    Great until 2012 corporate reorganization...then went downhill fast.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsI can't think of any right now.

    ConsThe new organizational model is horrible. Prior to the reorganization, my PM or someone local was my manager. They knew me...I knew them. They conducted my performance appraisal, if I had issues/concerns that I could not resolve, they were the person that I reached out to. They held "all hands" meetings for our team, they were able to reach out to my contract and ascertain about my performance. After the reorganization, my functional manager was in Florida...I worked in Maryland. They had no idea of who I was, my background, the work I did or the customer I supported. I was actually assigned to the wrong organization...but no one could figure out how to get me reassigned. In the year since the reorganization I heard from my functional manager twice...once to tell me I was receiving a raise....then the next time to tell who to contact because I was being laid off.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRethink the organizational/reporting structure.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Okay place to start. Not a place to grow.

    Software Tester (Current Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsIt was relatively easy to get my career started here; nevertheless I would still not recommend to begin a software testing career here.

    ConsAs a software tester; I find that it is relatively hard to advance my career here. The benefits aren't so great either.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I feel stuck here with no way to move up in my current field

    IT Administrator (Current Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsThey pay money for you to go back to school

    ConsYou always find yourself doing more work for less pay and when people quit or are fired they dont replace them

    Advice to Senior Managementthink of the little guy

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ConsManagement takes all the credit for the work their employees have done. job security is pretty low since they can and will replace you at any time.

    Literally the worst place I ever worked

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsHoliday schedule, able to work from home, though management discouraged it.

    ConsThe PTO iniative where we were required to use up our PTO so that the company would look better to investors, old, outdated equipment, company does not seem to place a priority on innovating and updating software, benefits are terrible. They chose to cap STD benefits for pregnancy at 6 weeks, I had an emergency c-section and was required to stay home for 8 weeks, and the company wouldn't pay because to have offered the longer STD for c-sections cost more and they didn't want to pay for the richer benefit. Mandatory OT is a given. Was also "punished" by being given the most undesirable tasks and never placed on special projects because, I was told I didn't have to do them while I was home on maternity leave. This is a violation of my Civil Rights.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRein in your management, loosen up your pocketbooks. You can not attract and keep top talent with things the way they are.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Decent environment, average pay, lousy HR policies

    Technical Specialist (Former Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsGood offices, fair working conditions, decent hours

    ConsSubject to no notice termination and have to fight for your unemployment benefits as the company will claim 'for cause' with no reason or documentation justifying that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees better than this.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
