    Pros

    Numerous project teams, offering variety of work options.
    Nice location in Shirlington Village.
    Program Managers and Project Managers are really kind, generous, supportive, helpful, and hard-working people.
    Executives are also helpful and nice people.
    Company culture has a "keep it lean and mean, and get it done" attitude.

    Cons

    Some executives have a tendency to publicly yell at and/or otherwise berate lower-level personnel, negatively affecting morale.
    COO has been a "revolving-door" position, with three different COOs (and one interim) in the past 12 months.
    CEO has vision to evolve the company's structure, but has not clearly articulated a plan to achieve this.
    The company is growing larger but still controls spending like a very small company, sometimes being "penny-wise but pound-foolish".

    Advice to Management

    Keep building a culture of mutual trust, respect, hard work, and hard play! Praise in public and rebuke in private.
    Clearly articulate the plan for the company's future evolution, and if this isn't decided yet then say so bluntly and solicit feedback and ideas from your management team and employees - they care about the company and like working there, and want to help and be heard.
