The company culture is full of really talented and brilliant individuals. Everyone is always more than willing to lend a hand if it helps out the end goal. In recent years, the company has gone through some growing pains (which is to be expected) but it has caused a turmoil work environment.
Upper management is poor at communication and does not support individual professional career goals. Lead by example and promote the internal hardworking employees by recongnition. Many times the ones that work behind the scenes to keep the company afloat, go unnoticed. Long hours and long work weeks are the norm for the IT folks (engineers, developers, analysts, PM's). Compensation for the dedicated employees is fair, only PM's tend to get paid what they deserve. Expect to be on call at all times and work a min. of 50 hours per work week especially if deliverables are due in a tight time frame.
Advice to Management
Trust those that work for you. If you had a hand in hiring your people, trust that they have the companies best interest in mind. Don't go hire someone else to pay an outsider more than your internal trusted source that is right there in front of you. The best employees are those that are mentored and groomed for leadership roles. If they tell you they have big plans for themselves, help them get there! The best leaders are those that truly support their own!

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Insignia Technology Services (Newport News, VA) in December 2011.
Hiring process is very personal and approachable. Even with multiple interviewers, each one made the experience feel comfortable and eased the tension. Made me feel wanted and as if I was a person and not just some number or name on a piece of paper. Professional and comfortable environment.
