Pros

Pros: Generous compensation, annual pay raises (3.0-5.0%), bonuses (5% of salary), close knit workforce.

Cons

Cons: Typical drawbacks of very small firm, e.g., one person deep in almost all areas, limited geographic presence (D.C. area centric, with 1-6 persons in about four or five other areas), expectation to make additional contributions after completing 40-hour work week, e.g., add 3-8 additional hours to support HQ-related needs such as proposal support, reviewing resumes of potential hires, chipping in to firm with your area of expertise.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cydecor is a very good firm. To grow, must allow managers to make binding decisions in their work areas and for their people. Can't manage centrally from HQ as firm grows from, say, 35 to 350 peeps. Must address the revolving door/high turnover in the HQ 'back office' support.

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Crystal City, VA

    I worked at Cydecor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, generally good co-workers, Family events are very nice

    Cons

    Nader is a master at deception, get everything in writing, and be very careful about ethics violations. Nader throws embarassing temper tantrums, throwing things and yelling obscenities. He has questionable contracting and billing practices. His management style causes otherwise good people to mistrust each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no management. There's Nader and those who do EXACTLY what he tells them to do.
