All employees have same benefits, generous annual bonus, stock options, and a large 401(k) match (100% match up to 6% of salary). Highly adaptable and flexible management. manamanagement,to keep c

Cons

It competes with larger companies so will need to constantly work harder and smarter to beat competition. Must continually adapt and get better in all areas to keep growing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep hiring outstanding talent as you grow. Good people and new ideas are constantly needed. The future is very bright.

    I have been working at Pragmatics

    Pros

    CMMI Level 4 company with strong work ethics and creative compensation plans. Attracts good leadership

    Cons

    Family run business, that is run like a family run business. Truly a "shop house" run operation with weak financial controls and arbitrary management framework. Very "cheap" when it comes to investment in growth or business development. Company pays for virtually nothing. Expense reports are combative. Very poor management communication. Company owners are "clock watchers" and value time in the office more than performance. Impatient for results in growth, likely to remain a small business and unlikely to make the leap to a full corporation competing in the bigger federal market. Current task order response business model cannot sustain growth objectives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put into place a real financial management system and professional to run the company.

    1. For the projects I did, Pragmatics has a good reputation with its existing clients.
    2. I liked the project work I did and I liked the people on my project team.
    3. I found senior management to be honest and ethical.
    4. Management seems to have a caring attitude towards employees.
    5. Pragmatics has nice social company outings that help foster unity and team morale.
    6. If you are a big fan of CMMI, Pragmatics has attained level 4 status.

    Cons

    1. I wish the company had a more diverse client base. For example, I wish they had some commercial clients.
    2. The office decor is kind of drab.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None at this time.
