Former Employee - Budget Analyst  in  Frederick, MD
Former Employee - Budget Analyst in Frederick, MD

I worked at GoldBelt Raven full-time for less than a year

Pros

It was a job when the previous assignment ran out. Salary and benefits were good. If you go in with your eyes open that a position with them is to expand your resume and be aware that their positions are NOT for people looking for a career then this is the place for you. Don't expect any more than that.

Cons

Leadership not very honest about opportunities for growth and development. A lot of down time the first few weeks while your security credentials are 're-verified'.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The management is doing their job - responding to the needs of the client. Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at GoldBelt Raven full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good for former military with no prior IT experience. Good for aquiring secuirty clearance. Good for vegetables. Can be good pay, depending entirely on when you are hired. Good environment for networking for the next job.

    Cons

    Inconsistant direction. Little opportunity for advancement. Advancement reduces job security. Frustrating work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop your personal agendas. Pick a policy and stick with it for more than a month. Your employees are people, like your wives and children, not machines.

    Current Employee - ESD Tier I Agent in San Antonio, TX

    I have been working at GoldBelt Raven full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    *Dont take work home
    *You will have an active Secret Clearance
    *Busy so day goes by quickly
    *Very Micromanaged*

    Cons

    This position will get very redundant, this is a great stepping stone but I wouldn't recommend staying here to long because you will loose your true troubleshooting skills because the way they are designed. The job isnt true IT troubleshooting. Everything is refer to a knowledge base for an issue, and I would say that 90% of issues are things that happen regularly and there will be directions out there to step you through everything. The job is pretty easy 7-4pm, 1 hour lunch, and 2 15 min breaks. They use call metrics, and monitor your calls and give you random evaluations.
    You cannot take any days off for you first 90 days so if you have children be cautious of that, also they only want you to take at most 4 vacation days a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make leadership, Leads and Assistant Leads do more work, and stop walking around micro managing. Perhaps top performers get some kind of encintive.
