Pros

Pay, benefits, flexible work hours. Interesting and challenging work. Decent tools. The pension plan is one of the few I'm aware of within the industry. 401k offers matching up to 3 or 4%. They are now offering a health plan named Lumenos by Blue Cross Blue Shield which my family has really liked. Its the best health care plan I have had in many years. Company is making an effort to standardize across all organizations.

Cons

Company is very segmented making the work environment inconsistent between organizations and programs. People can be parochial resisting looking outside of their immediate work groups. This makes moving between organizations more difficult.

Advice to Management

You are slipping into a bodyshop mentality. You say how important retention is but the people who execute the business (line management) are not incentivised to pick up people from projects that are ending. For example, I see people let go because of contracts ending yet other organizations hiring from the outside at the same time.

    Nice place to learn things/start career. Not sure about long term though.

    Pros

    Best reason to work for NG is the variety of projects that the company is involved. If you are able to get involved in them you can learn a great deal. Working on a small team is probably a good deal as you can wear many hats.

    Cons

    The nature of the work is mostly government related so you have to deal with a very very slow moving environment which can be annoying to anyone who wants to work in a fast paced environment. The company also has huge layers of bureaucracy. Seems like many employees are treated as replaceable parts. Compensation is just average. Like any government contractor they will pay you as low as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the layers of bureaucracy.


  2. NG is a strong, fair, if not always inspiring, workplace

    Pros

    Benefits are better than norm, personal training is strong and extensive, job diversity

    Cons

    Large organization with an emphasis on federal government.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the 'little folks' who are doing the 'grunt' work.
