I have been working at TASC full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

There are a wide variety of very interesting assignments, with potential for travel if that's what you want. TASC will pay for degree- or certificate-related coursework. TASC complies with all laws regarding EEOC, overetime, etc., and generally has sane management.

Cons

TASC has reorganized 5 times since I started work in2002, which means a lot of turbulence in the chain of command. Benefits have been shrinking steadily since I joined TASC in 2002, due largely to the competitive landscape in a shrinking Federal budget. TASC will not pay for upgrade training that does not lead to a certificate or degree. The maximum total of vacation and sick leave is 4 weeks no matter what your years with the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try not to reorganize for 5 years. Find some way to allow more senior employees to less than full time. Find some way to allow more than 4 weeks combined vacation and sick leave.

    I worked at TASC as a contractor

    Pros

    If you're a self-driven individual, who doesn't need someone breathing down your neck, and can complete assignments without guidance, you will do well. The position is flexible enough to allow you to finish your job in the best way possible, with efficiency and pride. There are limitations and guidance documents that will prevent you from going too far outside of your job, or inadvertently violating a regulation or labor law, for both your protection and theirs.

    Cons

    If you are a lazy slacker that can show up to work, each donuts or breakfast tacos all day while surfing the internet or watching TV, and not feel guilty that you're getting paid to do absolutely nothing productive, then this place is perfect for you. No one check up on you, and if you can make up some excuse as to why you busted a timeline, no one cares. Heck.... take a 4 hour lunch and your boss probably won't notice! Just as long as they see you before 9am, and you're still there around 3pm, you can effectively skate through and know that it doesn't matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make people more accountable. Have the balls to fire people that aren't pulling their portion of the workload.
