    Pros

    The coworkers I had were amazing, and a pleasure to work with. That's about it.

    Cons

    Dishonest management, overworked, value workaholics over family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest to your employees. Even if it hurts. They appreciate it.

    Pros

    The first line supervisors can be very easy to work with.

    Cons

    With the loss of work for USIS, CACI has become money hungry. Most of the new employees make more money than the legacy staff. Management and HR are not interested in providing rectification. Opportunities for growth were promised for legacy staff, but this is only if you know someone or if you are willing to take a pay cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bad business practices and treat legacy staff properly by ensuring equal pay and benefits. Promote investigators with pay raises in new jobs, not cuts.

    Pros

    Before the huge influx of employees from USIS CACI was a very good company

    Cons

    Many legacy employees were encouraged to apply for positions due to the expansion of the contract. Many qualified employees were not even interviewed but instead CACI picked up former USIS management. It's a shame that CACI did not promote within first but they looked outside the organization. There are problems already starting with these former USIS managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the influx of investigators CACI has not increased the salaries of their legacy employees. To me this is a slap in the face and will be seeking employment else where. CACI will be losing many qualified and loyal employees if something is not done. You bring your concerns to management and nothing is done. The excuses you keep getting is that they have a great wealth of knowledge...but my response is if they are so good why did they lose the contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be required to complete management and communication skill training.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, independence, extra money from mileage pay

    Cons

    Production demands are over and above what they should be, causing an immense amount of stress. Overtime is discouraged, but almost necessary to consistently meet demands. The pay is grossly inadequate for the amount of work you need to put in on this job. There is no career progression track from this job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to keep professional, skilled employees, you must pay them more, period. I might stick with this job if paid approximately twice as much as it does, but as it is, I will be one of the estimated 90% of investigators who move one after three years or less.

    Pros

    Best part of this company is that you get plenty of time off, freedom in setting and adjusting your schedule, and management is reluctant to fire anyone, instead they work hard to try to make you successful at your position. Also, health benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Opportunity for advancement is nonexistent. Pay is pathetic. At least in our division, the work is mind-numbingly boring (I've heard it referred to as a GIS sweatshop by an outsider familiar with our work). Tasks are so specific that you aren't able to receive training beyond your immediate role, making you only qualified for the job you have which is not transferrable to almost any other company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The nature of the work is changing and our current setup is unsustainable, completely revamp the GIS division making it smaller and able to accomplish more diverse tasks across the GIS realm. Nothing short of a complete overhaul will solve the problems.

    Pros

    Pay Check, Keep Security Clearance

    Cons

    Lack of corporate focus, disconnection between management and employes, massive company layoffs with no clear plan regarding growing business and maintaining client satisfaction.,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CACI used to be a recognized leader in providing skilled and competent analysts to meet client needs. However, a focus on quarterly numbers has led to a gutted workforce and management that is now unable to sustain current and win new business.

    I have been working at CACI International full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    CACI used to be a well-regarded company. I like the people I work with, who try very hard to do the right thing and maintain a positive attitude despite the workload, cutbacks, and expectations that are not based in reasonable accounting for hours and efforts.

    Cons

    CACI used to have the feel of a small company where everyone knows your name, even as it moved past $3B and had the heft to swing against the larger competition. Leadership of the past 12-18 months has changed that. While they've shifted resources to make some sorely needed fixes to the IT infrastructure and a few other areas, the overall tone is one that doesn't foster teamwork, trust, or the venerable CACI values. The company has gone through at least three major reorganizations with hundreds of personnel let go. In a down-turning market, some of that is to be expected, however it was managed so poorly as to have damaged on-going operations and relationships with our customers. Senior leadership is so focused on the quarterly numbers they've ceased actually leading.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is poor, starting at the top. There is a difference between a goal and an actual strategy. Numbers alone don't equal either one. I no longer refer friends and colleagues to CACI, as they would have little job security, benefit from no downward loyalty, and have few real opportunities for advancement, official pronouncements regardless. The "climate survey" was laughable, with options that ranged from "fine" to "great", but no room for real feedback.
