The Management is the Problem

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Fort Gordon, GA

I have been working at Akima Management Services full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood environment to work in, military base, and great pay for non high school level employees. Wonderful oppertunities to advance and gain addional skills. Very good work schedule, average schedule is 7:30 AM - 4PM.

ConsManagment is horrible. The same group of managers have been running the project even with the change of contracts,in at least 20 years. This location of Akima practices a very unethical and impractical form of nepotism that has violated several employee's rights and with many unjustly loosing thier jobs. With so many family and personal friend relations minepulating the system , it is impossion to hold them accoutable for unethical behavior. Management at the Ft. Gordon location is extremly corruted.

Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate has to really take time to investigate this situation. Ft. Gordon's Akima management team here are so set and comfortable in their postions, they are good at hiding and changing fact to silence or eliminate the employees who question their behavior.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Horrible Management

General Clerk (Current Employee)
Fort Gordon, GA

I have been working at Akima Management Services full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThey have very good salaries for the education required.

ConsYou must play politics. It is not enough to do your work and others. The managers and supervisors must like you or they will make sure you are let go. The fabricate things against those employees. My area was a powder keg just asking for workplace violence.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't believe what most supervisors and employees tell you. When a supervisor or manager decides he does not like someone, that person is set up to be let go.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Bad company lacking professional management

Vice President (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at Akima Management Services full-time for more than 3 years

ProsIf you can't find any other job

ConsVery low end federal contracting work
Constant change of management, mostly for non-professional reasons
Alaskan native owned - most contracts are entitlements

Advice to Senior ManagementJust saying we aregoing to compete with Lockheed Martin does not make you a professional organization. Hire and retain professionals

LLNL MVP Site Review

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Livermore, CA

I have been working at Akima Management Services full-time for more than 10 years

ProsSalary, Benefits, Vacation, Flexible Schedule, Generous 401k matching, reasonable commute, reasonable accommodations, most of the co-workers are friendly, competent people.

ConsThe site management team is not here to serve the AKIMA employee. If the client decides it is time for you to leave, even after 10+ years of service, you are asked to leave without ANY notice! Employees are placed in a position and then left to churn out work. There is no opportunity for growth.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou can never rise above the limitations of your character. Choose to be people with strong character as it is the foundation on which to build success.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good company to start and gain entry level experience.

Electronics Technician III (Former Employee)
Fort Gordon, GA

I worked at Akima Management Services full-time for more than 5 years

ProsHad a good supervisor and managed to get promoted twice but couldn't move further up after that due to lack of opportunities. Had a good open door policy to talk to HR and upper management. Learned a lot of new systems and worked with a good team.

ConsNo career development programs available to employees. Also, no tuition/education reimbursement programs available to employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your employees and they will stick around longer.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
