Pros

The relationships you build. In the DC (very different than HQ in NJ) office, there is a great environment. Laid back, and everyone (including senior management) is accessible. First name basis with executives. The company does good work. You get a chance to travel too depending on your job function. There are some great managers, and some great groups.

Cons

Hard to grow within the company. Low pay. Company grew WAY too fast, and they are busy putting the policies and procedures in place that were overlooked.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managers. Keep the good ones, get rid of the bad ones...

    Pros

    The people are great, highly educated and hard working.

    Cons

    Compensation; base and total package if there is one beyond base pay, is under market and the fringe benefits are downright dangerous if you're needing medical/dental coverage and other insurance. The 401-K is the worst I've ever seen, so don't count on retirement planning here. Raises are not always given and very few. if any, bonuses. HR really isn't.
    There are numerous Government compliance issues and no strategic planning, so I wouldn't plan on being around for a long time. It's privately held and no equity for most.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get proper leadership.

    Pros

    The work can be interesting depending on what practice you are in. The international focus of the company is refreshing. Very eclectic work force.

    Cons

    Very nepotistic company. Management is extremely slow to react and ambiguous. Trying to be a large company but still acts very 'small'...and not in a good way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better with employees. Less nepotism, more meritocracy. Mid level managers must delegate better. Much better benefits required to match competitors.
