I have been working at Copper River IT full-time (More than 3 years)
Great people that make you feel as part of the family. The group are starting to use processes in a more positive way to achieve success across the business functions.
There are too many executives that really don't understand the whole business. They think they do and talk a good game, but are sometimes unwilling to let their people do what they have hired them to do.
Advice to Management
Have more faith in the people you hire to do their jobs. If you allow middle management to lead they will most always surprise you with what they can do.

Helpful (2)Accepted OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Copper River IT (Chantilly, VA) in November 2011.
I arrived for my interview on time but the recruiter had made a mistake and told me the wrong time. Instead of apologizing and trying to determine the source of the confusion, the hiring manager was incredibly rude to me and made me feel like I was wasting his time. The interview felt more like an interrogation process. Despite this, after talking about my background they did say that my skills matched a contract they were trying to fill and we proceeded to discuss compensation.

Prior to coming in for the interview, I had discussed my salary requirements with the recruiter. During the negotiation process they tried to offer me far less than what I was looking for. The hiring manager actually became somewhat hostile, telling me that the experience and qualifications didn't warrant the salary I was asking for. Finally, after a very painful negotiation process, I agreed to accept the position. Now, I wished I hadn't.
