What do our employees say about Barrios?

"The effective implementation of an open door policy allows me to routinely interact with management allowing for prompt and honest feedback on my performance that keeps me on track and aligned with company goals in the performance of my daily responsibilities."

"I feel like I don't have to choose between my work or my family. I feel like I can succeed at work and not miss the important things on the personal side. That motivates me."

"I have always respected the company as a whole. They have always strived to make everyone feel like they count. Sandy Johnson seems fair and is personable and so is everyone I've ever had contact with at Corporate. I feel like the work I do is important to the overall success of the Program."

"Of all Subcontract companies I've worked for while on NASA contracts, Barrios is the only company that I feel has ever truly been concerned about employee welfare and has been open and honest to managers and personnel alike."

"Exciting work, strong technical team, positive working environment, and the feeling that those around you care about you both personally and professionally."

"I am challenged each day and have the opportunity to create the future. I also have some great coworkers which I learn a lot from."

"My manager helps me learn and grow by trusting me to be self-directed for the projects he assigns to me. Sometimes I have to spend time educating myself on the technologies and best practices involved in a project and I never feel pressured to "get back to work" because he realizes that by learning, I am working."

"Barrios allows me the opportunity to be independently creative. Management inspires, motivates and challenges me to exceed my job requirements. Everyone is treated with dignity and respect."

"I feel that what we do is part of something extremely important to our society and our growing search for knowledge. My job is like going to school on a daily basis and getting paid for it."

"When I joined Barrios after working for a much bigger company for many years, I was apprehensive about how well things would be administered. I was pleasantly surprised at how well procedures were codified, and how efficiently matters were managed."

"Barrios performs at a high standard and efficiently
because everyone believes in the core values of the company and the CEO is actively a part of that. From the CEO down, everyone truly works together."

"Being able to flex time helps employees meet other obligations and creates a family-friendly environment."

"I appreciate that Barrios is a small company where we can meet and talk candidly with the President and upper HR at many events and that the company tries to arrange social events worth attending. This compares favorably to other contractors where people seem to get lost in the shuffle."
