    I worked at CACI International

    Pros

    Work-life balance was very good and dependent upon contract, and the staff are extremely hard workers.

    Cons

    Compensation is low, seems geared towards military retirees that have another income. Once contract ends, there is very little support for finding new contracts to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better assistance to staff when contracts are ending so they can stay employed.

    I have been working at CACI International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The first line supervisors can be very easy to work with.

    Cons

    With the loss of work for USIS, CACI has become money hungry. Most of the new employees make more money than the legacy staff. Management and HR are not interested in providing rectification. Opportunities for growth were promised for legacy staff, but this is only if you know someone or if you are willing to take a pay cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bad business practices and treat legacy staff properly by ensuring equal pay and benefits. Promote investigators with pay raises in new jobs, not cuts.

    I have been working at CACI International as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    CACI employs talented people. Their recruiters work with you in a professional manner and are timely in coordinating interviews and providing timely feedback. The benefits are also fairly competitive with other Defense Contractors.

    Cons

    Like most Defense Contractor employment, you will be assigned to a client site and never see a CACI office again. However, that is part of the bargain when you sign up to be a contractor. Also, goals and objectives for career growth are really never discussed with you during your tenure. It's all about pleasing the client which might not be a bad thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to get out and meet your people.
