Not trying to be everything and really caring about individuals

I have been working at Berico Technologies full-time

Pros

The engineers and the whole team are great. We''re working on some very cool things and management support ideas and trying new things. Unlike other companies I've been at, and friends work at now, no one is asking for charge codes for every second of your time. Some of the managers have organized sessions for discussing innovations based on what everyone is interested in. Very good benefits and open communications with everyone in the company accessible to talk about things.

Cons

Some of the team members are a little supremist on certain solutions, which can make them difficult to work with. Not sure how they ever survived in a larger company with more rules. Nothing worse than other personality things on engineering teams in most companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep trying to do big things, keep listening to ideas. I have friends in bigger companies that are reorganizing (for the 100th time) and getting stuck on boring work or getting laid off. Management hear actually tries to fit people with what they want to do and what they are good at. Refreshing.

    Pros

    Good dev. team with lots of talent and smarts. IT support staff is great. Analysts are smart and nice to work with. Program managers do their best to manage expectations of customers and the chaos of the business.

    Cons

    Ridiculous management that has destroyed the fabric of the company culture. Big promises, no delivery. Losing deals and current work. I've seen 17 people (out of maybe 70-80?) leave since like July or August, including managers who are 'abandoning ship'. The other reviews outline the problems well. Was a great company when I started, but I wish I would have gone somewhere else now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management IS the problem. I don't think they know what they're doing. You can't run a small start-up the same way you run a big business. And you can't treat the employees like dirt and expect them to show up everyday with dedication.

    Pros

    Great junior level staff, free healthcare, Some really great management.

    Cons

    The company's culture has really declined in the last year. The President gets a lot of blame, but most of that is misdirected. She really tries hard and believes in her people, but her counterpart has no clue about the defense industry let alone the software development culture.

    The organization changed from an organization that could band together during the toughest times (HB Gary), to a firm where people are just there to punch the clock. Add to that the string of painful losses, increased bureaucracy, and a tightening federal budget and you have a recipe for disaster.

    The great management at the firm is being greatly overshadowed by the poor management, and taking most of the blame for the failures.

    Many of the top lower level performers are leaving due to being under compensated, under appreciated or for better career growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Institute real 360 evaluations for all levels, come to work with an open mind, and treat your people like they are your best asset because they are critical to your success or to your failure.
