    Pros

    The supervisory support was suberb! It was a good working environment at the local level.

    Cons

    Company lied about security of job when government program was cancelled! They kept telling us that our job was secure in the face of an impending government program cancellation, but when it occurred, we were laid off!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees when you're going to lose a contract!!! Don't keep telling us we're safe when you know better and don't give us advanced notice to start looking for another position.

    Pros

    You feel pride in working for a company that provides clients services that are unequaled in the industry.

    Cons

    The company is so large it takes time to respond.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offices and departments of the organization need to collectively coordinated more effectively. The cost of benefits and ESPP is expensive for such a large corporation.
