    I have been working at Camber (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Camber employees are a tight knit group of people that have been tried by fire.

    Cons

    Camber recently went through an organization leadership change. Since they have came into "power", Camber has laid of close to 200 employees using the guise of "right sizing the business". More layoffs to come to make sure that the new leadership maximizes its profit upon selling Camber (which will probably happen in the next two years). There is no future here. You will not be promoted and you will be overlooked for any promotions. In addition, there is no mentoring or training program here. No growth. There has also been talk of doing away with our benefits package to generate more profit for leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with us. What are you doing to company that was once a wonderful place to work at? Offer us training and mentoring. Why would anyone want to work for a company that doesn't offer any self betterment options?

    I have been working at Camber full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fellow employees are talented and know how to get the job done.

    Cons

    Supervisor / Management individuals has no hours allocated to performing their tasks. Expected to be done in 'spare' time. Produces numerous miscommunications and misunderstandings. Newest high level management looking to squeeze the rest of the blood from the stone with no signs of positive feedback in pay raises, increased benefits, or advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on contract wins and proposals versus penny pinching and morale busting bean-counter philosophy. What young employees are you expecting to hire while using your present 'playbook' for growing the corporation?

    I worked at Camber full-time

    Pros

    As with all government consulting firms, day to day work culture depends on the client and program director. Camber offers decent benefits and good overhad support. VP of our division visited often and listened to feedback. Good career opportunities to move within company at different contracts

    Cons

    Telecommute is not an option, but this is not camber it is more client preference

    I worked at Camber full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.
