Good rewards and recognition program for self starters.
Solid leadership development program just starting to catch on - and it will make a difference sooner rather than later.

Cons

Like most other defense contractors they are scrambling a bit to stay relevant with their customers.

    Pros

    Employees are encouraged to learn both in order to achieve company goals by employing strong Teamwork amongst employees in all Departments. Management and subordinates are encouraged to speak openly and freely within their Department and point out possible methods of improving the Department's work in a timely and efficient manner. All questions pertaining to the individuals tasks are welcomed and treated seriously and with respect. This has created a Bond and Level of Trust within the company amongst the Employees and Senior Management that in my experience is rarely seen at most Companies. Hard work is rewarded not only with Salary increases but Growth opportunities that every Employee is encouraged to strive for.

    Cons

    Untimely Changes/Addendums to existing contracts that negatively effect the previously established End Date of particular projects and Work Packages with sometimes costly penalities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assign/Create Company Liasons to work and monitor closely specific parts of existing Contracts with both the In-House Federal Group and specific Departments assigned to complete their portion of existing Contracts in a timely and efficient manner thus ensuring zero Cost Overruns and meeting Due Dates for completion of work.
