On behalf of a quiet friend

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Rockville, MD

ProsUh? Good question I suppose. Decent hours? They'll keep you busy.

ConsI'm the roommate of a current employee who simply can't stand working there anymore. Every day he'll come home and rant about how miserable the day was. He's underpaid, overworked and under appreciated.

How do I know this for a fact? I used to work there myself. If you have the opportunity to work somewhere else, do it.

No real opportunity to further your position.
Compensation is on the very low end for the work asked of you.
Management is a boy's club (women included) and everyone else is trash. If you aren't in it, good luck.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees are not your slaves - stop treating them as such.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
