I worked at Academi as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent people, pay, and accommodations while deployed. Flights in and out of country were provided for and the admin in country was much better than other PMC's.

Cons

Middle management and admin/recruiters in Moyock were too far removed from the day-to-day operations of the ICs overseas. Recruiters specifically have trouble understanding and interpreting the military/PSS lingo.

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

    Pros

    The only pro is that this place was close to my residence.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about employees/contractors. It's all about the company/program and nothing else matters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that there is more to life than 'the program'. We have family's and other personal obligations that take priority over your schedule. An emergency on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine. Also, there are many within the program who have the education, skills, and ability to be contributors to the management of the program, but you refuse to take advantage of this and continually promote your buddy to a position that is beyond his capabilities. The result is failure. Take more pride in your employees/contractors and see what happens.

    Pros

    You are working with people that are on top of their game. At a higher tier level, guys on the ground are absolute professionals.

    Cons

    Reputation. Too many "episodes" that occurred in the past have diluted their name.
    Management. Too big, too fast is the common theme here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rebuild the brand
