Pros

- Diversified company operating across many market segments. This provides long term stability and many opportunities horizontally and vertically within the company.
- Total compensation package is very competitive, especially for members with proven work ethic, hands-on experience, current and relevant industry certifications and college education.
- Sky is the limit on your career. Your manner of performance is recognized and rewarded.
- Company offers industry certification and education re-imbursement that supports your professional development goals.

Cons

- 401K match is not the greatest, but at least they have a plan, something is better than nothing.
- On-boarding a bit cumbersome and back office response to correct issues lags.
- The direct labor members, who generate some of the company's profit and whose work performance helps win re-competes, tend to get short end of profit sharing stick.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Keep up great work providing strong, diversified, growing company that creates jobs!
- Don't try to be smartest person in the room, pride is good, but it can get in the way of success; coach and mentor instead.
- Pass more profit participation (bonus) down to lower levels, highly compensated executives don't need it as much as some members, especially the ones working in economically depressed areas.

    Pros

    Nice company for start ups those are from college directly.

    Cons

    If your manager wants to replace you due to discrimination , then they will ask you for resignation. If you don't, then they will send you to special program and they will make sure you will fail it, eventually they will terminate you in 30 days. So when you asked to resign, then just resign. Do not fight with any one.
    You should be ready any time to get another job. They advertise that they do not have any lay-offs in order to get good share price. But they will terminate you silently with out any severance. You should have more time, money and other resources to go to a law suit.
    Please do not join if you have experience of 5+ years. and be ready for all those things said above.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please investigate the thoroughly when some one sent to special program. It may be due to racism discrimination and do justice to the particular employee.

    Pros

    The pay is decent for a recent graduate. The people are really nice and really want you to learn. There seems to be a lot of opportunity for growth within the company. Having the opportunity to travel is nice.

    Cons

    The benefits are great, but expensive. Depending on the projects that you land on, you could work LONG days. The pay could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your new hires more and there won't be such a high voluntary leave rate.
