Used to be a wonderfully employee-focused company, less so now

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Washington, DC

ProsMany opportunities for training - online (SkillPort), WebEx, SRA University, Books 24x7. SRA's Capabilities Centers and Communities of Practice give opportunities to learn about new technologies and network with people in far-flung parts of the company.
SRA is serious about doing *useful* performance appraisals to really help the employee improve and grow, not just to check a box to say it's done.
No one can say the company is in a rut when it comes to trying new approaches to strengthen the business and the leadership.
SRA dealt with the effects of the Oct. 2013 government shutdown much better than many competitor companies.
The people I work with are smart, collaborative, hard-working, and focused on doing what's best for our customer. I'm proud and happy to work with them.

ConsSenior management's decisions over the past 18-24 months to reduce benefits, reorganize the company, and lay off people in certain areas, all in the name of making the company more competitive, have hurt morale and caused some excellent people to leave the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen Bill Ballhaus first joined SRA as CEO, I was very impressed with his willingness to answer questions during his quarterly "town hall" employee meetings, and his commitment to being transparent about senior management's decisions and directions for the company. But the latest round of upper management layoffs in December 2013 was done with no context and no explanation beyond "consolidation," and many people are very upset about it.

Bring back the transparency.
Explicitly connect the dots for the rest of us, to demonstrate how your decisions to make SRA more competitive and to invest in people dedicated to growth/business development have benefited the company through new and re-competed contracts.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
