    Great company if you're in the right place.

    IT Analyst (Current Employee)
    Reston, VA

    ProsA great benefit package for a private company. Good middle managers and a "family" atmosphere. Company is going places and doing well. Decent pay.

    ConsDespite the company having an excellent balance sheet, they are stingy with funds for training or headcount. My position is understaffed by a factor of 2:1 or more. This results in problems for the customers and business areas. In their defense, this is a particular problem with IT where snake oil salesmen with Cloud computing and management pandering Gartner group make unrealistic claims so they think anything is possible.)

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe ahead of the curve on IT rather than following industry trends and claims from 10 years ago promising magical results that are not happening. Listen to your customers and business areas.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Classic corporate brainwashing

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Reston, VA

    ProsLarge monopoly thus jobs are mainly secure if you are performing ok or good.

    ConsSenior Management dreams to compete with certain companies are making already messed up processes get even worse, and brainwashing with agile and lean processes combined with fake care for employees is sometimes pushing great talents to walk away!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet real, provide better vision since one you are propagating now is often ridicules, and start appreciating hard work by your employees or you will loose even more good talent which is now days actually harder to find and retain! Be more fair when it comes to annual reviews and rewards for the employees! Reduce number of management, company is extremely top heavy!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
