A place to grow if you're willing to put in work & act on opportunities to network.

Management Analyst (Current Employee) Fairfax, VA

ProsLarge system
Pays very well for local government
Robust internal training & education (work & non-work related)
Supports balanced work/personal life
Some Supervisors are outstanding & exceptional

ConsStandard promotional caps once in a merit position, no matter how skilled/proven you are (in other words NEGOTIATE YOUR SALARY on 1st full time offer...salary ranges are listed on the website)
A lot of dead log employees who complain & whine more than work & grow (as with any company)
Sometimes communication across departments & programs is not consistent
Some supervisors should not be allowed to supervise themselves!

Advice to Senior ManagementI know its tough as a government entity, but get more lean! Push out people who are non-productive or completely negative and get in more of the enthused passionate people that are sprinkled throughout the departments.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
