Good company and good people.

Portfolio Manager (Current Employee)
McLean, VA

ProsPeople are very friendly and given the quasi-govt status, much laid back atmosphere.

ConsSome of the people weren't motivated and occasionally you see people who are very incompetent but still manage to move up the ranks through "friendship and relationship".

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease stop "talking" about changes and motivation but rather make the place really driven by skills and performance.

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