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

    Pros

    great pay, good work, lots of growth and career opportunities

    Cons

    Work ethics are questionable at this specific location. Did not follow through on employment agreements.

    Advice to Management

    investigate behavior of contract and all levels of personnel, because the end results may harm you more.

    I have been working at CACI International (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great mentoring program, and good opportunities for training - especially if you're interested in project management. Decent benefits - but these are getting worse over time (of course, this is where the company cuts when it tightens the belt - at the employee level), but they are still decent.

    Cons

    Like someone else mentioned, "Every employee is just a number and if your contract ends so does your employment. There is very little effort to help place employees after they lose coverage regardless of whether they are a performer. " There are few opportunities for communications professionals, so it's especially heinous when your contract is on the verge of ending. Not necessarily a great place long-term, especially if you're not management. Turnover is a constant problem where I'm at, and I can see why it is - because you're a commodity that is easily tossed aside. It's terrible on a yearly basis to wonder if your next option will be exercised or not, and then at the end of the option years have to look for a job. And, if you have a difficult client, the "client is always right" and you have to put up whatever abuse or shenanigans they dish up. I get this thinking from the CACI perspective - AND, I see where taken to the extreme many of the people who work hard to bring the contract home put up with miserable work environments. And there's not much thanks along with that. Government contracting has changed - contracts are much shorter term than they used to be, and contractors are not compensated for this increased risk of losing employment. And management gives no appearance of caring, not acts like it cares. Pockets of the company still display an old-boy mentality towards women that is oppressive and demeaning. Women - beware - it's like Russian Roulette. And if you get the bullet shot at you, there's a chance you will be the one doing the advocacy for yourself and it could be a tough battle. Bullying outside protected classes or that is in the gray area has not been addressed seriously in the CACI culture. Performance reviews? Now you get shoved into a bell curve. On a high performing team, managers are forced to put their folks on a bell curve. HIGHLY DIMINISHES your chance of ever making financial progress. And since I've been with CACI, seen no COLAs.

    Advice to Management

    Train EVERYONE RIGOROUSLY in diversity. Be a leader like you claim to be as far as integrity, and take freedom from discrimination a step further - define bullying in the workplace and make it unacceptable. Find some model that works better so people aren't thrown away after a contract. When we feel unvalued due being treated like a commodity, stuck on a bell curve performance wise and not compensated or appreciated for good work, and when you keep decreasing benefits - we will not make you our employer of choice in the future. If this is your talent management approach, what you're doing so far, it's dismal. You may preach integrity, yet your employees are just gears in a wheel that are used up and thrown out. Yes, you have good things - definitely not the worst company, but not an employer of choice. I know things are hard, but there has to be some creative way to address it for your employees, because you are losing them - they are jumping ship - and your long-term problem will finding the best and the brightest you need to keep your reputation and succeed as a company. Find a way to really practice what you preach.

    I have been working at CACI International as a contractor

    Pros

    The hiring process was easy. The overseas pay is good.

    Cons

    As with any government contract position, it is easy for people to be let go

    Advice to Management

    Choose site leads who stand up for CACI employees rather than ones who allow poor military leadership to negatively affect performance and morale.

    Pros

    None can't think of anything positive working for CACI.

    Cons

    Nepotism and good old boys network, so if a supervisor doesn't like you they blackball you.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your good old boys/favoritism environment and judge people by their work, abilities and contributions.

    Pros

    Working as a part time contract background investigator on OPM contract allowed me to maintain active TS clearance after retiring from the military. Good place for new college grad to get a security clearance and work from home. Good benefits but most come out of your pay check.

    Cons

    Constant push for numbers and quotas leads to burn out. Would be worth it if they paid well but they do not.

    I have been working at CACI International full-time

    Pros

    No different than other companies in the PSS world. Company talks Integrity and Character, but when the chips are down, corporate leadership does not show leadership.

    Cons

    No accountability at corporate level to front line , client facing employees. Corporate failed to properly QA a proposal submittal resulting in CACI being DQ from a competition that CACI had been the prime on for over 30 years. No one from corporate has addressed the employees who are going to be out of their jobs; no contact from recruiters; no contact from HR.

    Advice to Management

    Own up to errors and assit the employees your lack of attention to detail has impacted.

    Pros

    Stable, interesting work. The location is great for me.

    Cons

    Below average benefits Very low raises (2yrs w/o a raises) CACI has taken away all the little perks that make the employees feel valued (coffee, paper cups, free donuts/bagels once a week). Now we are just a number. Our director actually told us if we were working here for the money then we should probably find another job because we won't be getting much more money.

    Advice to Management

    Put a little money and effort into employee retention. It will go a long way in keeping your employees happy and will help the company succeed.
