    I have been working at CACI International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A large company with formal processes and financial ability. Currently good pay and benefits. laid back work environment, not strict on when you arrive for work etc. Casual dress. Lots of really smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Company too large, processes too onerous, raises very low <1%. Layoffs with no severance, just a two month termination date. Uncertainty for the next 6 months, every six months. Management not fully forthcoming with information. Too much micromanagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees. They are adults and can handle the truth. Your employees are there to make your business successful, not to take advantage of the situation. Trust them to do their job and allow them to do without micromanagement.

    Pros

    The pay is on the higher end of average, employees are great and intelligent, decent benefits package, steady paycheck, free gym at HQ in your region. There is opportunity to progress and move around. Most clients and coworkers are friendly and a pleasure to work with. Middle management is great.

    Cons

    The 401k plan is subpar at best. They will not match it until you've been with them for several years.

    Only 6 government holidays are honored, you need to use your flex holidays or PTO to cover those days. Many contracts do not allow remote work, so if there's bad weather (Assuming you're anywhere in the NE) you have to use your PTO time.

    Also, when starting out you only get 13 days PTO, that number stays the same for 2-3 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want employees to stay, stop skimping on the benefits. While most companies are moving towards 3-4weeks PTO, you've been lowering PTO. Start matching 401k and set up a better process for managing benefits online. The current portal lacks navigation. Negotiate telework into contracts in the event of bad weather. Especially for employees based in areas that get hit bad with snow.

    I have been working at CACI International

    Pros

    Working at a client site with a small team as its benefits. Awesome team lead and unmeasureable support from team members. The client is decent too. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    TOO MUCH CONTRACTUAL RED TAPE. Nearly impossible to get a raise despite being an exceptional employee. No merit promotions to be seen, despite consistently meeting goals. No upward mobility. The PM's mantra is "Just be lucky you have a job!" Who wants to consistently produce for that kind of leadership? The difficulty in retaining good employees is largely due to the aforementioned red tape and managerial style of the PM. Failure to recognize Veteran's Day as a company holiday is also questionable considering a number of employees are Veterans. I'd prefer that to a 'floating holiday'. Career opportunities within the company are also dismal (depending on the contract) considering that the salary is lower than average for the same position and responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Want to retain employees? Treat them well and pay them more. Give raises. Reward hard work and dedication. When an employee quits, It costs 150% of an employees salary to replace him. Let that marinate.

    Pros

    Many job opportunities throughout the country.

    Cons

    typical "Big business", meaning every employee is merely a number on a sheet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide severance packages for those employees who are laid off due to government funding.

    Pros

    Work life balance is great, the company will invest in its employees, great benefits.

    Cons

    It all comes down to billable hours. If you are not billable, you may be released from the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you invest in your employees, be aware of what happens to them--continue the mentorship, and not leave them hanging.

    Cons

    - "Sales ability" factored into all compensation decisions, regardless of position
    - Budget for training and professional development extremely limited due to contracted work
    - The "sales" nature of upper managers is a turn-off to clients
