Pros

Smart people, quality work being done. Contributing to important missions within the government consulting field.

Cons

Hard to move around within the company. Work-life balance could be better. Employees willing to sacrifice their personal life and time probably would do great.

    Pros

    Um... they have a bad Asian deli/cafeteria on site? Is THAT a pro?

    Cons

    ZERO stability unless you're a C-level talking head. The work is tired. The "defense" (e.g. bilking the government) field is soul-sucking. Incompetence rises as the titles get bigger. Bureaucracy, incompetence, haves and have-nots culture. WAAAAY too many self-inflated, alpha types in the building justifying their existence with unnecessary comments, edits etc. Horribly inefficient. And like many/all defense contractors, they're skirting around labor laws by employing predominately contract workers. Nice. Very "patriotic."

    Advice to Management

    Curb the greed and reward the long-time employees, not the C-level greed mongers.

  2. Good Company to work for, fairly compensated.

    Pros

    There are opportunities to get into very interesting work with great people, and you can be compensated for that work fairly.

    Cons

    Lots of organization that can be difficult to work through. A lot of your experience is tied directly to your group within the organization. Can have very dramatically different experiences based on your group or delivery team.

    Easy to get "stuck" on long running contracts/projects
