Pros

Great salary and benefits. Very interesting defense-type work. Good people, very professional. Hours are flexible and accommodating. Work-life balance is encouraged.

Cons

Because of cutbacks in govt funding, layoffs are common place. Workloads have increased substantially in the last 3 years.

Advice to Management

Recommend sharing the wealth from other parts of the company to support the R&D in the emerging areas where C4 has core expertise and years of experience. Focus more effort on winning new business.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to work with experts in the industry and a great customer/contractor relationship.

    Cons

    Recognition of success is hard to come by, promotions are entirely self-driven in that one must post to new, higher paying jobs since the impetus for promotion does not come from managers. Disturbing trend of trying to pressure employees to give more and more without any recognition or compensation adjustments.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that middle management is burning out the lower management types. There is a high internal turnover rate among the staff and it is not because the work is not interesting.
