    I worked at Aquilent for more than a year

    Pros

    Very up and coming extremely talented individuals that work very hard. They balance work with some very nice social events. Loved working in a company that utilized new technology.

    Cons

    As Heidi Klum would say - one day you're in and the next day you're out. Staffing was forever fluxuating. If you didn't do things their way regardless of your expertise, you're out! Their turnover rate is excessive as they do not carry a bench.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No one in upper management has large government contractor experience. If you hire a SME, assume they are a SME - they might just know more than you!

    I worked at Aquilent full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I spent five fairly happy years at Aquilent, and I learned a great deal from my colleagues. The company is just small enough that you can feel like you're making a difference *if* you're willing to put in the work and reach beyond your job description. If you get involved in Business Development there, then you've got it made. The culture is very collegial. The consultants there are very bright, but you don't get a lot of hyper-inflated egos.

    Cons

    If you're not careful, you can find yourself body-shopped onto a long-term drudge gig.

    One of the members of the senior leadership is Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. He can be nice to you one day and then really insulting the next.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get Dr. Jeckyll some better medication.
