    I have been working at EOIR Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    EOIR's atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. Management is both personable and empowering. The day to day work is challenging and enjoyable.

    Cons

    Honestly, there's nothing negative I can say about EOIR. Although tasks may change suddenly from time to time, I see that as a plus.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Keep showing personal interest in employees and their success.

    I have been working at EOIR Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Pay is OK. Work is OK. Dress is casual. Beats selling a kidney for money, though, I do have 2 kidneys.

    Cons

    Awful benefits, only 3% 401k match. HR needs a real HR person in charge. This company will get sued big time some day. Back office people think engineers work for them. Raises are a joke. Everyone gets "COLA". No incentive to excel. No training.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a real HR person. Get some real benefits. Break the company into two companies, SEPI and ICI. Let the back office people got to SEPI.

    I have been working at EOIR Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, Competitive pay and a nurturing work environment.

    Cons

    Contracting world, EOIR was a subcontractor to another entity. The span of the contract left a lot to be desired. One year with two optional one year extensions did not allow for an employee to make future plans either in professional life nor in the home environment. This is not a fault of EOIR however, but more a problem within the system of contracting with the Govt.

    Advice to Management

    Strive to be a prime instead of a subcontractor. Also, try to push for longer contracts.

    Pros

    Great people Entrepreneurial culture Interesting projects Up and coming company Relaxed and inclusive environment Not your typical stodgy govt contractor

    Cons

    Rapid growth and acquisition of other companies has caused growing pains. Systems and processes have not kept up with growth which cause frustrations Lots of changes to org chart Government contractor industry is shrinking resulting in less stability and opportunity

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to focus on formalizing systems and processes to catch up with growth in size over last few years Try to expand into areas outside defense

    I have been working at EOIR Technologies full-time

    Pros

    No micromanagement; people are encouraged to try new things; salary and benefits are excellent; hours and dress are flexible; many people allowed to work from home.

    Cons

    Management only communicates with staff when they need something, and it's almost always at the 11th hour. Otherwise nobody knows anything about what's going on other than a newsletter that comes out a few times a year. There is little to no advance planning for anything. They are often inappropriate (sexual innuendo, rude and crass comments about other staff). I'm sometimes worry that they open themselves up to a lawsuit in this regard. And the org chart is constantly changing. Very unstable environment in that way. The Virginia office (HQ) refuses to work with the other offices and has their own staff for tasks that should be shared across the company. Senior management seemingly has no control over them and they ignore all requests from other offices. IT might as well not exist for as little help as they offer the other offices. Employees often have to wait over two weeks after their start date to even get a computer.

    Advice to Management

    Come to the office from time to time and communicate with your employees. And not just when you need something. Make the VA office integrate with the other offices. Let your staff know what's expected of them and don't just toss out new tasks to groups of people with no explanation or division of duties. If you're too busy, then delegate your workload instead of giving your staff the short end of the stick with your time and direction.

    Pros

    Good benefits Flexible hours + Able to work from home Heavy use of Mac/Unix machines instead of windows boxes Great environment + People

    Cons

    There wasn't a lot of organization or structure in the offices. One or two people are "in charge" and basically everyone else works on their own project. Work comes in waves, so sometimes you're bored out of your mind, and sometimes you're working 60 hours a week or more.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with employees Better defined structure
