Not the same company I joined 7 years ago... granted it's also not the same market we've seen during the last 10 years.

Pros

Impressive coworkers that challenge you intellectually and professionally (for the most part); it's definitely still better than all the other "body factories," i.e. Sotera, GD, BAE, SAIC, etc. Firm is leading the way on Cyber, Cloud, and Big Data Analytics.

Cons

Firm has lost its differentiator as a company that "hires for a career." It's all about utilization now. If you're not client billable for more than a few weeks, it's "thanks, and good luck."

Advice to Management

Don't dilute the brand in your efforts to become more price competitive.

    Pros

    Great benefits and a good reputation within the community. Strong community relations program. Lots of training available.

    Cons

    Now that they are public them seem more concerned about the bottom line than about the extra perks within the firm.

    Advice to Management

    Forget the bottom line. Remember that your employees are what made you great.


  2. Great Place To Start Your Career

    Pros

    - Impressive colleagues
    - Engaged leadership
    - Many opportunities
    - Positive and professional reputation with various clients
    - Easy career growth if you meet the right people and develop leadership skills.
    - Starting a new technology track for engineers/developers that makes it easier to move up without doing proposal work.

    Cons

    - You go only as far as your own ambition. Do not expect your hand to be held, even if you are a fresh grad.
    - Not a lot of advertisement for extraneous work. You must network and seek these yourself.
    - The generous 401k matching is dropping down to industry standard levels.
    - Tuition reimbursement could be a lot better for their rising stars.
    - Hoteling; no set offices since most of us are on client site 24/7.

    Advice to Management

    - Like other corporations there is a lot of overhead. Some folks get away with performing poorly whereas some rockstars don't get noticed.
    - Engage all team members once in a while. Don't rely on the same people who are only in it for themselves.
    - Reinstate the amazing 401k plan prior to going public.
