Pros

Job with a mission - government oriented Good employee support although communication could be better

Cons

Military mindset throughout company - could stand to be more business oriented No clear career path. Promotions are there but you have to find your own way

Advice to Management

Work more as a commercial business and less as a military subsidiary. Focus on revenue, profits and customer satisfaction.

    Pros

    Ability to migrate between business units within the company quality workforce education reimbursement stable, fortune 200, recession proof

    Cons

    corp management in chainsaw mode, ensuring that their bonuses are large irregardless of consequences most talented employees (those with the most options) are leaving or have left the ship choked with middle managment good old boy's club keeps detrimental middle managers on board, despite obvious faults went from being one of the best IT companies to work for (many polls) to not on any positive polls The only way to get a decent pay increase is to leave (and maybe come back)

    Advice to Management

    Get back to core values (from employee owned days) stop worrying about positioning the company for sale stop acquiring companies without sufficient operation and merger plans stop shielding worthless managers just because they are ex-military/friends wake up and realize your #1, single most important resource is your employees REWARD YOUR EMPLOYEES WITH FINANCIAL COMPENSATION (not just bonuses for the top 2%ers)
