    Ideal employer for those willing to work hard, apply themselves, and who are dedicated to learning more about business

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Fort Worth, TX

    ProsStrong company values for which people are held accountable; companywide sense of pride in the mission - people care about the work they are doing; opportunities to learn more to advance your career are limitless

    ConsMarket dynamics make this a challenging time for anyone who contracts with the U.S. government; not a place for those just looking to "show-up" each day who are not invested in the work they do
