    Pros

    Family feel, good training, support remote work, good benefits, open door to managers and president

    Cons

    financial unstable, within the last 6 months changed severance policy and after 15+ years, no severance was paid

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    conduct yourselves more professionally and give clear guidance as to expectations. its nice to have a manager who cares about your personal life, but at the end of the day, business is business

    I have been working at Circle Solutions full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, excellent family/work balance. I enjoyed my work and have great respect and admiration for my direct supervisor and co-workers.

    Cons

    Executive management did not diversify and was unable to trim fat that was eating up overhead dollars, the result, a downward spiral. The company is now at bare bones and attempting to rebuild, however, they kept some of the same overhead. During a very large layoff, the executive team was no where to be seen or heard from. Too little too late.

    I have been working at Circle Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Family friendly, flexible schedules, opportunities for telework when needed. Also some great personalities among the staff -- a very pleasant place to work. Nice location convenient to Metro's new Silver Line (Greensboro station).

    Cons

    Over-reliance on one or two key large, long-term contracts. Frequent layoffs lately as contracts end with no new work to take their place. Fairly top-heavy, and the current environment/atmosphere is definitely one of downsizing and belt-tightening. Very little support for professional development. A company that has reacted/adapted poorly to shifts in government contracting, and is now playing catch-up.

    I worked at Circle Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Company is very oriented toward its employees and most members of upper management have good intentions. Free parking. Nice offices.

    Cons

    Resistant to change and slow to adjust course, especially considering the (small) size of the company. Top heavy with executives and managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to clients. Involve staff at all levels in planning. Regularly evaluate whether executives and managers are still qualified for their positions.

    I worked at Circle Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Overall it was very positive. Working relationships were collegial, if not downright friendly.Support from the company. A feeling of belonging and accomplishing something worthwhile in people's lives across the country.

    Cons

    As a Government contractor, budgets shrank. As the company also shrunk people were laid off. Leadership changed and people don't feel like they belong as much.

    A lack of direction started even when the management said they were setting direction. They did not get rid of people who should have left and were hurting the company.

    Has great potential... but middle management gets in the way

    I have been working at Circle Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Family friendly. Promotes work-life balance. Pleasant work atmosphere. Employee activities that enrich time at work. Telecommuting options. Approachable senior management.

    Cons

    Limited options for advancement. Lack of training for contract management. Redundant workflow process. Middle management (contract) belittles client, HR, and subordinates. Very tense and high stress work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some training for the mid-level managers on your largest contract! High turnover is related to managers who do not know how to M-A-N-A-G-E.
