An organization with too much churn.

Computer Security (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsHuge budget, invests in employee training and certifications. Good place to work for project managers. Many different locations and types of work available.

ConsToo many contractors, not enough feds. Programs never given full opportunity to be completed as they are often changed or cancelled upon appointment of a new secretary.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange the ratio of federal employees to contractors. Allow projects to be implemented and completed before you pull the plug. implement strong central control over the laboratories.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
