Pros

They treat their employees with respect. A lot of your peers are good technical people. It has many locations located all over the states for you to relocate if needed.

Cons

You basically work from contract to contract. When the contract ends, it's up to you to find your own job. There's little assistance from HR for job placement even though you are an excellent performer.

    Pros

    Big company with a decent reputation, good location, fair compensation

    Cons

    Older culture (age of peers) where I didn't fit in, older culture limited my career progression

    Advice to Management

    Realize leadership potential from all levels of the organization. Don't limit to just hiring managers coming out of military retirement. Also, there's a lot of benefit to hiring younger blood in the company.

    Pros

    Many of the programs are high-tech, defense related, and can be pretty interesting. There are lots of smart people to interact with and learn from.

    Cons

    Overhead is a 4-letter word, so training/retraining, conferences and the like are minimal. If you're on a direct contract, you're OK until it ends; then you're pretty much on your own to find other work. Hire and layoff are the standard staffing procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff as something other than line-replaceable units. It is far cheaper to keep people that it is to layoff and then hire new.
