Pros

The company has grown so much in the past three years which means more movement opportunities. Benefits are in line with national averages, and they just upped paternity time off to 10 days, which is very good.

Cons

The company has grown so much in the past two years that they can not offer certain benefits like they used to. When I was hired all employees got an annual profit sharing of close to 3.5% of their salary put into their 401K and it was vested after just two years. Now the profit sharing is just a meager 1% and its vested over 5 years. The other draw back how the company promotes its employees. The company is a "favortism" type company where if you know the right people you can move up, if you do a great job, are qualified for promotion positions, you dont even get asked to interview cause there is no interviews.

Advice to Management

Put out all vacancies for all management positions as they would with other positions. Have a 360 degree review process for its management staff since many of their first and second line managers are not at HQ sites.

    I have been working at Sotera Defense Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small company mentality decreases the amount of levels to go through in performing your job successfully. Genuine engagement to include Company events. Benefits are comparable to most other contractors, but can always be improved. The division has a good solid dedicated group of people and great executive team. The PMs do a good job going out to the sites to meet with people at every opportunity they have.

    Cons

    Would like to see improvements in the benefits, specifically PTO and 401k. Could use a little more bandwidth in management arena. Although the managers do a good job at going out to visit their people, other commitments often deter them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication flowing down consistently and truthfully. Keep working on improving the benefits and moral for employees. Implement and Maintain and keep processes current.

    Cons

    The opportunities available for all employees seems to be limited to government contract jobs as opposed to jobs in the commercial world.

    Advice to Management

    Implement an incentive based bonus system to all levels of employment, not limited to upper levels of management.
