    Great Company to work for

    Intelligence Analyst (Former Employee)
    Falls Church, VA

    ProsVery intelligent staff

    Good benefits. Their 403b retirement is generous. Starts off at 5% your salary with 1% increase each yr with maximum 10% and fully vested on day one.

    During the shutdown many of my friends had to take leave or had no pay for two weeks. This company quickly found assignments for everyone. When contracts have been lost they do their best to find a new position.

    Quick to recognize a hard working employee with on the spot cash awards and yearly bonus

    ConsNeed more variety of contracts, to be able to move around if the employee wants a change yrs later.

    Salary is below market

    Upward mobility can be difficult

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Place to Gain Experience and Impact

    Senior Associate Analyst (Current Employee)
    Falls Church, VA

    ProsAnalytic Services Inc and Homeland Security Studies and Analysis Institute (HSSAI) are great places to work, especially if you are starting out as entry-level and looking to gain program management and consulting experience. The corporation provides opportunities for you to work with sponsors at all levels of government. Overall, I would definitely say that this is a great place for young professionals gain hands-on work experience in an environment that fosters collaboration.

    ConsSome members of the senior leadership seem very removed from the rest of the employees, and employees definitely know who actually knows what is going on and which leaders are actually acting in the best interests of the employees. Although leadership in the company in general cares and looks out for it's employees, some members of the leadership team definitely need to conduct more outreach with employees in the company and actually foster/build relationships with them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on fostering an environment conducive to professional development and conduct more outreach with your employees. Employees strongly believe and support our mission of informing decisions that shape the nation's future, but many feel a disconnect between leadership and what is actually going on with employees.

    Great Company to work for!

    Senior Associate Analyst (Current Employee)
    Hampton, VA

    ProsANSER has the best benefits I have ever had with any company! They really care about you and will help you as best they can with any issues you encounter.

    ConsThey are still a growing company so if there is a problem with your position (position going away, contract cuts, etc), it will be harder to place you than if you were at a bigger company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing right now - taking care of your employees. You really are doing a great job!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
