I worked at Arete Associates full-timePros
Projects are interesting and provide opportunities for technical growth.
Excellent coworkers: people know their stuff and also create a friendly culture.
Workload is reasonable.Cons
There is no modern performance evaluation or promotion process (e.g., no 360-degree reviews). Many personnel decisions appear to reflect favoritism or bias against those who don't fit the mold of a typical scientist or engineer.
The company has not weathered recent ups and downs in the federal budget well. Management often seems to be scrambling to make decisions.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Establish systematic performance evaluations with peer input. Institute processes to reduce bias in personnel decisions. Bring in leaders with broader experience and more management training.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookNo opinion of CEO
