    Pros

    Govt contract grabber. So there you go, if you wanna work as a contractor to the US Govt. Even though they do not get contracts these days but still.

    You get your paycheck on time.

    Cons

    1. Bad management
    2. Very non-personal even though small
    3. Business is slow and they do not have a lot of contracts
    4. Striving for growth opportunities is only limited to their speech for the annual party

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Please focus on business and get enough contracts to give challenging work to the employees.
    2. Do not lie.

    Pros

    Little/no oversight by management (I guess that's positive)

    Cons

    Some of the partners appear only interested in picking up their paychecks; have no interest in their staffs work or career goals or success

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some real managers in there, or hang it up
