I have been working at SRA International full-time (More than a year)

Pros

40-hour work week depending where you work within the company, other sectors/clients require longer hours (beware of of the growth group) but in general the firm encourages a fair work-life balance. People are smart, friendly, and the corporate culture is very relaxed and executives seem genuinely concerned with how the average worker perceives policy initiatives. Plenty of training opportunities and decent tuition reimbursement program.

Cons

Unclear promotion path, poor to mediocre pay increases, small or nonexistent bonuses.

Advice to Management

Encourage high performers to stay with the firm by rewarding their hard work with benefits such as comp time, bonuses, or special training opportunities.

    Pros

    Invests in human capital, encourages innovation and creativity, rigorous, work/life balance is valued.

    I have been working at SRA International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good, salary is competitive, work can be interesting, and there are plenty of nice people. Very comfortable work-life balance.

    Cons

    SRA is not a place for someone young and hungry. It is a perfect place for someone who works to live. Not a lot of opportunities for advancement, or broadening your skill set.

    Advice to Management

    Either introduce comp time, or improve bonus/salary system to encourage employees to work more than 40 hours a week. It would improve profits (fixed costs like buildings and benefits would be spread over more hourly revenue) and encourage employees to work 50-60 hours a week if they choose. And if the contracts aren't rolling in, people can cut back to 40 hours a week while avoiding expensive layoffs.
