ECHELON Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
ECHELON, originally a secret government code name, is a surveillance program (signals intelligence/SIGINT collection and analysis network) operated by the United States with the aid of four other signatory states to the UKUSA Security Agreement: Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, also known as the Five Eyes. Created in the late 1960s to monitor the military and diplomatic communications.
Lucas Matney wrote for Techcrunch about ECHELON in August 2015:
"It is now abundantly clear that the program exists, but what is unclear is what that means. PRISM and XKeyscore certainly represent a more shocking invasion of the information we have digitally presented, but ECHELON shows us that the privacy of our communications has indeed always been under attack."
Tenant Advocate (Former Employee) says"There is an endless set of deferred maintenance tasks for substandard housing! Cons: Too many to list!"
Addetto sorveglianza notturna. (Former Employee) says"Lavoro eseguito da solo come addetto a sorveglianza notturna.Clleghi eccellenti.Esperienza breve da poter commentare adeguatamente. Cons: esperienza molto ridotta."
Hammerman (Former Employee) says"I was recently hired for the position of a Hammerman which I thought the job was good but unfortunately what was explained to me over the phone verses coming to the job site is two different descriptions. Upon arriving at the hotel which is provided by Echelon Staffing, I was introduced to the owners of the agency who told me I am to comply with the pay reduction from $30/hr to $20/hr and in order to receive the increase of pay I had to put 720 safe work hours into their investment. They explained that all hours work is straight time. Not time in a half after 40. The contract signed said otherwise for which I explained to them it's a breach of contract. One owner of the Echelon Staffing replied, "I'm a former attorney and by no means the contract is contingent therefore the contract you signed was an offer letter." What they tell you over the phone and email doesn't translate into reality. There's plenty of Hammermen who have quit this why they're still trying to find workers. They tell you what you to know then when you arrive you're cornered into a circle. Cons: Hotel is paid from your wages, No time in a half after 40 hours, Per diem is set to $20/daily."

confidental (Former Employee) says"There is no chain of command so everyone does pretty much what they want here and there is no support from corporate on the management of my property,. There is no confidentiality and if you contact corporate, everything you said goes right back to the on-site management and it never gets addressed which makes the manager not like you because they feel like you were trying to get them into trouble. Pretty much if you do not fit in the the clique whether it because of your race or not wanting to play the games that are played here, you are talked about and accused of things behind your back but management never talks to you about it. They just drop rude, disrespectful comments but don't address it to where you can say whether you did or did not say or do it. I have also been shorted on my check more times than I can prove but know for sure of two times because I started taking a picture of the computer screen every time I clock out at the end of each day and of any on-call hours I have to submit on paper."

V. wealthy Board members don't seem to care .."
Current Employee - Software Developer says"I have been working at Echelon Corporation full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Worst company I've ever worked for. A total bore to work at and you can just tell employees currently here just don't care anymore. I give us till the end of the year. How this company is still around is a big mystery to me."

California says"I worked at Echelon Corporation Cons: The present management is really just sucking the life out of their performance contracts. They no longer interact with employees.

Former Employee - Engineer says"I worked at Echelon Corporation full-time for more than 5 years Cons: With the exception of constant cost and personnel cutting to maintain cash, the CEO has done nothing but create negative value for the company and yet the Board continues to pay him way too much and in fact keep him employed. In my view this is actionable by the investors. If they get rid of the CEO then it becomes their problem and the board just doesn't care enough."
