I worked at BCS

Pros

- Provides opportunities for young professionals, particularly those who have recently graduated from college, to begin a career in government contracting
- Great stepping stone for new careers and for those with an interest in content related fields
- Small company feel, certainly not just "a number"
- Offers hands on experience working directly with government clients

Cons

- Job postings did not accurately reflect the work expected to be performed
- Compensation was well below that of comparable positions with firms in the metro DC area ($10-25k below)
- Employee compensation was tied to the amount of funding individual employees accrued for the company above accolades and reviews from government clients
- Limited room for professional development and career advancement within the company in accordance with recognized accomplishments and skills
- Employees were expected to solicit new and continued funding on behalf of the company with no additional compensation
- Management style operated under negative reinforcement philosophy providing little incentive or reward for improvement

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value and reward employees appropriately for the work that they perform in order to build loyalty and reduce the high turnover rate.
