I worked at Schafer Corp.

Pros

Good pay, smart people. The environment is as good as one might expect.

Cons

My manager, while technically competent and motivated was sorely lacking in people skills. Moody as well.

Also, government agencies are some of the worst, most bureaucratic clients there are.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Well done in a tough industry.

    I have been working at Schafer Corp.

    Pros

    Salary was competitive. Enjoyed the contract I was working on. My teammates at the time were smart, hard working and fun.

    Cons

    Advancement can take some time. If you aren't a contractor making the company money, or part of the company core mission, jobs can fluctuate.

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
  2. Good first line employees, clueless management

    I worked at Schafer Corp. full-time

    Pros

    You don't have to interact with any of the clueless management or corporate people if you don't want to.

    Cons

    1. cutting benefits every year
    2. have to get $50 purchases approved at VP level for training materials
    3. clueless HR
    4. salary and benefits are average for a defense contractor
    5. all the good first line employees are jumping ship to other defense contractors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop cutting employee benefits and using the company money to fund your off-site meetings at resorts.

    Why does the CEO have 7 academic degrees? Sounds like a guy who can't make up his mind.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
