Pros

Decent work/life balance, decent benefits, good people and changing (for the better) upper management

Cons

Does not do a good job matching skills to projects, not a lot of flexibility for consultants, many people being axed currently (despite longevity at company)

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing to make this company competitive. Lower level management can be basically clueless

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Long term projects/customers;Flexibility to work from home;

    Cons

    Very bad benefits;Salaries far below market standards;No employee rewards or recognition; New CEO promised to save 1 billion in FY2012 causing major attrition due to hostile employee policies.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are your greatest strengths. Not paying employees appropriately and disregarding employees for short term gains to make shareholders happy will eventually lead to the loss of customers/clients.

  2. Frustration with the Disconnect between Government and company's Regional, Headquarters Management and HR Department.

    Pros

    The team worked well together and did everything they could with what they had to give the government what they wanted.
    The security dept. was spot on in doing their job and even went above and beyond in helping employees keep their security clearance.

    Cons

    There seems to be too much of a communications disconnect between HQ and the local Manager, which left the supervisor in the dark and contractors not knowing what to do.
    The HR dept. is disorganized and not able to handle employee paperwork in a timely fashion. The employee ends up finding out how to do their job and then informs HR what they need to do.

    Advice to Management

    It would be an improvement to communicate better between upper Management down to local managers on what you expect of them and be detailed on the objectives you have planned. Also check to make sure all HR staff are trained and know the policies and procedures for handling employees issues. For example, in-processing new and past employees, college reimbursement.
