    Pros

    - Great flex-time hours available/managers willing to work around family events and appointments.
    - Even with a cap on comp time, at least there IS comp leave given and can be accrued to 200+ hours.
    - There is a 401k that contributes to employees who would otherwise be unable to contribute themselves; however, this has lowered the benefit from employees that contribute on their own. (Pro/Con)
    - The environment of people interacted with daily are, above and beyond, a better group of people than I've worked for/with previously.
    - As of the moment, we have not been informed of any move to the Affordable Care Act. Our current insurance isn't as bad as it could be (under the ACA especially), but it could improve. I'm satisfied for the price paid.

    Cons

    - Upper management should be far more proactive in getting involved with their employees. There is a constant flux and absurd referral bonuses because the company has a difficult time retaining those currently employed.
    - Very little communication between engineers and leads. There are far too many engineers that don't agree with one another and often contradict another's work. As a designer, the squabbles that follow (while somewhat humorous) are inefficient and don't get much accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the political agenda. You won't have a company if you don't have employees. One of the reasons the founder of SAIC was successful is because the company was employee-owned. Shareholders, while being an important part of any institution, often don't understand what it takes (or have unreasonable expectations set) for daily or quarterly success. Their interest in the company is superficial, which makes the boot-licking leadership appear the same way when they undermine the needs of the overall system that makes the company functional.
