    I have been working at NJVC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Exciting opportunities in a challenging atmosphere has taught me more than I expected. Pay increases over the years have been much better than I expected.

    Cons

    Current lack of direction and lack of company future is very disheartening. Seem to be running after anything shiny in hopes that there will be a future rather than coming up with a real plan. Benefits are quickly evaporating and professional growth has gone down to nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage with your employees and let them know where they'll be in 5 years. The message you are sending now is that they won't be working for NJVC.

    Pros

    NJVC pays very well
    Medical/Dental insurance is great

    Cons

    Lack of vision from the senior leadership and reliance on one single large contract to sustain the company.
    Corporate investment in areas that we had no business investing as a small company - cloud and data center namely
    Benefits are rapidly disappearing like paid time off, no pay increase for 2015
    Communication from the senior leadership to the team has altogether ceased with the exception of email correspondence when it's time to let us know about a benefit changing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in the trenches with your folks. Respect begets respect and loyalty does the same. We are a small company, getting smaller, so get back in here with us. Roll up your sleeves and dig in with your team. We understand that times are changing, and the economic climate isn't what it was years ago - BUT - we feel like we're alone in this fight and that we're just a number.

    Pros

    Pockets of Individuals create a small ecosystem that drive one to keep fighting for a future with this company
    Agile solutioning to the needs of our customers

    Cons

    Lack of feedback and direction.
    Too tactical. Lack of strategic vision - if there is a strategic vision, it is completely unknown beyond a select few individuals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ENGAGE internally and externally.
    Use our substantial qualifications to bid many small to midsize opportunities instead of "betting the farm" on a handful of large/highly competitive bids against much larger players
    Consolidate overhead with parent company for functions that do not directly impact the ability to drive revenue

    Pros

    They have some really talented people that work for them and they seem to pay very well.

    Cons

    A very young company that has a lot to learn about HR and processes. There is very minimal opportunities for growth within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop cutting benefits, invest in your employees, and reward the employees that deserve it.

    Pros

    People are very welcoming and helpful.

    Cons

    Constant fear of being "reduced" and leadership that lives in an Ivory Tower

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership ineeds to engage and actually show up at the office more than one a month - if leaders don't care then why should anyone else?

    Pros

    Paycheck is nice. Everything else is just details.

    Cons

    Typical Government bureaucracy, same as the rest I suppose. Prime contract is on its last leg, interested to see if the pot of gold will be spilled to the rest of the defense contracting vulchers at some point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit so I can get a bonus instead.

    Pros

    Decent compensation, straightforward support work. Middle management varies a lot. Less pressure on overhead than similar firms. If you want to do Enterprise Operations support, this is a good place to be.

    Cons

    Minimal opportunities for growth. Few or no apparent leadership or business examples. Management (middle and upper) is disinterested. If you want to do something other than Enterprise Operations support, or expect job growth opportunities, you'll be disappointed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's getting very late to develop new business
