    I have been working at CACI International full-time (more than 8 years)

    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 as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    CACI employs talented people. Their recruiters work with you in a professional manner and are timely in coordinating interviews and providing timely feedback. The benefits are also fairly competitive with other Defense Contractors.

    Cons

    Like most Defense Contractor employment, you will be assigned to a client site and never see a CACI office again. However, that is part of the bargain when you sign up to be a contractor. Also, goals and objectives for career growth are really never discussed with you during your tenure. It's all about pleasing the client which might not be a bad thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to get out and meet your people.

    I have been working at CACI International full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The working hours are great, flexibility of work hours and generally the people you work with on their contracts are smart and come to work everyday with a positive attitude. I have been with the company for 2 years and we have done a lot of good things for our clients.

    Cons

    For all the good things that you do on the job working for clients, the company has seemed to completely forget about taking care of their employees over the past 2 years. Due to various factors, the company isn't making as much profit as they used to and they are passing the losses to the employees to keep their profit margins as high as possible. Even if you are on a contract or business group that is making a ton of money, dont expect any perks or a raise. They havent given ANYONE a raise in 2 years, reworked the 401k to screw people that leave the company mid-year, and have done basically everything they can to save a dollar. If I wanted to work for the government and get treated like that, I would have taken a government job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel like leadership is jerking us around and not being honest.

    Pros

    LIke most consulitng/contracting companies in the DC area, if you have a good client then you will enjoy your job.

    Cons

    The company sees you as just a number and revenue stream. As long as you are billable on the client site then you are fine but if you are looking to transistion to another project it will fall on you to network that change.

    I have been working at CACI International full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you're in a group where the management has been there for a while, on an established contract, this job is great. If you're in one of the older buildings, or have tenure, you can get a fantastic office. Often they are willing to hire you at a very competitive salary, if you have the skills to back it up.

    Cons

    If you're working on a short-term gig, it's going to be tough. Also, they are doing all the things a company would do right before filing bankruptcy: removing all the cups, spoons, and coffee from the kitchens, holding back pay, delaying performance reviews, "going green" by cutting every imaginable thing they can. Even the plants in the office were cut. I can't tell if it's new management "trimming the fat" or if its a sign of the company going belly-up. The laptop you get to work with is so loaded down with security bloatware that it can barely run outlook.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that the hourly wage of your average worker is so much higher than the things you're cutting to save $ - If it takes 30 minutes to restart your laptop, that's $10 lost in productivity daily, or $2600 per worker per year. If they have to go to the store and get their own coffee maker, and brew their coffee the slow way, that might be $1000 per worker per year. It all adds up to huge losses in efficiency and morale at the cost of a few surface dollars. Do some real analysis on how you can save money.
