    I worked at Octagon Research Solutions

    Pros

    Learned some new skills.
    Co-workers were receptive and tried their best.

    Cons

    No support whatsoever from management. People would ask for help or they had issues management would literally say they have a meeting in five minutes and then run off! Happened NUMEROUS times. Could never get anyone to advise on anything. What were they managing I wonder??? Basically left people completely in the dark about new projects. Then when there were mistakes or unexpected issues, it was all our fault. People would get YELLED at from management in front of other co-workers. Highly unprofessional!
    I have worked at different organizations for almost 20 years and I can tell you this is THE WORST JOB I HAVE EVER HAD.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to wipe out existing management and hire all new. Should be required that management take or have taken in the past management courses on how to work with people and not act like babies.

    Pros

    When you want to learn something.
    And if you are a workaholic you will like the job.

    Cons

    Managers will never praise for doing a good job. They will always try to find something wrong. It is not a healthy environment to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act like professionals.
