I have been working at SRA International full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The company values work ethic, initiative, and responsibility. If you prove your value as a worker, in general, your boss will be willing to give you additional responsibilities - this is how you move up. The benefits here, such as Health, Vision, and Dental, are elective but much better than the alternative (ACA marketplace). In my experience I've never been asked to do more than the 40-hour workweek as a salaried employee, although voluntarily doing so reflects well on your work ethic.

Cons

The benefits have been cut to some degree recently, following the company's acquisition by a private equity firm. I also have a suspicion the company might be downsizing its non-salaried workforce. I wouldn't say the work I do is personally fulfilling, but it *is* a job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't cut vacation hours anymore - in fact, you might find that adding more days of leave helps us be "wickedly efficient" by reducing employee burnout. It makes me feel awful when I come into work burnt out, because I want to perform better.

    Pros

    Years ago SRA was a great place to work.

    Cons

    Typical big business mentality. Dissapointing waste of 10 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Winded all hands meetings are pointless. Employees know that they'll be left with more questions than answers.

    Pros

    The Wellness Incentives and pretty decent healthcare insurance. But still not enough to make up for how horrible the company has become.

    Cons

    All of the benefits keep getting cut: 401K, holidays, vacation, compensation, and parking. Telecommuters do not get all of the equipment they need. Clients are basically given the bait and switch once a proposal is won. Management is focusing so much on profit and GC that they don't see how unhappy the employees and clients are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cheap and ineffective does not make a good combination for the future of the company. Take the hint that we have not won 80% of the work we are bidding.
