    Pros

    Most of employees I know and have been working with them until DSFG took over the contract. This is one of the biggest contract they won 290 mil. The place is located next to White Flint, MD, and dub as one of the "Best Federal Agency to work for".. NRC nice drive Come in for the clearance, work for 2 months and start looking

    Cons

    PURE PROFIT DRIVEN. Communication is horrible, the company management, internal management do not respond to employees. You can call them, send an e-mail, no response. At the work site, If you need to speak with management there is a chain that has to be followed, if you break it you are frowned upon. Management does not respond to repeated e-mail seeking help, on projects. The current management in place is not up to the task, and are very unaware of the environment, and culture of the users. Our immediate management have NO technical skills and yet they are managing a team of technicians and engineers. We do not have enough staff causing failure SLA. This is a sinking ship. If you come as a "only allowed partner" the jobs are only reserved for certain companies, you can not convert over to the main company. Also the partner pay much much less, and life is also bad with them. You get your normal benefits... BTW the stock sucks. vacation 80 use it or loose it sick leave 80 use it or loose it. Not a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Open your mind, and speak to the employees without making threats. If you want to this contract to continue, you NEED to address internal problems NOW! because your entire team is looking, and they ARE LEAVING!... not going, not maybe, not will..BUT ARE LEAVING

    Pros

    I've only been here a couple years, but overall things have been good. I've been happy with my salary, location, and colleagues

    Cons

    The IT industry is going through a rough patch right now, there are constant organizational changes, and only very senior people can become people managers
