Cons

- Company does not provide any parking.
- You can not carry not more than 3 days of vacation to next year.
- Work Time M-F 9-6. That means you will not have any time for your self after work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Company should compensate some portion of the parking for their employees. This will definitely make employees happy. Vacation plan should be change. Employee should be allow to carry at least 5 days for their Vacation every year for two years.

    Pros

    Friendly teammates who love to help you grow and are always willing to help. Lots of opportunity to play with new toys and technologies with tasks constantly pushing you to learn new things. Casual workplace with remote work opportunities. Nice location with a easy commute to DC on the weekends.

    Cons

    The teams are disorganized. There are no regular meetings and since so many employees often work remote it's hard to stay on the same page as to what all teammates are doing. In addition the great number of remote employees introduces so many variables that troubleshooting technological issues is a nightmare. There's no true sense of being a part of a team since while officially you're supposed to come into the office at least part of every week, most employees, even those who live locally, opt to never come into the office unless they have to. Pay is lower than what it should be given the cost of living in this area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforce local employees coming into the office at least half of each week so that employee morale and collaboration is boosted. Doing so is likely to help boost productivity as well as reduce the chance that employees leave this company to work somewhere else with a more collaborative environment.

    Pros

    Telecommuting, commitment to excellence, start-up mentality coupled with stability, improved emphasis on training for employees, talented co-workers, knowing our systems are utilized by millions of users daily (!)

    Cons

    many inexperienced managers who are homegrown and still require training and support to succeed as individuals and team leaders, but who are committed to their role, can create growing pains.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on creating consistent processes across departments, modeling existing best practices.
