    REI invests in employees

    Associate Software Architect (Current Employee)
    Sterling, VA

    ProsI was so excited when I got the MS COE pioneer plaque and dell tablet. I was already happy and satisfied with all the opportunities that REI provides for us to improve our technical skills - MSDN accounts, powerful laptops, plural sight account, trainings and 1 week of professional development hours.

    I wanted to personally thank you senior mgmt for making all this happen. I get to work with other govt contracting companies as a sub contract. From what I have seen, REI is an amazing place to work.

    ConsNeed to win more projects to sustain

    Best Job I've Ever Had

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMy manager and even upper management have made me feel that my work is appreciated, that I have contributed to the well-being of the company and the various projects I've worked on. Sr. management even seems to listen to employee feedback and then do something about it, like overhauling our benefits package this year. People ask me if I'm doing the kind of work I want to do. I've never experienced that before.

    ConsToo many people who struggle with the English language. While they are more than competent technically, they very often have a difficult time making themselves understood by the customer or even teammates. Too many managers have a "never-say-no-to-the-customer" approach that makes for outrageous requirements and not enough time or money to meet them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage project managers to manage their customers' expectations and stay on top of scope creep.

    Honest, Hard-Working, Fun, Focused

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Sterling, VA

    Pros- If you are good at what you do, you will be recognized and rewarded
    - Upper management is getting better at identifying the issues, problems and making every effort to solve it
    - So many initiatives have been taken in the last year to make an employee feel appreciated and recognized
    - Lot's of fun while working
    - Upper management is very open to hearing feedback (positive and negative)
    - Have been with the company for 5 years and not a single day has passed where I feel under-appreciated
    - Flexible working hours

    Cons- Few managers are not good people managers, but the upper management is taking strict action and making it their priority for 2014

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are, I have seen a HUGE difference in the last year, identifying the problems and focusing on solving them. Definitely moving in the right direction.

    Great place to work!!

    Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Herndon, VA

    Pros- Family friendly company: flexibility enables those with family to work hard but spent time with family
    - Competitive salary
    - Amazing coworkers
    - Management cares about employees.

    Cons- Company grew too fast leaving behind management growth. Fortunately, they are getting their acts together.
    - Unless you are focus on a career path, you can be thrown around in different roles which may affect your career. On the flip side, being thrown into various roles increase one's knowledge in different areas and overall increase your career outlook in a big picture.

    Treat employees well, but sometimes a little bit cheap.

    Associate Web Designer (Current Employee)
    Sterling, VA

    ProsFlexible hours -- come in whenever you want (within reason, earlier than 10:30 am, etc) and do your work and 8 hours and you're good.
    Great facilities (new building) -- well lit and comfortable.
    Nice benefits -- decent 401k matching, good healthcare, etc.

    ConsSometimes cheap -- won't pay any sort of overtime, but WILL dock your pay if you're under 80 hours (biweekly). Pretty much never provides free gifts, lunches, etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be afraid to spend a bit extra money on projects to achieve excellence!
