    Pros

    Camber Corporation had the last phase of the Iran Litigation Team effort. My work on this project began in May 2005 with employment at PEC Corporation. This was followed by Nortel-PEC, Nortel Government Solutions, Incorporated, Avaya Government Solutions Incorporated, and finally Camber Corporation. Camber Corporation management, as the previous corporations, did an excellent job for our customers - US Navy Office of the General Counsel and State Department L/CID Office.

    Cons

    I have no negative criticisms of the Camber Corporation's Iran Litigation Team. The Contracting Officer always gave whichever company's team was under review for a given calendar year an excellent review grade.

    Pros

    Camber does not micro manage their employees.

    Cons

    The pay could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Cut back on overhead staff and provide the onsite employees with raises. They are the ones that make the company money.

    Pros

    While they continue to tinker with the benefits to improve the bottom line, they are still better than the average.

    Cons

    Since the new management took over, it is all about them and the staff. Long-term, loyal employees are kicked to the side make room for cronies that have connections to the new management team.

    Advice to Management

    Loyalty is a two way street. If you want loyal productive employees, then the company needs to be loyal to those people who worked so hard to get the company where it is.

    Pros

    Mature IT Company that is customer focused and employee driven. Camber supports a work life balance for all their employees. Their teams are creative and encouraged to take risks.

    Cons

    There are no Cons in my experience.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see Camber improve communications across all divisions. This would allow them to leverage resources to identify other business opportunities.

    Pros

    Camber is a strong mid-sized company located in Abingdon, MD and has an embedded contracting presence on posts at APG in Aberdeen and Edgewood, MD.

    Cons

    When your contract with APG a Camber embedded contractor is up there is little Camber support to retain your services.

    Advice to Management

    Greater lead time for end of contracts and greater support to embedded contractors.
