    Big enough to keep you challenged, small enough to maintain that family feel.

    I worked at Centurum full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay was good, the people are friendly and the management is fair. The company has more pros and cons.

    Cons

    When the work runs out, they'll try to keep the people they like. Shows favoritism or preference to certain employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Things are slow, good luck finding work.

    Pros

    Good attempts to maintain a family atmosphere, easy to communicate to upper management, and responsive project support.

    Cons

    The trouble with a smaller company is it's ability to keep the ship above water when the waves get a little too high. Little support for those stranded by the changing project environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate proactively with the lower staff and seek their engagement in business development, individuals may sacrifice a few hours from time to time to help the larger company succeed and ensure their own continued positions.

  5.  

    Great people, positive atmosphere, and limited flexibility sum up this small company. Struggled through some downsizing.

    Pros

    Great opportunity if you are in the position you already want. Tries to keep you involved where possible, attempting to expand.

    Cons

    Limited career advancement and professional growth opportunities, rely on outside hiring. Decentralized management can cause issues with feedback.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop the employees you have to fill the future needs of the business, implement plans to increase the employees marketability to future clients.

    I have been working at Centurum

    Pros

    The management staff is professional and provides its employees with everything they need while deployed. They are a sub contractor for L-3 Communications which I don't like but it's not Centurums fault. The pay is excellent compared to other contracts I have seen while deployed.

    Cons

    They do not permit you to sell back your leave if it is unused at the end of your contract and they do not pay for your flight while on leave when most other defense contracting companies do both.

    I have been working at Centurum

    Pros

    Centurum has a good work environment. Most of the local Charleston employees share a 2-person office and management has their own. Company regularly has picnics and luncheons.

    Cons

    Centurum is a small company for a defense contractor. The recent years have had some major fluctations (increases) in the cost of benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While it is great that management is not micromanaging, it is still nice for offsite (non office) personnel to see/hear from their program/project manager more than once every two weeks.

    Pros

    The leadership at Centurum is awesome. They will always be there to help you with any issues they might encounter.

    Cons

    You have to be gone all the time, which is the only problem with them. Otherwise, they are great. Awesome company.

    I have been working at Centurum

    Pros

    Centurum is a pretty good company to work for. The other employee are very friendly and professional. Human resources is very helpful and respond quickly to questions.

    Cons

    While Centurum does a good job of putting you in a job position which meets your qualifications, opportunity to advance is not freely provided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe Centurum Inc. should actively provide the employees opportunities to advance. As we are subs under a contract, we should be able to compete with the prime contractor employees.
