I worked at CACI (UK)

Pros

Pay is slightly above average and they have a good stream of contracts

Cons

The schedules are paramount and engineers must meet these schedules that are often based on inaccurate estimates and poorly defined requirements. As a result, the PM aspect is heavy, relentless and insensitive to obstacles and any mitigating issues. PM control is heavy, engineers are constantly judged and measured using fairly useless (but time consuming to produce) metrics and work life balance and morale frequently suffers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value and trust employees more and care as much about the employees as the imprecise schedules. Also, reassess the CMMI 5 goal as it creates a large amount of work to create metrics that are of little value, resulting in a net productivity and morale loss.
