    I have been working at ARMA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Knowledge obtained, Contributions to families that lost a loved one in the war

    Cons

    Treatment of employees. Some departments of company not worth walking into. A lot of upper management has no clue what they are doing, but because they are a friend of someone else they get to remain employed making big money. Overworked, unappreciated

    Advice to Management

    Too many chiefs and not enough indians. Most of the chiefs don't do half of what you think they do.

    I worked at ARMA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is good. If you're chasing money and don't care about anything else like integrity or ethics, this is the company for you.

    Cons

    Management is the good 'ole boy network where the most unqualified people get hired to pretend they are managers. The end result is unsatisfied employees, unethical business practices and abusive management. The place is run just like the military--same moronic decisions all because I said so. Very frustrating to sit back and watch the idiocy, especially if you're a seasoned professional. Good talented people bail because the of the unqualified managers. People are berated and treated like tools. Communication from management is nonexistent, but really that's a good thing because otherwise you'd have to listen to some idiot dribble on and on.

    Advice to Management

    None. Really though, why bother to help a company that doesn't care about it's people. Get rid of the owners and fire all the current management staff--that's a start.

    Pros

    You receive decent benefits, decent pay, and a casual environment. I think it’s good that they help out families who have lost loved ones in the military.

    Cons

    Still a new company and they don’t have everything worked out. Management is not very knowledgeable at times. No training is provided. You get the feeling like you are just another paycheck working and not a member of a team. Doesn’t really take care of their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your members and they’ll work hard for you.

    I worked at ARMA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The customer was great, but I can't say the same for my former management and co-workers.

    Cons

    Very bad experience at an overseas site. Found it impossible to succeed in the living and work environment ARMA provided. On-site and conus management were little help. First job I was ever terminated from in thirty years of work. Management kept allowing unprofessional employee behavior to continue. The customer recognized my performance. I know that they had nothing to do with my dismissal. It was my co-workers and a very weak on-site supervisor who permitted situation to persist. I would never consider another position from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Take control of the work and living conditions, and don't allow the inmates to run the asylum. Establish rules and enforce them, so everyone gets a chance to succeed. I know that no one is listening at ARMA. .

    Pros

    There is nothing pros to talk about this organization after my experience.

    Cons

    I worked for Arma for sometime. After couple of months they demoted me to another group as I was not Subject Matter Expert in the position I was hired into. I was hired by the company after a thorough interview by the Tech Lead and Manager. After 3months, without saying a word about my job performance demoted me and cut my salary of $25,000 because I was not prior military or veteran. Their excuse was that I was not SME in the subject but the reality is that they take care of only people with military backgrounds and move them up. I knew this after I started working with the other group they moved one person to the Data Center into a position that was required to be a SME. The person that they moved had no IT background whatsoever. I believe that ARMA discriminates against non-veterans and against minorities. They also didn't give my vacation pay as I had so many hours and was taxed at a high rate. Management is terrible. They smile when you are hired, but when it was time to save the organization they become different human beings. The sad reality they don't realize is that one day they will be let go. They also report to someone higher up. I am glad I moved on from ARMA.

    Advice to Management

    Show some respect and equal treatment to people of minority backgrounds and non-veterans. Otherwise tomorrow the Company will go bankrupt.
