    Pros

    Management was hands off and allowed you to use your skills to get the work done. Employees were treated very well.

    Cons

    Because this is a Contractor position the company didn't have full control of when and if the contract would be cut or limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Lost of flexibility. Management willing to work with employees. Telecommuting option when needed.

    Cons

    Cost of living raises are rare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Involve employees more in what is going on. Taking the time upfront (even when things are busy) will help everyone down the road on a project.

    Pros

    Challenging assignments, locations and projects. The company is well organized and efficient. Management is informed and helpful. Overall a great company to work for and with. Opportunity for advancement is available, but since they were government contractors, are limited in locations.

    Cons

    Had to travel far to work. At times there was difficulty reaching the corporate headquarters for issues and information. Hard to work from remote locations. Salary good, but when you included time and distance to travel, it was average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire good managers - they help to motivate employees
