    Pros

    My direct report and management team were professional and very team oriented. Corporate seems intent on building a company built on true professionalism and rooting out the "buddy system" systemic in overseas contracting. My experience with the company was overall very positive

    Cons

    Many departments lacked continuous improvement input from their front line personnel. Many of my friends from other departments experienced a far courser work life from their senior management team.

    Advice to Management

    More emphasis on education, experience, skill, aptitude, and attitude during hiring.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Government 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 Management

    Information 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.

    Working for retired military, stuck in their old ways. Long hours. Generally 2 days off a month.
