    Excellent Company

    Pros

    Excellent company to work for - open door means exactly that - no issues with leadership both at the site level or corporate level - growth potential is typical for this type of environment (government contracting) and can be very rewarding if you are motivated and communicate well with all levels. The pay is outstanding when compared to similar positions across the country, which makes it very hard to consider leaving. Being a contractor on a government site comes with up front knowledge of new contract negotiations will happen, and sometimes it doesn't work in favor of the employees but more often than not, there is nothing to worry about. Besides that, there are many other locations to consider in the Navarro portfolio if you're willing to relocate!

    Cons

    Work life balance can be challenging when working in a location far from "home base" but the beauty of the open door policy is a generous PTO policy which has never been questioned for any requests. If you don't "reside" in the local area, they offer site housing for a nominal fee. Modified work schedules allow for a person to be "home" with their families if they aren't home every night, which has been the saving grace for my continued love of my position! It's an adjustment, one that can be challenging for some - but if you can adapt to the location, the work is well worth it!

    Pros

    LOVE where I work, and whom I work for and with. Great communication with corporate headquarters for anything I need, and working closely with site management has been terrific.

    Cons

    This location is a remote government site that is difficult to get to, and requires relocation to a very small rural town, or transportation to and from the site is approx. 3.5hours each way. The option is to live in military barracks as a civilian, and that also means limited to no outside communication or connectivity while on site. That's the only drawback to working here!

    Pros

    I was new to the industry when I began working at Navarro and had a lot to learn about the work. I have found everyone around me, both managers and co-workers, to be very open, supportive, and patient with me during the learning process. The managers are passionate about the business and set an example for the rest of the company with their tremendous work ethic.

    Cons

    I would have liked to have learned more about the industry and business during training/orientation.
