    Pros

    I was thoroughly impressed with the people that I worked with and always proud to be an employee. Corporate offices and management were always informative and there was a good corporate environment. They knew what they were doing and took care of employees well.

    Cons

    The only downside is was that I ever left. While I was there I felt like I was getting somewhere and at the forefront of the IT industry.

  2. Helpful (1)

    The work is enjoyable, the career development opportunities leaves some to be desired.

    Pros

    The type of work is very interesting for the most part. The 9/80 work week (work 9, 9 hour days every two weeks, every other Friday off) is a very nice perk. Benefits are also very good.

    Cons

    Everything is very process oriented (as with any DoD contractor).

    Your performance has little impact on raise percentages and career advancement.
    Employees are shifted into the higher levels based on seniority rather than performance.
    Even if your performance is well above average for your level, your review will be arbitrarily downgraded to push you into the average category to allow more senior, lower performers to progress their career.

    Advice to Management

    Your career progression techniques are designed to keep everyone happy, but it offends your best performers, which you should be working harder to retain.
