Pros

Good salary, very flexible hours.

Cons

Working at the Towers is the best way to advance. Away from the Towers you aren't visible for advancement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advance younger people more willing to work hard than older employees who advance just there because of their past military/government success.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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)

    Pros

    Management is hands-off and allows for self-direction
    5 weeks vacation!
    Incentives for completing certifications and degrees
    Wide variety of projects and tasks

    Cons

    Very uneven performance reviews showing obvious favoritism
    Lots of deadwood middle management and program managers
    Revolving door between company and government employees
    Large numbers of former military commanders trying to run the place like a military command
    Very little opportunity for women to lead or move up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We used to own the place - show us some respect
    The whole world does not revolve around Washington D.C.
    Time to begin diversifying; get all of our eggs out of the DoD basket
