I have been working at Chiron Technology Services

Pros

great pay, the best benefits I have ever received. 10% 401k match without putting a dime in and fully vested form day 1

Ability to move around and work on different government contracts. Typically dont' spend more than a few years on a contract.

Cons

The way the company works you are typically not working with fellow Chiron employees. But this is how a lot of small government contractors in that area work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you are doing and work hard at developing a niche product/service that can set you apart. Don't just follow the money putting bodies in positions like everyone else in that area.

  1.  

    I have been working at Chiron Technology Services full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    10% of your pay is automatically contributed to retirement. Depending upon where you work, you may be able to get free snacks and beverages. Regardless of where you work, you will be surrounded by good people.

    Cons

    Some positions require a lot of travel. These travel requirements can take you anywhere within the US, and usually last a week, but can go longer. I was also surprised to learn that you have to pay for external training out of pocket and request reimbursement afterward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the company continues to grow, re-evaluate your practices. Some of your long-standing practices worked well enough when the company was smaller, but are becoming problematic now (e.g. asking employees to pay for travel or training out of pocket and reimbursing them later). Then, once you get those practices straightened out, hire aggressively to lighten the travel load on current employees.

    I worked at Chiron Technology Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salaries, good benefits, claim to be "family oriented" if you fall for that kind of thing

    Cons

    No prime contracts, limited positions - they will ask you to do a job you don't want or know how to do and expect you to be grateful for the opportunity. Unfortunately, this stagnates/erases any career progression you may have. You will always be left behind when your contract runs out (and it will end because they have nothing long-term), scrambling for a new job that doesn't meet your skill set.

    They have also changed the vesting period for your 401(k) so you now have to be with the company for 3 years to get your money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sharing your personal successes (new house, new boat, etc.) with your employees while simultaneously telling them they don't get a Christmas bonus this year and that their health care costs are going up.
