    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Allowed me to develop some tools

    Cons

    Very discriminatory environment. They treat minorities like second class citizens. I think someone is suing them for this. They lie about opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to bigger company.


  2. Very negative. Not winning a lot of business. They put more resources into proposals than operations.

    Pros

    Not much. They promise a lot and throw a lot of parties. They are committed to community service. They just don't have Senior Manager participation. Bonuses have been decent.

    Cons

    A lot. The CEO is an idealist who listens only to those who give him information he wants to hear. Many employees get bullied out of the organization and all the CEO offers is money. They are loosing a lot of business and are not being clear with employees on what is the vision. They invest more in proposals and have a lot of Senior Managers in BD. I felt my last two years I worked more for BD than my contract.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the business you have, not the business you want to get.

    Pros

    The company has some decent talent and employees with strong work ethics

    Cons

    From colleagues and friends who are tied in legal matters with this organization, there seems to be a number of discriminatory issues in its management ranks. In addition to this, I have learned of many Human Resource violations derived from personnel and employee relations.

    Pros

    Some upper-middle management are personable and care about employees. Those individuals strive to connect with people within their contract and are enjoyable to work with. Flexibility: Depending on the contract, you have large flexibility with your schedule (AWS is allowed for at least one contract.) Most employees are very qualified for their respective positions. The company contributes back with community volunteer opportunities and college scholarships. The company has numerous certifications and looks good on paper.

    Cons

    Retention: There is an extremely high turnover rate. I estimate at least 2 people leave every 6 weeks and 90% quit before reaching a year with the company. Growth/Satisfaction: None. There is absolutely no room for growth or advancement; which has been openly expressed by numerous management and HR personnel. There is no "cohesion.” In general, there is a lack of respect which is perceived on both ends. Contracts: Government management has expressed contempt and extreme annoyance for management at CCSi. I was a loyal employee but experienced and witnessed the extreme lack of business sense, professionalism, and the pure apathy expressed by the company towards its employees. If you are looking for quick work while you wait for another job or clearance, this is the place for you. However, it is not a lasting work place. If you have been contracting or in the IT field for over 20 years, you will probably not have the same experience as myself, But if you are relatively new to the field they will take advantage of you.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a potential career path for new and lower-level employees. Talk straight to employees that raise concerns. Foster a better work environment and encourage respect from all parties. Make the company a place employees are proud to work; subcontracting companies treat their employees better, which is detrimental to the work environment. Take control of your contracts and establish better relationships with your clients.
