    Pros

    For entry-level jobs, there are opportunities if you're willing to accept below market pay. Mid-level job rates are better aligned with the market. The low bidder strategy initially got the company the lion's share of IT contracts, creating employment opportunities

    Cons

    Not too many opportunities to move up. One gets the sense that the company just cares about filling a job slot and keeping that slot filled indefinitely. Employees are always getting creative reasons why they will not get raises-even cost-of-living raises. The company fosters a culture where folks make decisions more for self-preservation rather than to benefit the company's mission. Benefits are not great but align with most companies in the market.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent. Provide real prospects with measurable goals for career growth by setting expectations and rewarding employees when they attain or exceed those goals. These types of actions will motivate employees to work even harder for the company because they feel like they are stakeholders in the company's success.
