    I worked at EOIR Technologies as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    EOIR Technologies in Dahlgren was an awesome office experience and it was my first office environment job. Management was great and would give me positive reinforcement for my job and rewarded me with positive comments.

    Cons

    Slow-paced; I thrive in a fast-paced environment but that's the only con, and it's not even really a con because I still loved working there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Former Employee - Software Engineer
    Former Employee - Software Engineer

    I worked at EOIR Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Better communication with employees
    Better defined structure

    Pros

    EOIR is a decent company with approaching 400 employees. Great benefits and (for me) a great commute.

    Cons

    The area I work in needs to continue to diversify in their product offerings (work in progress).

    I worked at EOIR Technologies as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    They really try to find work for employees when contracts end. If can, they keep on payroll as they look for new opportunities for you.

    Cons

    May be over extending themselves into areas that they are not as strong to support which results in them losing the contract when it comes to re-compete.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at EOIR Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, room to grow DEPENDING on who you work for, able to work from home, okay benefits,can learn about new projects if boss allows you to try new things. Friendly staff, nice holiday parties, 15 days of vacation time, and small yearly bonus if you ask for it.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional Managers who are either never in the office or meet with you once a year. Most people in the office have nothing to do and management is never available to talk and when they are they are usually making fun of other employees. There are a few managers who are okay, but because you are constantly juggling different job responsibilities your managers change monthly, and sometimes you don't even know it! HR is unresponsive and if you complain too much of lack of direction, you will be let go or forced to leave. There is no job security here if you are under specific departments, one day you are in and another you are out.
    There is unfortunately no job direction either under most managers, there are some exceptions of course, but for the most part you won't ever know if you are wasting your time on something or not until the last minute.
    Some people there didn't even have annual reviews but got a small bonus -and there was no review because no one knew who managed them- the managers didn't even know who their managers were!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to come into the office and see who isn't at work (upper management) and take time to talk to the employees. Some people are being put on the wrong projects with totally different skill sets or some need more work, and are willing to learn and try new things. If someone was around to talk to the current employees you would see that you have a talented staff that is just being put in the wrong place or being given the wrong tasks.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at EOIR Technologies full-time

    Pros

    No micromanagement, business is growing in a sector that is currently shrinking, mostly competent and friendly employees. Very flexible about hours and working from home. Good benefits. Respect for time off and family needs.

    Cons

    Senior management has little to no contact with people under them, many employees report to nobody or are given conflicting info on who they report to, limited to no opportunities for mentorship/advancement, employees are expected to do work well outside the scope of their titles, many people complain of not having enough to do - this company is throwing away money. The management org chart is changed literally every single week...it's crazy. Management doesn't listen to employee concerns about the work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a management structure. Stop wasting money and talent. Communicate face to face with employees. Stop making constant management changes.
