I worked at SRA International full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

SRA was a leader with a recognizable name in the federal government systems integrator space. It still has the name recognition so current employees can use that in pursuing their next opportunity.

Cons

The company's acquisition by a venture capital firm (Provident Equity Partners) has compelled executive leadership to compromise the honest and integrity that once made the company great. The company's leave plan has been reduced significantly. Leave have been taken away from the more tenured employees. Severance plan was reduced significantly. Internal Mobility is ineffective. There has been a 3 year drought in winning large proposals and a trend in losing major contracts re-competes. There is an urgency to meet investors revenue goals that has placed pressure on employees at the project level as everyone is being asked to do more with less. This environment is a pressure cooker with little employee engagement or incentive beyond a paycheck.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management has communicated the state of the company and its vision however on the ground at the project level the message is we've reduced or have taken away benefits, but it's this way with our competitors too so work hard and be glad in this economy you still have a job. There has to be a better message to get the buy in from employees to perform at a higher level.

    Cons

    -Actual work environment reflects the client site's ethic for those on contracts
    - Client and bottom line trump employee wants or concerns
    - Off-Site Vendor training is nearly impossible to get if client is not willing to foot the bill and hours

    -Pay for your employees to train on the latest and greatest regardless of whether you can bill the client for the lost time or not!
