Full of dedicated, hard working, and smart individuals (Geeks you'd want to have a beer with)

Project Associate (Current Employee) Arlington, VA

ProsThe system of matrix management and the internal labor market allow for very flexible and interesting opportunities, while helping to ensure that people try hard to work well together. If you're over worked, it's easy to "share your load" since everyone needs to take on work to get paid.

ConsThere is a dark side to the "internal labor market." it can be stressful ensuring that you always have just the right amount of project work on your plate.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou do a great job communicating where the company is and where it is likely to be next year. I'd like to hear more about what we need to position the company for even more success 5-10 years down the road. In other words, what do we need to do in order to get a huge pat on the back or a "wow" from the rest of the country for our 75th anniversary?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
