    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

    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 Management

    Keep up the great work!

    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

    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

    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).

    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.

    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.
