I worked at Buchanan & Edwards full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Pay is above average and the office space is top notch.

Cons

Management just doesn't get it. They lack clear focus and some director positions are revolving doors--one month you are reporting to one person, the next someone else. They are undergoing significant growing pains that may just tear them apart. Also one of the most politically driven places I have ever had the displeasure of working at.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn how to focus and be more decisive in your decisions. Listen to your subordinates because they can offer you a perspective that you are oblivious to in your glass tower!

    I have been working at Buchanan & Edwards full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Access to Microsoft Developers network.

    Cons

    All most all assignments are with the Federal government and the work is on-site with the client. Company management often times is not in the same location so there is no one to provide the buffer from the client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider putting your managers WITH the people they are responsible for. Also, have the managers periodically have a group meeting with their direct hires. Employees often feel like they are hanging out in the wind and vulnerable to the whims of the client.
