    I have been working at SI Organization full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Company is making moves to expand into new markets, principally through a large recent acquisition of a development (solutions) company with many different customers/contracts. Seemingly necessary given the competition. Focus on cost reduction to improve competitiveness is necessary, but at a cost to morale. I like that the company is taking meaningful and focused action to expand. In particular, I have a very good technical peer and management chain.

    Cons

    I don't feel the recent benefit and time-keeping changes, nor those we expect to see in the integrated company, are on par with other companies. Senior executive staff, except my Mission Analysis VP, show too little interest in the people and the work being performed, even as the people generate the revenue and company successes. Lots and lots of reorganization tuning going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more focus on the workforce - improve advocacy and funding for technical training. Communicate strategy and plans more directly and frequently. Spend more time in the trenches with the workforce. Don't underestimate the need for strong engineering and analysis talent, and retention, as these are hard skills to rebuild within our mission space. Take a breath.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with one of their managers on the phone. A couple of weeks later I was offered a position with the company. Found out after accepting the offer I would be working under a different manager and to support a different contract and position than which I interviewed for.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked mostly technical questions. I don't think they asked any behavioral questions. Questions were fairly straightforward. Not difficult.   Answer Question
