    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to work in numerous IT disciplines.

    Cons

    Extremely hard to advance since the turnover rate is very low. There are currently too many department heads and redundancy of work performed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more opportunity for advancement. Prefer the use of Federal Employees over contract employees. Remember to recognize outstanding work performed by employees in various ways.

    Remember where you came from.
