    Good company.

    Former Employee - Counterintelligence Planner, Lead
    Former Employee - Counterintelligence Planner, Lead

    I worked at CACI International full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility in job location and job type; CACI seemed to have a positive reputation among the multiple government/military work-sites I supported; good pay and adequate benefits. Room for advancement. Management was generally open about changes the company planned to implement.

    Cons

    Inadequate HR/Management response to retain qualified individuals when a contract is lost. Organization communication plan was, at times, slow to reach employees working in overseas locations. A greater emphasis on timely communication of organizational changes would have been beneficial.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder to keep long tem employees.

    I worked at CACI International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    By in large, I worked with a lot of capable individuals. The benefits are outstanding and the pay is fair. Will try to retain your services by moving you laterally to another position.

    Cons

    Just like any other contractor, you never know when your contract might end. If they are in a subcontractor status, sometimes the pay commensurate to your skills won't be available to you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your top performers. Do not assume that just because a contracts stability is tenuous, that the employees will not bring their best effort. Doing this leaves a very bad taste in their mouths and breeds mistrust and discord. This is a good way to lose quality employees.

    Pros

    Good benefits, lots of former military work here so great for military retirees who want to want to 'stay connected.'

    Cons

    Pay was terrible considering the cost of living in San Diego. If you don't have additional source of income, it's tough to live off this salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay, reduce disorganization.

    Current Employee - Background Investigator in Chantilly, VA

    I have been working at CACI International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The first line supervisors can be very easy to work with.

    Cons

    With the loss of work for USIS, CACI has become money hungry. Most of the new employees make more money than the legacy staff. Management and HR are not interested in providing rectification. Opportunities for growth were promised for legacy staff, but this is only if you know someone or if you are willing to take a pay cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bad business practices and treat legacy staff properly by ensuring equal pay and benefits. Promote investigators with pay raises in new jobs, not cuts.

    Pros

    Before the huge influx of employees from USIS CACI was a very good company

    Cons

    Many legacy employees were encouraged to apply for positions due to the expansion of the contract. Many qualified employees were not even interviewed but instead CACI picked up former USIS management. It's a shame that CACI did not promote within first but they looked outside the organization. There are problems already starting with these former USIS managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the influx of investigators CACI has not increased the salaries of their legacy employees. To me this is a slap in the face and will be seeking employment else where. CACI will be losing many qualified and loyal employees if something is not done. You bring your concerns to management and nothing is done. The excuses you keep getting is that they have a great wealth of knowledge...but my response is if they are so good why did they lose the contract.

    Pros

    It is a solid company. The office culture depends on whether you were acquired by CACI. Depending on your manager you can have some flexibility with working from home. When it's crunch time hours can be long. You are expected to do what it takes in terms of hours to get it done right.

    Cons

    The morale is not as high as before. There have been a lot of lay-offs. Since the government contracts are really focusing the bottom-line the company has made significant efforts to do more with less employees.

    I have been working at CACI International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    CACI was a great company to work for. I started out in the Middle East (Bahrain) and was transferred to Tampa. In both locations I worked in Network Admin type role for a system called Promina.

    Cons

    There were very few challenges with this job. My only issue was prior to getting hired I almost lost out to someone less qualified due to someone's personal pick for the position. I ended up interviewing again while waiting on an offer letter.
