    They're fair and even-handed with employees, but it's a typical contract experience.

    Pros

    Direct supervisors are good people who actually care about you as an employee.

    I worked at CACI International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Used to be a fun and rewarding position. Good benefits. Great co-workers. Great for veteran retirees who don't have many service connected disabilities.

    Cons

    Disorganized. Promised pay raises and bonuses never came. Pay is not competitive to contractor counterparts in DoL, DoD, or other Dept of VA. Advertised as salary, but paid according to amount of hours worked. Very high attrition. Position answers to CACI, Calibre Systems, Dept of VA, Dept of Defense, and host military branches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with new hires. Treat your employees with the earned respect and professionals they deserve. Stop manipulating employee hours worked. Stop gaming the system while not rewarding employees.

    The coworkers I had were amazing, and a pleasure to work with. That's about it.

    Dishonest management, overworked, value workaholics over family.

    Be honest to your employees. Even if it hurts. They appreciate it.

    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.

    Good company.

    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.

    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.
