    Couldn't be happier.

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Egg Harbor Township, NJ

    Pros-Competitive Salary/Benefits/401K
    -Challenging and rewarding environment
    -Friendly co-workers and managers
    -Senior Management works extremely well with their employees. It doesn't feel like they are my boss, it feels like we are a team working towards achieving the same goals.
    -The resources/tools given to me are extremely useful and I am learning more and accomplishing more every day.

    ConsI don't see this as a con but I have to put something here! There is a lot to learn. Perhaps in your first few months you may want to put in some extra time to get ahead of the learning curve.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work. I've worked in other offices before and they cannot compare to the helpfulness and confidence you have in your employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Entering a growth stage

    Principal (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsPlenty of new opportunities for new employees, the company has gone through significant change to become a more agile consulting firm, and made some recent new key senior management hires. Excellent work/life balance, and fair pay. There is a large number of new employees who are excited about making change.

    ConsWe are at the tail end of a turn around, so there are still some bumpy roads ahead. You will still run into a minority of employees who have been with the company for a long time who are bitter about the recent changes where the company cut back benefits and budgets to be more competitive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNew management seems to be focused on the right issues, but management needs to be prepared to invest as the turnaround yields financial results.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great place to build a career

    Applications Development Manager (Former Employee)
    Chantilly, VA

    ProsGreat flexibility with working remotely. Competitive salary and benefits - the last year I was there, the benefits increased greatly, but that seemed to be the norm with big companies that year (2013). Challenging work, great people. I had an 18-year run, and would do it again if the opportunity presented itself.

    ConsIt seems they are taking years to go through their "transformation initiative" into "layers of 8". I fell victim to one of the weekly layoffs last year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove communication from the top down.

    Computer Programmer Intern (Former Employee)

    Pros-Weekly seminars on career advancement and current technologies for interns
    -Great atmosphere
    -Solid Salary for an internship
    -Co-workers and upper management were very helpful with any questions
    -Got my own office

    Cons-Did not get to work with any other interns since I was with a smaller division

    Stable and solid...for a large company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe benefits are great and the salaries are quite reasonable. I have a flexible work schedule and am able to work 100% from home.

    ConsWe're still in 'the middle' of a massive re-org right now. The political landscape is shifting day by day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe wary of 'penny-wise, pound-foolish' behavior that favors cheap labor from developing countries and then is shocked when we need three or four people to do the job that one U.S. citizen did.
