Innovation is key

Software Engineer (Current Employee) Arlington, VA

ProsGreat opportunities to do different stuff, you just have to put yourself out there
Support from upper management about getting more involved in the company and persuing activities
Management is trying to be more "innovative" which is really (slowly) shaking things up (positively)
Internal programs to stimulate employees being empowered to take over their own careers

ConsIf your project ends, you are out of luck. You have to find your own new position and you are given the same priority as an external employee. (although I think this situation depends on the group)
HR center is worthless, you call for help and they just read back the literature. No deeper understanding of benefits.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep pursuing more modern ways of growing the company.
Find something to do when people have gaps in charge numbers because you can really be loosing great people due to funding issues on projects.
Employees really like getting involved in helping out

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
