Pros

Work/life balance, telework flexibility, and health benefits.

Cons

Fairness and respect is not prevelent (old boys network mentality). Company is not a risk taker, very conservative so it is not that exciting to work here, therefore career opportunities are not that exciting. Senior leadership demonstrates that the bottom line is the driving force behind our policies & benefits, not the people (employees).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of your people and they will take care of you.

    SRA needs to communicate with employees

    Pros

    My four experience has shown that for those personnel working on a government site the relationship with the customer becomes as strong as the people assigned to the project. SRA does very little to communicate with those on a government site. However, due to a very comfortable relationship with the customer and virtually no interference from SRA, a pleasant working environment has been created. This has quite a down side as well but the atmosphere in the government site is very friendly and the only reason to stay with SRA. Not sure there are many other reasons to stick around.

    Cons

    Communication is very poor. Emails go unanswered and questions regarding how salaries are determined are ignored. These important issues seem to be ignored by upper management with the apparent intent that the "disgruntled" employee will just go away. There is also an appearance that if you do not work in the corporate offices you will not be selected for promotion or recognized at all. There must be an advocate in the corporate site for those of us onsite so the right people know we are here and that does not seem to exist. There is no effort at all to find qualified personnel to back fill on an onsite contract so the current personnel may be promoted and the contract is maintained. There is absolutely no desire to expand this type of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees need to be at least be acknowledged.

    Pros

    SRA has a track record of caring about it's people. There are systems in place to support employees across a variety of personal and professional circumstances.

    SRA performs a lot of interesting work with opportunities to learn and develop technical skills

    SRA treats it customers with respect and treats it's business partners fairly

    Cons

    SRA is not managing it's own growth and organizational change very effectively. There seems to be number of disconnects between executive leadership and middle management layers. There is a lot of infighting between business units and between longtime employees and the new leadership - hence the loss of a lot of really talented people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior leadership needs to study current literature in organization change management and put some of these ideas in practice. The current approach might have been in vogue in the 1960's but is not appropriate for a 21st century firm that aspires to be one of the best in the business.
