Turnover, turnover, turnover, with no consistent direction.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Saint Paul, MN

ProsSolid compensation, with good salary and benefits. Flexible schedule. Good company outings (summer family picnic, fall family orchard visit, nice winter/Christmas party). Relatively relaxed office setting, with drinks brought in for meetings or celebrations every few months or so. Upper management really tries to communicate with everyone where the company is at and where it's going.

ConsPeople don't stick around. I've never worked anywhere with a higher turnover rate. If a new employee made it a year, they usually stuck around, but many people either left or were fired within months of starting. Going through 4 bosses in 2 years at the same position resulted in inconsistent priorities and direction or complete lack of direction.

Additionally, the nature of government contracts led to some frustrating aspects, such as bonuses getting delayed while waiting for payment on a contract, though communication about things like this was good and it's nothing that other industries don't face in some capacity.

There weren't many people who seemed to have a really solid work-life balance. Emails between 8 PM and midnight (or 2 AM) were regular.

While the executive management really worked to communicate with everyone where the company was and the direction in which it was going, the direction changed often, likely due in part to numerous changes in personnel at all levels of the company, including the executive level.

Oh, and when a management meeting in a company of 100 people has 30 people in it, there might be a few too many managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhile the idea of not making a "10-year mistake" with a bad employee is great, the high turnover suggests either really poor hiring practices or schizophrenic priorities. Figure out a direction and stick with it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
