    I worked at Assured Information Security full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good ethics, great benefits. The quality of the technical employees are fantastic. The company pursues contracts where the technical quality and employee service is more important than just getting to the lowest price. I have heard managers say that we should "meet or exceed customer expectations. Preferably exceed."

    Cons

    Career progression can be an issue. For most of the company's existence, there has been a low employee turnover. This is both good and bad. Employees like to stay but the lack of turnover can stagnate career growth opportunities. (I heard that the recent sequestration caused some shake-ups, maybe this has changed).

    Advice to Management

    There are many aspects of working for a small company I miss. But there is one function that I have really grown to respect and highly recommend that you consider doing better. Human Resources. From my perspective, you would be served well by putting some serious investment in HR.

    Pros

    Great benefits & pay. Smart & talented engineers, they are some of the most talented engineers and support people around. They really are what makes this place great. Recently the company reduced and streamlined the management team at all levels. Communication from the top has gotten a lot better and some of the bureaucracy has gone away.

    Cons

    Because it's a small company, if things get slow, you may be working on something boring or unrelated to your field for a while. Some of the program managers could use leadership training.

    Advice to Management

    Offer some basic training and instruction to new hires. Consider developing a career path that creates opportunity for advancement.

    I worked at Assured Information Security full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great! Health insurance, short term and long term disability. 7% contribution to 401k without requiring match. $500.00 annual expense account for work related hardware, software, books, etc. A lot of great engineers working cool projects. Good salaries!

    Cons

    Customers are very demanding and can cause chaos. The company is a government contractor and sometimes you can not share what you are working on with friends and families.

    Advice to Management

    More communication to the employees from all levels of management. Mid-level managers in particular need to communicate more. They seem scared to share bad news. Need more University relationships. More collaboration among the basic research teams.

    I have been working at Assured Information Security full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There's a lot of really bright people that work at AIS, and it's a great opportunity to learn things about computer science beyond the classroom from them. The work is really interesting and challenging and rewarding. Upper management is approachable and listens to and seriously considers what the engineers have to say. Engineers are major part of the business development, and management recognizes that. Great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    It is a bit disordered and chaotic at times, which I think the company embraces. It's not for everyone, but I like it.

    Advice to Management

    To my knowledge management makes the best decisions they can for their employees and the company. I've seen them make very selfless and hard decisions, and as an employee I appreciate that.

    Get people with experience in medium-to-large businesses in some upper level positions Solicit and heed advice from senior engineers and management Put more money into internal research and business development
