    Pros

    Not a lot of overhead. Go to the client put your hours in and get a paycheck. Annually you have to do 4 hours of mandatory training.

    Cons

    Just another federal contractor that tries to tell the story that they are different from the others, but they are not. The industry is so homogeneous that all the big ones look the same. CACI is really cheap on the 401k front. Really low company match that they hold in reserve till the end of the year. Leave before the end of the year and they keep it. Pretty weak in my opinion.

    Pros

    Decent colleagues and decent salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Little room for advancement. Additionally, when a contract is finished, so are you.

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate good employees. Do more than say "it's what the client wants" in response to any inquiry.

    Pros

    It is a large company that serves many government agencies specializing in cleared work. The overall mission of being a defense contractor is fulfilling.

    Cons

    On the government contract that I served, CACI management was horrible compared to other defense contracting companies. Managers would not communicate effectively to the government customer and would always throw their employees under the bus. They constantly stabbed employees in the back. It was a great contract in terms of the customer, the team, and the work, but everyone started to leave due to poor management. I've heard from other CACI employees who were on other contracts and their stories were comparable to mine. I think that you could have a decent career there depending on your specific contract and management team; however, I would consider other government contracting companies first. I have worked for other defense contractors where management looked out for their employees and CACI is not one of them. Beware!

    Advice to Management

    Instead of using scare tactics and intimidation, learn how to be leaders and inspire your teams. Focus on training and effective communication.

    Pros

    When I started @ CACI in 2012 I was amazed at the orientation and training opportunities provided; they truly invested in staff.

    Cons

    Since sequestration, and many reorganizations, support from HQ is waning. As with most gov't funded jobs, it is really the project and the people you work with, not the corporate structure. Herzberg would call that a Hygiene factor, not a Motivating factor.

    Advice to Management

    Drop the Success Factors; waste of time and money. Read the book Hard Goals and create a plan around that approach.

    Pay your employees more money
