    Defense Contracting is contracting

    Senior Accountant (Current Employee) Fort Worth, TX

    ProsThere are opportunities for advancement if you are ambitious, smart and willing to work hard. Decent benefits.

    ConsGovernment contractors experienced massive growth during the Bush years and now the cycle has turned. Currently in 2014 this is a very challenged sector with downsizing occurring on an ongoing basis.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInformation and knowledge is very compartmentalized and difficult to obtain, creating an inefficient work environment and often inconsistent results. A greater emphasis should be placed on leveraging the knowledge of SMEs who can greatly reduce the learning curve for more inexperienced or temporary staff.

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

    Nice people exceptional business

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsAbove average compensation stateside and abroad. This compensation package has helped many families over the years. Be aware that this is a government contractor which has varying staffing needs.

    ConsWorking stateside I found the number of layoffs were unsettling and caused stress within the department. (To be expected) Upper management was not as affected though.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe good ol boys network / hire your friends for upper positions has a lot of internal attention but not a lot of respect.

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