I have been working at Noblis full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I have been working at Noblis for many years. The transition from a directed award contract business to a competitive bidding company has been extraordinary. The senior management team has had to make some tough choices, but it was either make some major changes to the company or go out of business and unemploy 700 employees.

Cons

The government contracting environment remains very tough and Noblis will continue to have to adapt as it goes forward.

Advice to Management

You are doing the right things....stay the course!

    I worked at Noblis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The ability to work with top notch, intelligent professionals and be part of innovative research and projects contributing to improvement of the human condition in a variety of areas, from government, technology, the environment, and development of renewable, green energy resources, to health care and other mission areas

    Cons

    It's a non-profit, with overhead restrictions, but management is conscientious in delivering value and organizational efficiencies. As with all companies involved in government contracting, maintaining government accounts is tough in these uncertain times

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage the professionalism and intellectual contributions for which Noblis is known. Continue to value the contributions of senior staff while mentoring younger staff.

    Pros

    Great facility with some really smart people...If you are early in your career it is a great place to have mentors. If you are later in your career, watch out

    Cons

    Never seen so much "politics". If you are one of "The Club" you don't have to worry about security and your future. If you just want to do your job and be excellent at it watch out as you need to work the system. Company needs to hold employees more accountable and responsible for their actions. Too many people not doing much but "riding" their big salaries and benefits. New business is basically nil. Too many BD people been there for years with no quantifiable results. Some "Shared Services" department are staffed way out of proportion to the size of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes! Get off the 8th floor and walk around and see what is really going on. Hold employees accountable for their jobs. Get some real BD people who can bring in business and not just collect a paycheck. Don't try to pull wool over employees eyes. You hire smart people...they can see right through shenanigans no matter how hard you try to "spin it"
