    Pros

    - Decent work life balance and salary

    - Nearly guaranteed vested 10% bonus (cannot receive full 10% until 5-year mark; receive nothing if you leave before 2-years)

    - Sympathic, pretty smart and cool peers over-all. You watch out for each other

    Cons

    - Sweatshop

    - Terrible, incompetent supervisors (Front Line Leaders)

    - Treated like absolute crap by military and DoD clients

    - Since going public, the company does not care about you at all; can be fired at any time; no job security

    Advice to Management

    Be more careful with choosing Front-line Leaders; cut those on client site some slack. It is utterly miserable.

    Pros

    Outstanding people. Great Benefits. Lovely facilities.

    Cons

    Massive overemphasis on business development. You could be the best engineer, analyst, whatever. If you're not putting in 10+ hours of biz dev time a week, on top of your "regular" job, you're not going to get promoted. As a result, a good-old-boy network runs the firm, AND insures that most of the rewards go to the "Upper Three" grades.

    Advice to Management

    Create a non-management path. We don't ALL want to be managers. . .
