    Review

    Director of Pricing (Current Employee)
    Fort Worth, TX

    ProsGaffney's vision, leadership, mentoring. Completely different company since Cerberus bought us.

    Cons"It's not my job"; "It's the COE's fault", "COE's do not support us" and like statements from middle management and below that tarnish relationships.
    Common statements within BATs and COEs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't compound bad decision made several years ago and perpetuate it. It might be better to snap a chalk line and start over.

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

    Some of the worst management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Fort Worth, TX

    ProsPay is decent looking from the outside in, but once you are in you receive more and more tasks.

    ConsSome of the worst management. Employees are belittled, micro-managed, and at times harrased and it is accepted by Human Resources. Retaliation is also a fear all employees have. Management sticks together even if proven wrong. Human Resources is there to protect management and the company NOT the employee. Company is all about metrics instead of taking the time to take care of the customer. This company is also all about who you know. Opportunities are given to only certain people.

    Constant change with many challenges

    COMBS Quality Assurance (Current Employee)
    Columbus, MS

    ProsThere are a few incentive rewards with healthcare to earn reward money. Fair amount of places to get discounts and perks, ie. AT&T. Tuition assistance is very generous along with relocation reimbursement.

    ConsUpper management does not know what is going on or how to run the program. There are many issues, one being the current health insurance change and no coverage in this area. Possibility of layoffs and a reduced workforce. Overtime has currently been banned due to the budget.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management needs to be informed of what it is really like to work at a site and realize that the great plans that are drawn up in a cubical, will always work. Professional micromanagers and this creates issues as one can imagine.

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

    I enjoy working here.

    Cisco Voice Engineer (Current Employee)
    Fort Worth, TX

    ProsAfter April 2013 working in IT got 75% better. A lot of improvements have been made within the IT department as a whole and there are good IT managers willing to give you a chance to move up if you work hard. Training is okay. Most of the training I've gotten to advance my career has been done on my own initiative, at my own expense, and on my own time. There is a lot of opportunity to learn and get experience with a wide spectrum of technologies. Not a lot of perks company wise that I can think of.

    ConsAs far as job security, it's only good when there's a major war going on.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sorry it is ending

    ICL Supervisor (Current Employee)
    Indianapolis, IN

    ProsGreat support from management at all levels. Being able to just get away to Dubai for three days is a bonus.

    ConsVery harsh environment, so if you have allergies to dust this is most definitely not the place for you. The summer will burn your biscuits as in HOT HOT HOT.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to be there for your subordinates especially during this period of the project.

    Ideal employer for those willing to work hard, apply themselves, and who are dedicated to learning more about business

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Fort Worth, TX

    ProsStrong company values for which people are held accountable; companywide sense of pride in the mission - people care about the work they are doing; opportunities to learn more to advance your career are limitless

    ConsMarket dynamics make this a challenging time for anyone who contracts with the U.S. government; not a place for those just looking to "show-up" each day who are not invested in the work they do

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to focus on core values across company; continue to hold people accountable for delivering results and living the company values

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