    Don't try to low ball a potential employee.

    Pros

    I thought the company was pretty good, you will see a lot of variation though due to people being on different contracts. Within the company, there wasn't a ton of job growth on my particular contract...but that was fine, it was good for what it was at the time.

    Cons

    Not a ton of interaction between contracts. There would HAVE to be knowledge centers of excellence that could really add to the value added by CACI employees.

    Advice to Management

    Centers of Excellence...especially with obscure software, or stuff that isn't commonly used. Would make the contractors look good, and make CACI look even better.

    Pros

    You get to work from home & meet new people, learn about their lives

    Cons

    Unrealistic stat goals per month, low team morale, CACI pretty much absorbed USIS and inherited the company culture. I'm a new investigator and they laid my TL off who was helping me professionally. The hours are super long and I feel like they give you more work than 40 hours per week. It's draining.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the stats and focus on quality and timeliness.

    Pros

    A large company with formal processes and financial ability. Currently good pay and benefits. laid back work environment, not strict on when you arrive for work etc. Casual dress. Lots of really smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Company too large, processes too onerous, raises very low <1%. Layoffs with no severance, just a two month termination date. Uncertainty for the next 6 months, every six months. Management not fully forthcoming with information. Too much micromanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees. They are adults and can handle the truth. Your employees are there to make your business successful, not to take advantage of the situation. Trust them to do their job and allow them to do without micromanagement.

    Pros

    The pay is on the higher end of average, employees are great and intelligent, decent benefits package, steady paycheck, free gym at HQ in your region. There is opportunity to progress and move around. Most clients and coworkers are friendly and a pleasure to work with. Middle management is great.

    Cons

    The 401k plan is subpar at best. They will not match it until you've been with them for several years.

    Only 6 government holidays are honored, you need to use your flex holidays or PTO to cover those days. Many contracts do not allow remote work, so if there's bad weather (Assuming you're anywhere in the NE) you have to use your PTO time.

    Also, when starting out you only get 13 days PTO, that number stays the same for 2-3 years.

    Advice to Management

    If you want employees to stay, stop skimping on the benefits. While most companies are moving towards 3-4weeks PTO, you've been lowering PTO. Start matching 401k and set up a better process for managing benefits online. The current portal lacks navigation. Negotiate telework into contracts in the event of bad weather. Especially for employees based in areas that get hit bad with snow.

    Pros

    Working at a client site with a small team as its benefits. Awesome team lead and unmeasureable support from team members. The client is decent too. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    TOO MUCH CONTRACTUAL RED TAPE. Nearly impossible to get a raise despite being an exceptional employee. No merit promotions to be seen, despite consistently meeting goals. No upward mobility. The PM's mantra is "Just be lucky you have a job!" Who wants to consistently produce for that kind of leadership? The difficulty in retaining good employees is largely due to the aforementioned red tape and managerial style of the PM. Failure to recognize Veteran's Day as a company holiday is also questionable considering a number of employees are Veterans. I'd prefer that to a 'floating holiday'. Career opportunities within the company are also dismal (depending on the contract) considering that the salary is lower than average for the same position and responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Want to retain employees? Treat them well and pay them more. Give raises. Reward hard work and dedication. When an employee quits, It costs 150% of an employees salary to replace him. Let that marinate.
