    I worked at CACI International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    great pay, good work, lots of growth and career opportunities

    Cons

    Work ethics are questionable at this specific location. Did not follow through on employment agreements.

    Advice to Management

    investigate behavior of contract and all levels of personnel, because the end results may harm you more.

    Pros

    Ethical, client focused, great supervisor

    Cons

    I fear they may start to become like USIS if not careful. This is not CACI's fault. OPM needs to make changes.

    I have been working at CACI International (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great mentoring program, and good opportunities for training - especially if you're interested in project management. Decent benefits - but these are getting worse over time (of course, this is where the company cuts when it tightens the belt - at the employee level), but they are still decent.

    Cons

    Like someone else mentioned, "Every employee is just a number and if your contract ends so does your employment. There is very little effort to help place employees after they lose coverage regardless of whether they are a performer. " There are few opportunities for communications professionals, so it's especially heinous when your contract is on the verge of ending. Not necessarily a great place long-term, especially if you're not management. Turnover is a constant problem where I'm at, and I can see why it is - because you're a commodity that is easily tossed aside. It's terrible on a yearly basis to wonder if your next option will be exercised or not, and then at the end of the option years have to look for a job. And, if you have a difficult client, the "client is always right" and you have to put up whatever abuse or shenanigans they dish up. I get this thinking from the CACI perspective - AND, I see where taken to the extreme many of the people who work hard to bring the contract home put up with miserable work environments. And there's not much thanks along with that. Government contracting has changed - contracts are much shorter term than they used to be, and contractors are not compensated for this increased risk of losing employment. And management gives no appearance of caring, not acts like it cares. Pockets of the company still display an old-boy mentality towards women that is oppressive and demeaning. Women - beware - it's like Russian Roulette. And if you get the bullet shot at you, there's a chance you will be the one doing the advocacy for yourself and it could be a tough battle. Bullying outside protected classes or that is in the gray area has not been addressed seriously in the CACI culture. Performance reviews? Now you get shoved into a bell curve. On a high performing team, managers are forced to put their folks on a bell curve. HIGHLY DIMINISHES your chance of ever making financial progress. And since I've been with CACI, seen no COLAs.

    Advice to Management

    Train EVERYONE RIGOROUSLY in diversity. Be a leader like you claim to be as far as integrity, and take freedom from discrimination a step further - define bullying in the workplace and make it unacceptable. Find some model that works better so people aren't thrown away after a contract. When we feel unvalued due being treated like a commodity, stuck on a bell curve performance wise and not compensated or appreciated for good work, and when you keep decreasing benefits - we will not make you our employer of choice in the future. If this is your talent management approach, what you're doing so far, it's dismal. You may preach integrity, yet your employees are just gears in a wheel that are used up and thrown out. Yes, you have good things - definitely not the worst company, but not an employer of choice. I know things are hard, but there has to be some creative way to address it for your employees, because you are losing them - they are jumping ship - and your long-term problem will finding the best and the brightest you need to keep your reputation and succeed as a company. Find a way to really practice what you preach.

    Pros

    Great people, great culture, great benefits. CACI has paid nearly $10k towards my Master's Degree in the past year (paying up to 12% of salary per year with threshold of $10k).

    Cons

    No real cons aside from loss of coverage due to end of contract.

    I have been working at CACI International part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    CACI provides good vacation time (4 weeks if you've been with CACI for 3 years or more). They also provide 401k matching, 50% for the first 6% (after a 3 year vesting period) and an employee stock purchase plan. The culture at the CACI building in Aberdeen Proving Ground is VERY positive.

    Cons

    When your project ends there is limited support - no severance, no career transition services. Of course, there is a lot of job hopping between contractors by employees, so to some extent it's simply the nature of contracting. CACI also has lower base salaries than other contracting companies. I'm not an expert on health benefits, but I get the impression that CACI beneft's are competitive

    Advice to Management

    Keep showing heart. That inspires people more than money.
