Pros

1 Technical environment
2. Opportunities for entry level staff
3. Good hard working people working with you as your peers.

Cons

The 95k question. As mentioned by other reviewers, ECS is a profitable company. But don't come here expecting salary increases, bonuses or incentives. Check the salary page for below average industry pay.

Public records linked off this site show the uglier side, where corporate evidently takes care of their own, keeping a terminated executive for 2 months, to pay out a massive annual bonus? Yet staff are told there is no money and no raises. Know what you are getting into.

Caveat Emptor.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The culture starts from the top. Isolated fiefdoms allow unethical behavior. You either knowingly stay blind to it or support it. Either way it infects your business and costs you in the long run.

Pay more attention if you really want to compete with Lockheed, SAIC and the other major industry firms.

    I have been working at Electronic Consulting Services full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    1. The firm is doing well financially.
    2. Competent staff.
    3. Very responsive administrative support.

    Cons

    1. The salary increases are a joke. I am part of a team that just won a 5-year contract (re-compete). The average salary increases ranged between 0 - 1.5%.
    2. Limited communication across the board (especially from executive management).
    3. Executive and senior management are not proactive. They prefer to react after the house has burned down.
    4. There does not appear to be a firm culture. The culture is contract dependent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. If you want to retain good people, pay them what they are worth. After all, you have the money.
    2. Make more of an effort to communicate with staff (especially those at client sites).

    Pros

    Compensation is not below average. The company appears to be doing fairly well so those still there seem not to face an immediate threat to lose job.

    Cons

    Very minimal communnications from upper management. Appears to concentrate on staffing to position not concerned about building compenentcies focused on bottom line growth is through acquisition not strategic growth.
