    I worked at AAC as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great work schedule, good team to work with on client site, Program Manager was solid.

    Cons

    They don't stand up for their employees and take whatever the client says as gospel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES!!! They are the ones on the ground providing the eyes you don't see on the client site. Don't just ignore them. It doesn't matter how good of a job you perform for the client if everyone knows they are incompetent.

    I worked at AAC full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very large and complex Project with many facets and interfaces. The work environment was excellent and the people were very professional.

    Cons

    Corporate infrastructure is short handed and corporate data collection and reporting systems currently inadequate to deal with large contracts. Also the OBS is confusing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a solid OBS.. Develop standard operating procedures (SOPs) that define the work flows and business processes. Be more communicate with employees.

    I have been working at AAC as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    -They pay on time and generally speaking they leave you alone if you aren't making them look back which is nice

    Cons

    -Always looking to cut operations to the bare bone, almost to the point where they become non functional
    -Clients are constantly unsatisfied which puts a lot of strain on the work force to do more work with no support from management
    -Benefits are terrible when compared to industry standards, another sign of cutting costs
    -Incompetent management that literally have no idea what they are doing half the time
    -They do not promote a learning environment or an environment that encourages growth whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your more experienced sub contractors to take more of the reigns because since you are new to the game, you obviously have no idea what you are doing. This in turn will make your run as a government contracting company a short one since no one will want to work with you. Fix this immediately or you will always be known as a hit and run contracting company.

    I worked at AAC full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable and profitable company which has been around for 30 years.

    Cons

    Very strong "old boys network", which makes it hard to make career progress. Company makes decent earnings, but they refuse to spend on infrastructure and employee development. There is "management" and "labor" class and each gets treated differently. Career advancement isn't based on the talent but personal relationship with executives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your top performers stay wihin the company. Career advancements shouldn't be based on the relationship with executives but the performance and customer satisfaction. Hire MBAs from top universities to think strategically as opposed to reactionary.
