    Pros

    Great team to work with. Generally positive environment with approachable upper management. Good projects and excellent support from management.

    Cons

    No transparency. If upper management has a path it does not translate well to the rest of the team. There is a lot happening and no one knows what anyone else is working on. Benefits are also lacking, if you play golf you still need to know the right person to get you game on.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and communicate to the team what the plan is.

    Pros

    Work environment is flexible working at the VSO (Vienna Support Office). Upper Management has a clear vision and goal for the company. The people who work in the office are great and make working here a pleasure.

    Cons

    Unless you play a lot of golf, the benefits are not very good. No year to year roll-over of sick/vacation leave. No 401k match.

    Pros

    Free golf for corporate employees. Some departments have summer hours. Telecommuting is easy and a possibility.

    Cons

    Everything. Horrible benefits, long hours (50+/week is normal), management sits on a high and mighty horse. No 401k match. Salary is extremely low. Computers are slow and there's refusal to get updated tech. Career growth is extremely slow. High turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    You should ask your employees anonymously how they feel about the corporate office so you an make changes.

    Pros

    Fun and laid back environment. Great golf perks.

    Cons

    Opportunities are scares unless you want to try your hand in the "Field". Pays lower than the market in NoVa.

    Pros

    The free golf and the ability to take time off when you want to or need to.

    Cons

    Absolutely no chance of break if you work at the 1757 golf club as and outside staff member. Long hours and no gratitude for hard work. And its worse than pulling teeth to get a pay raise. The course also fails to staff enough employes for a shift.

    Advice to Management

    Don't higher new staff with no prior experience and pay them more than your senior staff will prior work experience.


  8. As the company got bigger it lost sight of the importance of its people who helped build it.

    Pros

    Lots of new jobs although they are all low pay in the marketing and they expect a lot from people to earn it.

    Cons

    Very little time off and an extreme focus on weekends and holidays. Not much time for a personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so greedy and take care of your people and maybe you will stop losing contracts. There are a few top operations execs who should go because of personalities or mistakes they have made.

    Pros

    Golf, discount on golf equipment

    Cons

    Regional managers could care less about the assistants. No promotion opportunities. They pay the GM`s and superintendents very well but the AGM are paid below living wage.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of talking by upper management behind employees back.
