Good experience, but wrong atmosphere

Summer Analyst (Current Employee)
McLean, VA

ProsThe employees are very friendly, work life balance is solid, the work itself isn't overly stressful, nice exposure to management.

ConsObviously due to the recent shake ups in the industry and company the atmosphere is pretty strange. There are serious turn over problems, and the uncertainty of where the company will be in a couple years is constantly hanging over everyone.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe frank about the possibilities of what is in store for the company to quiet speculation and uncertainty.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
