    Pros

    Management mindset that the first rule of being an "employer of choice" is to continue to be an employer. Doing everything they can to retain and win new jobs in a tough market. Love the values of the company (customer focus, differentiated, servant leadership, and earned trust) and believe the management really tries to lead using these values. Very good effort to communicate to employees with transparency. Leading consolidation in the industry through acquisitions.

    Cons

    Changing strategies and organization structure quickly (trying to be agile) but creates some disruption and change fatigue. Previously had lots of work in Iraq and Afghanistan and that creates challenges (business shrinking) as that work goes away. Very lean infrastructure means that there is little slack so high are expectations all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. It will pay off when the government starts awarding programs again. Keep making acquisitions and integrating them into the company so we can get new customers and expand our offerings. Adding technical discriminators to lowest cost provider positioning will help us win both LPTA and best value work in the future

    Pros

    Not run by people who have a good business background. Friends put friends in positions. Those in lower positions are better suited for upper management. They are having current employees interview for their jobs. Layoffs will be coming at the end of the month. Current CEO cutting the the bare bone. Employees are on edge.

    Cons

    Was L3 MPRI. At one point had the best reputation in the industry until greed and placing of the wrong people in key positions took over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house. The biggest waste of money is the business development department. They are paid the highest salaries and don't generate any business.
