    I have been working at Electronic Consulting Services full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Delivery excellence and employee welfare are top concerns with this Company. I have had nothing but positive experiences and excellent support from coworkers and the company staff since joining. You couldn't pick a better company to work for in the challenging and fluid consulting and federal contracting world.

    Cons

    I have not experienced any Cons thus far. I am really satisfied working for this Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Electronic Consulting Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Open Communications and focused on putting the customer first. Sincere interest in promoting talented people from within the company. The management team seems to recognize the need for faster technology adoption. Also, focused on growth through acquisition, which theoretically should create opportunities for advancement. Company is also family oriented and throughs a nice holiday party.

    Cons

    Tough industry. The government doesn't seem very interested in quality these days and are more focused on cost at the expense of experience, so company is cutting cost to keep winning contracts. Could be trouble in the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be consider expanding beyond government.

    If you are searching for Corporate Leadership and Ethics, keep looking. Caveat Emptor.

    I have been working at Electronic Consulting Services full-time

    Pros

    1 Technical environment
    2. Opportunities for entry level staff
    3. Good hard working people working with you as your peers.

    Cons

    The 95k question. As mentioned by other reviewers, ECS is a profitable company. But don't come here expecting salary increases, bonuses or incentives. Check the salary page for below average industry pay.

    Public records linked off this site show the uglier side, where corporate evidently takes care of their own, keeping a terminated executive for 2 months, to pay out a massive annual bonus? Yet staff are told there is no money and no raises. Know what you are getting into.

    Caveat Emptor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The culture starts from the top. Isolated fiefdoms allow unethical behavior. You either knowingly stay blind to it or support it. Either way it infects your business and costs you in the long run.

    Pay more attention if you really want to compete with Lockheed, SAIC and the other major industry firms.

    I have been working at Electronic Consulting Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1. The firm is doing well financially.
    2. Competent staff.
    3. Very responsive administrative support.

    Cons

    1. The salary increases are a joke. I am part of a team that just won a 5-year contract (re-compete). The average salary increases ranged between 0 - 1.5%.
    2. Limited communication across the board (especially from executive management).
    3. Executive and senior management are not proactive. They prefer to react after the house has burned down.
    4. There does not appear to be a firm culture. The culture is contract dependent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. If you want to retain good people, pay them what they are worth. After all, you have the money.
    2. Make more of an effort to communicate with staff (especially those at client sites).

    Pros

    Compensation is not below average. The company appears to be doing fairly well so those still there seem not to face an immediate threat to lose job.

    Cons

    Very minimal communnications from upper management. Appears to concentrate on staffing to position not concerned about building compenentcies focused on bottom line growth is through acquisition not strategic growth.

    Pros

    I liked the owner, he seemed to care.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the owner either did not know or did not understand that his management team treated people badly. I don't feel overall the company cares about its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating people better and stop being so bureaucratic.
