Pros

In business for 27 years, offers training, great teams to work with and good location. Challenging work and interesting customers.

Cons

Leaner operations in current market but this is also true at many other government contractors now. Business is all for federal government.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep listening to our ideas and being open with us. Continue to offer training programs. Vest us sooner in 401k program.

    Pros

    Colleagues are great to work with but we all agree this place is not great.

    Cons

    Salaries low for industry average on all jobs; they are cheap where they should not be.

    My management sucks; they all worked together in previous role and it's very obvious there is a click - people that need to retire and have no people skills

    No work/life balance. They say they value that in the interview but once you start that goes out the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people what they are worth by industry standards not by what you think they should be making.

    If you invest good money in your employees they will be devoted, motivated, and will exceed expectations.

    Listen more than you speak. Talk nicely and don't talk down to anyone.

    Value what your employees say and support their growth.

    Get all the family members out of the business; you are running the business like a soap opera and it is not professional at all.

    Pros

    Employees are the best part, not senior management but the employees.

    Cons

    Owners and senior management do not value employees. They also do no trust their employees. They do not focus on the correct improvement areas. There are unqualified people in senior management. They are too reactive and do not plan as a successful company should. They passively aggressively force the good people out and leave inept people in charge. They do not listen to the advice of professionals. Benefits are not good, pay is not good either. They even chase opportunities under superstition and not business facts. They replace former low paid employees with very expensive subject matter experts who just use up air. The board is full of overpaid advisors who cannot and will not be forward thinkers and who do not look at facts. No upward movement, they reward failure and for those who succeed they hold down. There is no upward mobility for smart and hard workers...just those who keep their noses up undesirable places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company. Give up trying to be a large business since you are stuck in how business was done 20 years ago. If you want to grow (and not keep losing contracts), listen to the professionals you hire.
