    Pros

    Good people, many worked in the company for years and watched the company change quite dramatically in recent years. Overall, a very fast paced work environment, can be challenging and very interesting.

    Cons

    Over the last several years the company has been going through a continuous reorganization while trying to change its strategy and improve financial performance. As a result. its turning into a revolving door environment with top level management being replaced every 9-12 months. This is very demoralizing for employees, as nobody feels safe or really appreciated - anybody can be laid off at any time, regardless of their actual merits and performance. Communication across organization is very week and the strategy seems to change all the time. Good performers are looking to leave and many do, before yet another round of "reorganization". This puts more and more burden to do more with less on the remaining workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job of communicating with employees, there is an urgent need to boost morale across the company. Don't just tell them that they are your main asset. In order to start growing again, you need to stabilize the company, set the strategy and then stick to it and deliver before making yet another change. Mgmt has not only an obligation to show positive results to the Wall Street, but to its employees first who actually make the achievement of those results possible.

    Pros

    Was excited when I got hired with this company to work as a contractor overseas. They provided training, good pay, and decent health benefits.

    Cons

    Tries to get over on employees by trying to force them to sign revised contracts. Once I got overseas within a few months they sent an email requesting all the guys in my team to sign paperwork. Come to find out it was our contracts that were altered to benefit them. There was also poor communication between management and employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to details and don't make promises you know you can't fulfill

    Pros

    A big company but each division felt and acted like a small company. There was always opportunity to try out new things.

    Cons

    A big company that had a lot of trappings of a big company. When I left in 2013, the division I was in was in flux.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people clear direction of where the company is heading.

    The field of information technology, important subject matter in support of the US war fighter. Growth is steady after year 3. Promotions depend on hard work, flexibility, and ability to learn.

    Cons

    multiple layers of management, slow pace followed by intense pace - repeat. could use more on the job training opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more of a personal investment in your individual employees.
