Company provided flexible hours but when I started using flexible hours, used another contracted employee to observe and report who was not a manager or supervisor on my attendance and they were lying to management.

The pay is too low for overseas work, shift work, and possibly working 2 weeks straight, with no days off. I changed apartments 3 times. The medical process to qualify is unprofessional and a headache.
Pros
Nice apartments.
Cons
Pay, work hours, no days off.

Worked with some very talented people in photography, video, design. We were contractors on the base and management changed every two years. It was difficult at times to adjust.

Leadership was reactionary and never instituted plans of action to meet long term needs. Micromanagement was an issue. Middle management was not able to make decisions on small day to day issues without conferring with the parent company. This would cause delays in rectifying small simple problems.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
Senior leaderships ability to manage resources

Typical work day can be from 8 hours - 16 hours. It's a lot of field work, hard work, but its very rewarding. My co-workers are great, we are all like minded individuals.The hardest part of this job can be the amount of time spent out in the field. There are some long, hot, and physically exhausting days.The over management of this company is great. I am not based near the head quarters however, the people at the head quarters are all easy to get ahold of and email response time is quick.

Working at five rivers services in kabul and bagram, Afghanistan has to be one of the best jobs i have worked. Human resource department made sure everything was taken care of as far as; pay, leave, benefits and anything else that benefited the employees. The immediate staff that supervised me was motivating and willing to help you advance. The workplace was actually a place for advancement, i worked in a consolidated area where the Network engineers, Systems engineers, information assurance analyst, and facility control officers conducted out the missions of the day. There was always room to learn being that you are in the same facility and area as you counterparts. This was by the far the best civilian deployment/job i have had thus.
Pros
Benefits, and staff
Cons
long work hours, limited break

Employees are not respected or appreciated for what they do. Management is ever-changing and inconsistent.
