above industry standard. That changes as you ascend.

Office / Work Environment

Facilities are constantly updated

Environmental Friendliness

They keep trying to implement recycling procedures but quickly dismiss them as it takes extra manpower

Work-Life Balance

They do a lot within their power to make sure employees are accommodated to take care of home needs

Company Image

I am proud to serve those that serve, however, my immediate chain of command is not one that inspired pride

Job Security

I do not feel as though the position itself will go anywhere anytime soon

Handicapped Accessibility

This is an absolute must

Workplace Safety

Safety is extremely important

Challenging Work

The work itself is not challenging at all, overcoming obstacles to do the work is the challenge

Inclusive / Diverse

There is an extremely diverse cross-

Suggestions for improvement

  • The management for our department is poor at best. The biggest impact with the least amount of effort would be to hire enough managers and line employees to be fully staffed. This would allow for even lackluster managers to have enough support to at least be effective.

What I like about the company

I have had many opportunities to meet and serve some of our country's service heroes and their families and the is the best aspect of my job. Despite poor management, I work in team that handles daily business well and brings guests back.

What I dislike about the company

Honesty, trust, respect, communication and support for line employees are the biggest opportunities for growth with my employer.

Inclusive / Diverse

work Science and Tech for next generation power/energy solutions for emerging applications before applications are thought of

Suggestions for improvement

  • Force mentoring while the older subject matter experts are still in place. Ensure funding for inhouse research - even it does not result in working hardware. Great learning method. Incorporate training in Universities paid to address Military solution sets. Masters thesis should be tied to hardware solutions for tactical needs. Great for producing papers, working with real needs, etc.

What I like about the company

I have worked for the Army for 37 years. I have designed, developed, fabricated power multiple power solutions (alternators/power systems/microgrids) that have transitioned to procurement and are used by soldiers. I had amazing mentors. Learned how to design and MAKE inhouse power components. So I am better able to direct others how to do things, what to look for during failures. I am the tech lead to determine what the future power system might look like. Focus is science/technology, research/development and transition to program of records responsible for procurement of results. Amazing place to work - pay is less than outside...but I am never out of work, have amazing health insurance, great life insurance, matched retirement, and opportunity to come back as a paid annuitant once retired. My lifestyle is comfortable. I am able to travel when and where I want, when I want. I don't have to think what I can or can't buy. I am not a millionaire - but I live a comfortable life. Sent 2 kids to private schools (k - 12) and paid for colleges (BS, MS, PhD) for TWO with no issue. Looking forward to comfortable retirement in DC area.

What I dislike about the company

We hire just anyone - skill sets are not what they once were. Personalities of new employees do not allow for comfortable teaming or mentoring. It is a factor of millennial vs baby boomer. It will be interesting to see how well the younger people fare now once the retirements begin in the next 5 years
