Pros

-Comprehensive benefit plans (although can very very expensive for a family)
-Nice perks like free tickets to sporting events, and travel awards

Cons

-Incompetent and unqualified senior management
-Low-balling employees on salaries and increases, while upper management received obnoxious pay and regular monthly and yearly bonuses NOT tied to performance
-Not focused on building business relationships.
-Negative employee culture - focus is on butts in seats and profits above employee treatment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire competent people that are actually qualified for the positions you select them for. Stop hand picking people and circumventing the hiring process that everyone else has to go through.

    Small firm, inexperienced and amateurish management

    Pros

    Like most small firms, they can provide a higher salary than the larger firms that have so many people on overhead (senior management, partners, etc.)

    Cons

    Rather than a real consulting firm, this place conforms to the model of a "body shop." Management has no real clue regarding the impact employees have on the client site; their only real interest is having bodies submitting timesheets that result in invoices. The most routine business/consulting problems seem to mystify and perplex the firm's management. For a firm that caters to the Federal and DoD market, it's ironic that their management functions at the level of a senior lieutenant or junior captain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some adults with actual business and consulting experience.

    Decent company, poor benefits and staff support.

    Pros

    Depending on where you work, you may not have any interaction with the corporate office at all. This is a positive and a negative. They do have a tendency to hand out bonuses if your boss reports you as having done a job well done. Also, they give out holiday bonuses.

    Cons

    Working with the HR department is a nightmare. For a company this small, they don't really know who works for them, or call you back when you leave messages. Also, they have a tendancy to withhold raises, even when the company's profit margins are increasing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know the employees.
