    Pros

    Good, intelligent co-workers who support each other. Upper management wants to do right by them.

    Cons

    Management willing to sacrifice benefits to reduce costs and win contracts. It is a 'race to the bottom' and will not lead to long term growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are better ways to reduce costs than cut vacation and health benefits. Try reducing overhead at the upper management level.

    Pros

    Business Unit Executive active member of his group; works lilke a team - they look out for each other, and as such, the customer gets a committed team that is focused on mission and customer.

    Cons

    Team philosophy is not consistently followed in two business units.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive leadership needs to ensure that business units operate consistently so that employees feel that they are part of a team, not individuals who's contribution doesn't matter.

    Pros

    The coworkers help each other with work assignments. Lower level management are concerned about their employees. Top senior management need to do the same.

    Cons

    Contracting work is not reliable since the government can cancel a contract if they find their budget needs have changed. Loss of a contract can affect over 200 employees working the requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shave top senior management who do not contribute fully and directly to contracts.

    I have been working at TASC

    Pros

    TASC business unit works cohesively and as a team. Great to be a member of it.

    Cons

    TASC is changing, like other defense contractors - with the US government pushing contractors to drive down costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your people - direct, and indirect - they are the face to the government customer and their expertise makes it possible for the company to exist.

    I worked at TASC part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    It was good when it was good and bad when it was bad. Everybody was enjoyable to work with when you had work.

    Cons

    Not a suitable position for someone who is looking to make a career out of this position, You never know when your going out for work. You could work one month and be off 3.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize what employees you have instead of hiring new employees to sit around and wait for work.

    I worked at TASC

    Pros

    The company has good people that work that have worked in industry for long time so you have people with great work experience. But some of those people have been there too long and there needs to be new faces. The company has good training programs.

    Cons

    Some of the management needs to take more interest in their employees and do a better job managing them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to do a much better job. Just because you have tenure doesn't mean you deserve to be a manager.

    I worked at TASC full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, easy work, flexible hours. Honestly, all you really needed was a pulse and willingness to ride the madness of working for junior officers.

    Cons

    Difficult people, terrible benefits, no career advancement... I could feel myself getting dumber by the day. It got to the point where I was becoming less of an engineer and more a pure SETA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What management?

    I have been working at TASC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some high quality co-workers that were as dedicated as I to the customer mission. Very generous tuition assistance program.

    Cons

    Inflexible work schedules, benefits so-so (although they describe it as "comparable"), poor interviewing and hiring decisions lead to some substandard personnel, PTO accrual and carry-over is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhead cuts have lead to push-down of overhead functions to lowest level of personnel management who are often inexperienced in the legal and mechanisms of dealing with difficult persons.
