Pros

None. However, they have an excellent support staff (HR, Payroll, CS).

Cons

Very rude and inconsiderate executive management. Especially, the CEO is totally out of touch about the real work or the people. No hesitation to throw you under the bus without any notice. They care less about the employee, just their bottom lines. They treat managers like scapegoats to squeeze better profits. No matter what hours of the day, you have to be available (24x7). There is no real education benefits unless you burn your own time.

Advice to Management

Try to understand the deliverable on the SOWs and what it takes to make them happen. Be sensitive to people and their lives.

We are glad to hear that your experience with Phacil’s support staff was excellent. Your experience with our CEO does cause dismay, as it is also inconsistent with the preponderance of feedback we ... More

    Pros

    Enjoy working with our government customer. Nice facility. Some opportunity for advancement with the right certs.

    Cons

    Sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior by lower-management/leads goes unchecked. Several incidents where an employee clearly should have been let go were swept under the carpet.
    You are strongly discouraged from contacting HR in fear of reprisals including the loss of your job.
    There is absolutely no anonymity when you speak with management and/or HR about an issue.
    The condescending tone and tactics used by lower management is astounding. Manage by intimidation.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to offer as I believe they fully know how their contracts are managed; this type of management is generally top-down in nature.

    Pros

    Enjoyable work so far. Challenging but well compensated. Good support structure with corporate HR and reachback if you ever have a problem.

    Cons

    The usual life of a support contractor. Will they win the option or a re-compete is always a challenging time. But, we knew that when we signed up.... right?

    Advice to Management

    None right now
