    Pros

    They had the opportunities for a recently separated Army Subject Matter Expect to roll right into a position and be successful.

    Cons

    CACI is a large defense contract whose Program Management receive an enormous pressure to remain under budget while every year on the contract the overhead gets cuts to beat the under-bidding of competitors .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider hiring and keeping qualified people.

    Pros

    CACI has a lot of contracts that you can work on so the type of jobs and reviews that you get really depends on the project you are assigned to.

    My current project, the management is very relaxed and do not micromanage, which is a huge plus. They do expect you to be on top of your work.

    Cons

    My direct manager is in a different state, even though we'd talk often, he doesn't see what I do on a daily basis. This is the downfall as if you want to move up and get promoted, you will not get recognized very easily.

    I have been working at CACI International

    Pros

    I like my job. It's simple, easy and the pay checks are worth the work.
    Some of the coworkers are friendly and a lot of them are helpful.
    Randomly we get catered food that tastes decent.

    Cons

    The company itself is amazing.
    The site I am at is not.
    Management doesn't seem to have a clue what they are doing . They like to talk about coworkers behind their backs, to other coworkers. They have a close knit group that you can't get into(although you probably don't want to). There seems to be no room to move forward which means, after a year, a lot of workers plan to leave.
    This whole place just rubs me the wrong way.
    Things weren't clarified. (Rules, etc).
    They don't actually put in an effort to train new workers. I don't know if they ever did. They push them off onto other workers beneath them and expect them to train the new workers.
    I was trained by someone who had only been there for 2 months.(not even out of their 90 day probation period yet). Because they were "too busy" to help me.
    Will get on workers for "complaints" but won't follow the rules themselves. Will sit in each other's offices and talk for hours and no one says anything.
    The job is basically "learn from every mistake"
    But only if someone realizes you've made that mistake or you notice it.
    I could go on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least try to look like you're working. Sitting at your desk on FB or just sitting in each others offices, chatting, doesn't count. It makes the workers around you resent you. Stop talking behind workers backs, to other workers because it does get around and it doesn't end well. It's stressful as it is. With no sense of guidance and the managers don't seem to have a clue what they are doing, it seems hopeless.

    I have been working at CACI International full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers salary is ok. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Very reluctant to order tools and supplies. Too conscious about their own image. Very little room for employees to grow. Very little interaction with management. If you are looking for a place where you can be part of a team. I would say to look elsewhere. You can probably do better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More interaction with employees. Get to know the workers better and get a sense of what is going on in their lives. Take an interest in them not just as an employee number but as real people, part of a family. When people feel satisified about their jobs their production will increase as well.

    Pros

    Work-life balance was very good and dependent upon contract, and the staff are extremely hard workers.

    Cons

    Compensation is low, seems geared towards military retirees that have another income. Once contract ends, there is very little support for finding new contracts to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better assistance to staff when contracts are ending so they can stay employed.
