Pros

Great team members outside of management, benefits and 401K plan were good.

Cons

It was difficult to find managerial support regarding the challenges I faced in my position - positive feedback was almost non-existent. Environment was chaotic and challenging, and I was given little to no direction. It felt like I was being spied on by the customer, and criticism became personal instead of professional.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on the positive things your employees do - listen to what they have to say if they are having challenges. Be supportive.

    Pros

    Good leadership team - seem genuinely interested in making sure employees are happy.

    Cons

    The company is primarily in the DoD support contract business - an industry that's certain to decline for the foreseeable future due to budget pressure. Odyssey seems to be in some good niches, but virtually no company in this space will avoid impacts. Also, like every other government contractor, you are consignment labor. It's the nature of the industry that you are useful only as long as the current contract lasts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it a practice to check in on each employee periodically - otherwise, they have no real connection to the company.
