I worked at Sotera Defense Solutions full-time for more than a year

Pros

Pay was competitive / good for our region, benefits were good, let me do my work and did not micromanage, great PTO benefit, management was good and responsive. Small enough to help you one on one.

Cons

HR department needs to talk to employees more - confused me on health benefit and I missed sign up period, had to resubmit my pay voucher 3 times before I got paid. Typical defense contractor - once contract up you are out of a job. In my field, analyst, there was no advancement - just a contract employee and when the contract is over, so are you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Doing good, but help employees when contract ends - that is why I left

    I have been working at Sotera Defense Solutions full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Supportive and fair. They treated their people well when they are on a contract and have good benefits for people working for Sotera Defense.

    Cons

    No real support when the contract is over. There is no severance for years of service. Did not have anywhere to grow and no contracts to go on.

    Buying up Staffing Companies and then getting away from that business is in a word, STUPID

    Former Employee - Senior Systems Engineer in McLean, VA

    I worked at Sotera Defense Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They pay on time, if you love internecine internal office politics this is the place for you, lots of old guys in suits

    Cons

    No Beach, Massive Layoffs, No rhyme or reason behind layoffs, cutting meat not fat, will never be able to get back the employees they laid off unnecessarily, Misguided push to Prime everything turns off existing partners

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to be a partner instead of just an adversary. Your push to prime where you were subs now means you are just like everyone else, disposable and subject to the fickle whims of government COTRs
