    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Paycheck, friendly co-workers, benefits, ethical for the most part.

    Cons

    Turmoil, lack of leadership, no guidance on the plan for the current or future, lack of communictions, need I say more?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiding the facts and start listening to your employees who are left after the mass firings that have occured. You need to get in touch with your employees and realize that everything is not going according to your plan.

    Pros

    You keep your clearance. Learn some technical knowledge fom senior coworkers. Assisted with relocation. Employee mobility program after one year with the company.

    Cons

    Management is disconnected and outdated. Pay does not cover the cost of living in the DC area compared to other contracts. Relocation is tedious and seems like the company provides unwillingly. Contract is always on alert for required travel or near expiration with little or no notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    COLA must be taken into consideration for large metro areas. Middle management is out of touch with common practices and technology of today. Severe disconnect in communication. Career opportunities are nearly nonexistant due to pay and benefits.

    Pros

    The job and the employees I worked with were the best

    Cons

    Management appears to only want to hire direct labor employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the employees that are indirect and contributed to the company's growth. Not all direct employees will provide the level of dedication and experience that your indirect employees have provided.

    Pros

    High salary; no bonus structure. While the bonus was very low; the salary was high enough to make up for the bonus

    Cons

    employer does not care about you. the culture ...well there isn't any.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the contract is over, learn how to be a professional services company. Either bench your consultants or re-tool your consultants. The Mobility program that they provide for employee's is non-existent. The mobility analysts are never available, not helpful, its a joke!

    The performance review happens and you are not aware of your goals or development. Everything was completed for me. This was a first for me.

    Pros

    If you are a billable employee, you're ok as long as the customer is pleased with you and can maintain their budget.

    Cons

    If you are an Indirect employee, you are constantly in fear for your job. There is a mass exodus due to layoffs every couple of months, and voluntary departures in large numbers.
    No raises for employees, yet purchase of multi million dollar acquisition, and looking for more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask questions of employees other than executives. There is a lot of information available for the asking. Then take some action. Perhaps the problem isn't in the lower salaried employees but a leadership failure...continuing to cut and cut and cut yet keep the same leadership with no apparent strategy is not working.

    Pros

    Individual people are great to work with.

    Cons

    Annual organizational re-org - shuffle the deck, throw out some cards, and pick some new ones up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organization is a machine - relationship between employer and employee is strictly mercenary.
