Great place to get started professionally, but those seeking to grow may eventually need to move on to greener pastures.

Pros

Very client-driven, so very client-dependent job. If your client is awesome, your job can also be awesome. Growing, improving company.

Cons

Don't expect a lot of corporate reach-back. Good if you like being of the client mind, but bad if you have ideas about how to improve services or grow your operating unit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus more on organic growth potential rather than always looking for the big contract wins.

    Pros

    Energetic atmosphere. They know how to interface successfully with government clients. I would take a position with them in the future if the right position opened up.

    Cons

    I found very few opportunities for career advancement. I was pigeon-holed as a tech kind of asset and that became the extent of my expected contribution

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder to cultivate expectations for growth from your employees... especially the younger ones. Encourage that growth even if it is beyond what that employee consistently does well.
