    Pros

    "You must enter at least 5 words for Pros."

    Cons

    To those who are considering working at FedBid, I would encourage you to google "FedBid Veterans Affairs" and at the top of the page, you will see a Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General report dated September 2014 that details FedBid's relationship with the Veterans Health Administration from about 2011 to 2014. Read the report objectively, paying particular attention to FedBid's involvement and read other supplemental articles about the situation. Gather intelligence about how FedBid is viewed by government agencies, by the industry, and by the media. Then ask yourself... is FedBid really the kind of company I want to work for and associate myself with? There are many articles that read like marketing material. An internal email will tout to FedBid employees something to the effect of, "look how great we are!" or "another win for the books!" when the reality of the situation is that FedBid has a relationship with that writer or that media outlet and they have used their influence for some positive coverage among a mountain of embarrassing, more truthful portrayals of the company, its practices, and its employees. FedBid will tell you that it is a game-changing type company, that it is (what are the cliche words on its website?) "innovative" and "dynamic" and that it is only natural that the opposition will get upset and ruffle feathers. What a seasoned professional will tell you is just the opposite: for a business to grow and succeed, that it won't take a "heavy handed" approach or for its employees to "storm the castle" of its clients. Dedication, employee satisfaction, commitment, giving that extra effort because you believe it the mission- these are traits of a successful company and traits that former employees of FedBid would in no way attribute to this company. There are many reviews of FedBid on this website. Some are funny, some relatable, some are exaggerations, and some are positively or negatively written from the limited scope of the reviewers' work and life experience. Other reviews you you may find read like marketing material because that's exactly what they are- reviews written by management or Human Resources in an attempt to salvage their tarnished name and meet their present or future recruiting quota. The bottom line is that FedBid is not a company built upon open communication, upon integrity or transparency, or upon going the extra mile because you believe in your job and the company mission. Working at FedBid is exactly like getting recruited into and being trapped in a cult... a FedBid vs. The Opposition mentality is ingrained in its employees to keep the carrot dangling. My overall best advice is to not get involved with FedBid as an employees, as a government or commercial buyer or as a business/seller. There are much, much better companies in the DMV in which to do business, earn a paycheck, get experience, etc. Just ask one of FedBid's former Presidents, Senior Vice Presidents, Vice Presidents, or Senior Directors (I mean, how many "senior" people are really needed who do absolutely nothing?)... there plenty coming and going in FedBid's ever-revolving door.
