    Pros

    I enjoyed working for EDC.I worked offsite in a government facility and the management team made sure we felt included. They visited the site often and they were engaged with the employees and took any comments or concerns seriously.

    Cons

    The benefits have improved since the time I started but they could improve in the cost to the employee. They now provide a 401K.

    Pros

    EDC provides an exceptional place to work. The senior executives are highly accessible and enable a positive, respectful work environment. Achievements are publicly recognized and rewarded. The company does a super job fostering individual growth both inside EDC and elsewhere. Achieving personal aspirations is respected and encouraged.

    Cons

    EDC isn't the right place for an average contributor because the work is challenging and often influenced by government contracting requirements. It is a fast paced, agile work environment which I enjoy but others favoring more structure and distinct division of duties may not.

    Pros

    HR team do what they can, but they have little to know input. May concern with the company seems to be having the ability to blame others.

    Cons

    Sexism and racism runs rampant throughout the company. There were several times members should have filed lawsuits, but they let it go because they didn't want to deal with the fallout. That is one of the many dysfunctional groups in this company. People cannot communicate at all in that group or other groups. They walk down the hallway with their iPhones plugged in to avoid eye contact and conversations with other workers. Leadership has no social skills nor do any of his team members.

    Pros

    EDC is a fantastic and growing company and also exciting place to work. Hard work is definitely rewarded and the company culture is both professional and progressive.

    Cons

    As with everything associated with the government, ebbs and flows come through fairly regularly when it comes to delayed timelines or hurried expectations.

    Pros

    If I could think of even a single pro, I would then list it here. I guess the good thing is that it was close to home.

    Cons

    Until June 1, 2013 there were NO benefits to full time employees. Now they have a whopping 50k life insurance, a simple IRA, some vision and medical. Before that time there were no benefits to speak of. They would not reimburse me for official travel, they do not reimburse for parking, the cons of this company are vast.

    Advice to Management

    Find some folks who actually have leadership abilities.
