    Pros

    Metro is close by for easy commute. The office is surrounded at a great location and a few blocks away from the Verizon Center. The company is a great place to learn on the fly.

    Cons

    Management needs major work. I don't know how they are still in business and how they continue to sign on new clients. Well, I do know how they are able to get clients to sign up, we offer and provide everything the client wants to hear, but in reality, we don't really support such things. Upper management are blind and continue to make empty promises still to this day. I will be leaving the company in a few weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should focus on what works for them, which is not be in IT.

    Pros

    Opportunity for growth and promotion;
    Opportunity to learn new technologies;
    Fast paced and exciting environment;
    Close to metro;
    In the heart of the DC area;
    Nice shared office.

    Cons

    Difficult to keep up with the demands of clients;
    Unable to support with the staff that we have; many are not knowledgeable in the the area of IT, even though they work here.
    Management can be open but very closed minded.
    Getting training is difficult even when they want to push us to get certifications.
    No benefits.
    Shortel provider but support of them is difficult because no one is advance in that technology.
    We have monitoring tools that are no broken.
    Need to upgrade on new technology internally before trying to assist clients first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really try to change the place. Your turn overrate is TOO high. Nothing against using craiglist to find workers, but why not try to use a recruiter to higher knowledgeable workers to run the company. Try to blame yourselves a bit and lose the ego.

    Pros

    good work environment. positive environment. fast paced environment where you get a great deal of technical experience. paid for my training.

    Cons

    at times clients can be very demanding but the working environment makes up for it. there really was not any downside that bothered me that much

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep being open. I also would like for the management to keep giving more and more responsibilities to the staff. I personally enjoyed be assigned different work at times

    I worked at FedSolutions

    Pros

    Metro accessible
    Great office location.
    Walking distance to anything needed.
    Great office view on the 8th floor.
    Very small group to work with.

    Cons

    Wanted to put my 2 cents from all the reviews I've seen on a former employer,
    I worked there for a short period of time before I moved on to better things. The issues were the following:
    Sales Director/CEO/VP love to micromanage.
    Making cold calls to clients is horrible.
    Upper management (Sales Director/CEO/VP) love to take credit of all the hard work other people do.
    They consistently yell at their own employees as if we're children.
    Very unprofessional; they put on a good face for clients, but after the door closes, they have no respect for them to make sure the clients are taken care of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure what advice can be given, I left there after a few months for good reason that there was no future there at Fedsolutions. It could be different now, but they absolutely are unprofessional at what they do and interaction with their own employees.
