    ConsSenior managers tend to do whatever the head of the office says, even if unethical.

    unprofessional work atmosphere

    Developer (Former Employee) Gaithersburg, MD

    Prosyou have a job.. thats all.

    ConsHighly unstructured. Unprofessional.. and managers are irresponsible. They have no idea what is going on in the project.. your work depends on your immediate contact or supervisor who could be a junior programer who know nothing about managing and delegating work. Biased towards male workers.

    Managers are arrogant. Talk only with other managers.They walk past you even after you greet them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Focussed on state mmis projects

    Program Manager (Former Employee) Gaithersburg, MD

    ProsMid size company with small size focus. Very MMIS customer focussed.

    Will not take a stand if customer is wrong.

    Horribly disorganized

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Olympia, WA

    ProsFlexible hours, free coffee, ping-pong

    ConsPoor documentation, immature processes, aggressive management, terrible pay

    Cold

    Development Manager (Current Employee) Rockville, MD

    ProsThey believe in socializing among themselves.

    ConsCompany caters to east Indians because they request rock-bottom salaries, they are controlled with Visas and do not hear, speak or do no evil. They hire only white management to shield their India and Pakistan descent to get Federal contracts. They do not promote blacks unless they are in trouble with EEOC.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe open culturally.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Looks good, but look closer.

    Network Engineer (Current Employee)

    Prosdecent pay
    health insurance was ok

    Consvery little communication
    benefits are not as good as they look (ie: looks like they match up to 6% with 401K, what they really do is match 6% of the 6% or .36%!!)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pay and benefits are good. Everything else? Not so much.

    (Former Employee)

    ProsThe work is groundbreaking and the employees are excellent. Employees are proud of their work and are very committed. There is definitely a family feel here. Working at home on occasion is not usually an issue (due to weather, child care, etc.).

    ConsThe Indian cultural difference is used as an excuse for the horrible communication among managers and employees; therefore, nothing is ever done to try to fix the problem. Women are not held in high regard as employees unless they have nice legs and/or wear high heels/skirts. Mid-management attempts to rule by fear and intimidation. When people leave the company, no announcements are ever made to the staff, regardless of the reason why the person left. HR is inadequate: they ask the group of employees to come forward with issues with management in the room. No real connection with senior management. No room for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate changes in staff so other employees know what is going on and why. Manage the middle management, they need a lot of help!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
