    I worked at CACI International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a large company that serves many government agencies specializing in cleared work. The overall mission of being a defense contractor is fulfilling.

    Cons

    On the government contract that I served, CACI management was horrible compared to other defense contracting companies. Managers would not communicate effectively to the government customer and would always throw their employees under the bus. They constantly stabbed employees in the back. It was a great contract in terms of the customer, the team, and the work, but everyone started to leave due to poor management. I've heard from other CACI employees who were on other contracts and their stories were comparable to mine. I think that you could have a decent career there depending on your specific contract and management team; however, I would consider other government contracting companies first. I have worked for other defense contractors where management looked out for their employees and CACI is not one of them. Beware!

    Advice to Management

    Instead of using scare tactics and intimidation, learn how to be leaders and inspire your teams. Focus on training and effective communication.

    Pros

    None. You do get off early a good amount of time, but only because noone cares what you do.

    Cons

    Terrible management and non-competitive pay. Noone cares about the work they do.

    I worked at CACI International full-time

    Pros

    If you are on a long term project, and want a 9-5 job without many challenges, great place to work.

    Cons

    Where to begin... very old fashioned in their structure and policies. They are a no frills company for sure.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in some younger, top tier forward thinking executives to bring life to the organization.

    Pros

    You get to work from home & meet new people, learn about their lives

    Cons

    Unrealistic stat goals per month, low team morale, CACI pretty much absorbed USIS and inherited the company culture. I'm a new investigator and they laid my TL off who was helping me professionally. The hours are super long and I feel like they give you more work than 40 hours per week. It's draining.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the stats and focus on quality and timeliness.

    They will take over a contract and offer lower pay. They pay half of what other companies in the area pay.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    I haven't found one yet, they have taken everything the previous company had.

    Cons

    The benefits are much less then what we previously had. Their vacation plan is average, everything else is below average.

    Advice to Management

    You are in a contracting world, if you want qualified employees then be willing to pay them at least what they are worth.


  9. Terrible management. I've only met my manager once in over a year. No support if you're on client site.

    It's a job that pays money.

    Cons

    -No time off for training. Training is only for employees that work at Caci HQ. On site employees have to stay billable. -No management interaction whatsoever. -No promotion path identified other than staying billable.

    Advice to Management

    Provide some (any) support to those on client site.

    I worked at CACI International part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The field manager was nice (but pretty clueless).

    Cons

    They are dishonest about pay. They tell you that you will get a certain amount per hour, plus an extra $3.71 per hour to cover your benefits. Well, if you do use their benefits, that 3.71 does not get used to cover your cost of the health coverage, etc...NO...it goes to CACI to cover THEIR cost of your benefits. And then you still pay the full premium on top of that, deducted from your pay. You will have small paychecks with them if you use the benefits....very small. You can only use the CACI-provided computer for OPM things. Everything else must be done on your personal computer, like timesheet, expenses, accessing company e-mail, etc. If you do TDY, you have to bring two computers!!!! And they do not have a website or portal for investigators, so most things are done manually. You cannot print needed forms, etc -- you have to request them and they are mailed to you. If you do a local TDY that is over 100 miles, they make you get a rental car so they don't have to pay miles. They say they are all about quality, but not anymore. It is all about revenue and production. So much for quality background investigations. You are running for points. People at level III are usually working off the clock to make their weekly points. Life is too short to be donating your time to a company that could care less about you. USIS was SO much better in all ways. OPM fired the wrong contractor. They should have kept the best one they had.

    Advice to Management

    They would not care.
