I have been working at Aquilent full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Co-workers, HR team, ethical company, culture, benefits, track record of success. I was actually compelled to write a review because my experience has not at all reflected some of the other reviews on this site. The environment / culture may not for everyone. I find it very rewarding to work with such smart, driven and helpful people.

Cons

Need for better communication throughout the company

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work to find ways to include more employees in corporate inititatives

    I worked at Aquilent full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    HR team was great! Some of my former co-workers were top notch. A few interesting projects and decent work. Nothing cutting edge for sure and only the long time employees get a shot at the good work despite some of their lack of high end work experience.

    Cons

    It is a good ole boy atmosphere. Great if you like that sort of management style and coworker attitude. Not everyone, but the long time employees there are very reluctant to engage newer employees. I was told it was because they let go new people when there isn't enough work which is often. Very stifling office atmosphere in Laurel as not many people talk to one another and the location is ghetto. A lot of promises made but very little kept by management and they go after work without the talent to perform the work. A sweatshop in disguise and once I figured that out I got out. It is the trailer park of IT service companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where do I start? You should know something is wrong with your approach when there is such a high turnover rate.

    Pros

    - Ability to own your job. No micro-management here.
    - Fun atmosphere with lots of activities after hours
    - Knowledgeable co-workers helps to get the job done in a quality way

    Cons

    - Slow hiring process makes it difficult to staff up when needed
    - Short-staffed for "non-billable" type of work such as proposals and BD makes it difficult if that is part of your job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Rethink how BD and proposals are done - maybe staff up on overhead
