Good place for complacency

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Chantilly, VA

Pros- Good place for complacency and get paid decent for it!
- Good place to learn "what not to do" in the professional work force
- Good place to learn what bad management is all about
- Depending on which office/site you work at, you may land in a good group. The management in that group will take into account your needs for career growth and will try to motivate you with awards and incentives rather than fear.
- I would recommend this company to a friend. If that friend is just looking for a paycheck and a job to pass the day.

Cons- Good, motivated employees usually leave within 2 years.
- Lack of opportunity for growth. Get pigeon-holed.
- Unprofessional HR Department.
- Again I can't lump all management together, but many of the upper management are unmotivated, and have outdated thinking.
- Get stuck in the mentality of "that's how we do things".
- A revolving door company. Very focused on just the bottom line - everyone is expendable.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't kill new ideas and enthusiasm by saying "that's not how we do things".
Realize and recognize your top performers. (before they leave)
Let go of the non-performers, bad-performers, and toxic-performers. They are only discouraging the good employees, and pushing them out of the door faster.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
