    Pros

    Good group of folks to work for.

    Cons

    Not with the company but being a contractor to the government is difficult if the client treats them like second class citizens.

    Pros

    The team is very supportive and hard-working. Everyone pitches in to help each other to make our deadlines and submit winning compliant proposals to USAID and we have fun & respect each other while doing so!

    Cons

    Many of us wish we were still located in the Washington DC office. We make the most of Braddock Road though and have cozied up to the space. It's a nice building which helps. A lot of us still bike to work and there is a bike rack in the garage. Free gym in the building is also great to take advantage of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership training was fantastic I hope that it is continuing! Also grateful that we brought the 401K back!!

    Government contractors are not for everybody

    I have been working at Engility

    Pros

    The best part about job is working from home and the company issued company is new and efficient. I've been able to maintain a work-life balance.

    Cons

    Government contracting is not for everyone. This the first government contractor I have worked for and I'm seriously re-thinking my decision to continue in this industry. The government clients pay the bills and they have to be handled delicately. I've already seen the clients not do their jobs and contractor employees take the fall. Program managers believe anything the client says in fear of losing the client. As an employee, you have no defense and just hope no one complains about you. I also have a problem with people's attitudes. I have encountered several people on this contract that are just rude. They are demanding and say pretty much whatever they want to you. My program manager made me my cry. It's not for people without thick skins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't believe everything you hear from the clients and treat your employees with more respect.

    Pros

    Interesting work is possible when assigned to you, or requested. Opportunities to branch out and help on different sections of contract and assist other work groups.

    Cons

    Revolving door, when something goes wrong the most expendable get the ax. The management layer is buffered and will not admit to errors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making harsh irrational judgement, admit when you make a mistake, you all make them.

    Pros

    Very little overhead so company is competitive for contracts

    Cons

    Low overhead = minimal benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Over centralization: keeps costs low but responsiveness and ability to respond quickly is adversely impacted.

    Pros

    Some really great guys there - - especially the former MPRI team, plus some of the Operations Managers and PMs

    Cons

    CEO is completely clueless and immoral. Ethics is a joke. Corporate BD "leadership" is a joke....shallow people with no vision...and no character.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the Executive BD staff....promote best Director-level guys to take over.
