Solutions Architect

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Vienna, VA

Pros- Prior to current exec mgmt, great environment to grow professionally, employees were respected and well paid, sound execution and solid products. In some ways, we were ahead of the curve with Mashups and trying to go cloud.

ConsExec mgmt changes the company direction and vision annually without successful execution. People are no longer valued as we once were. Raises have been non-existent for over 4 years. Going private was a terrible mistake as it handcuffed innovation.

Advice to Senior ManagementValue your people. They are your greatest asset.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
