    Pros

    - Little stress working for corporate, almost impossible to get fired for incompetence
    - Easy to stand out as a winner in a field of mediocrity
    - Highly flexible schedule and work hours
    - Very high salaries

    Cons

    - Highly unstable corporate outlook with several rounds of layoffs, poor recompete win %ages and lower funding in FY14 as compared to FY12 with six major acquisitions in the interim
    - decreased indirect costs too far. No paper or pens. Workers have to keep laptops for over 5 years.
    - No strategic vision on how to turn the company around
    - The 16th floor (executives) are a revolving door sucking high bonuses and salaries from the 'lowly workers'
    - No salary increases for a couple of years for non executives while executives are still pulling in millions in bonuses
    - All training and development programs have been cut
    -Management and employee problems go unaddressed for decades

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Radically change the corporate culture to focus more on efficiency and value and less on politics
    - Make individuals accountable for results
    -Provide your teams with the resources they need to get the job done or you're shooting yourselves in the foot

    Pros

    People who work here are very smart and talented.
    The company makes sure to emphasize ethics above all else.
    Depending on the client, work can be very rewarding.

    Cons

    Recent cuts have really hurt morale.
    Each project is like it's own individual company.
    There is no company identity beyond projects.
    Employees feel more connected to client than CACI.
    No training opportunities beyond generic computer base courses.

    Pros

    High salary; no bonus structure. While the bonus was very low; the salary was high enough to make up for the bonus

    Cons

    employer does not care about you. the culture ...well there isn't any.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the contract is over, learn how to be a professional services company. Either bench your consultants or re-tool your consultants. The Mobility program that they provide for employee's is non-existent. The mobility analysts are never available, not helpful, its a joke!

    The performance review happens and you are not aware of your goals or development. Everything was completed for me. This was a first for me.

    Pros

    If you are a billable employee, you're ok as long as the customer is pleased with you and can maintain their budget.

    Cons

    If you are an Indirect employee, you are constantly in fear for your job. There is a mass exodus due to layoffs every couple of months, and voluntary departures in large numbers.
    No raises for employees, yet purchase of multi million dollar acquisition, and looking for more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask questions of employees other than executives. There is a lot of information available for the asking. Then take some action. Perhaps the problem isn't in the lower salaried employees but a leadership failure...continuing to cut and cut and cut yet keep the same leadership with no apparent strategy is not working.

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

    Pros

    CACI is a well respected Defense Contractor and with many projects where you can grow and expand your career. I've been here for over 5 years and everyone, from junior analysts to senior management has been great. They offer competitive starting salaries and some projects do recognize individual efforts with bonuses. They have above average tuituion reimbursement and benefit options. They have really beefed up their internal training programs and learning opportunities for both technical and management career tracks. Most people work reasonable hours, have flexible schedules, and are able to work remotely (all project dependent).

    Cons

    CACI has recently implemented several cost cutting measures. There is a pay freeze, tweaks in 401k contributions, benefit (health/dental/etc) costs increasingly being passed to the employee, and previous office perks like free coffee are gone. Raises are often low and promotions do not always come with a noticable pay increase. They like to bring in outside talent rather than promoting from within, a practice they claim to be trying to change, yet continue to do frequently. You are evaluated you on your specific tasks and accomplishments, but your merit increase is based on averages of the whole company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strive to reward top talent and key performers. Continue to improve avenues of career development within the company to avoid employees being forced to seek external opportunities for growth. Turnover is more expensive and retaining good employees.

    Pros

    Excellent leadership, offers professional and personal growth, and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Contract driven. When contracts are lost, people lose positions. This is challenging given Federal Government reductions in personal services and solutions contracts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the outstanding efforts to grow and continued focus on employees.
