    I worked at Federal Data Systems full-time

    Pros

    Management expects you to do your job and was very hands off if you were perfoming satisfactorily for the customer.

    Cons

    Advancement was tough but that is to be expected at a small company to a certain extent.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Benefits are ok, salary is ok.

    Cons

    Minimal contact with the company after being hired, no kind of representation from management while onsite. They have no idea what is going on with their employees onsite. They will cut your salary and say it was the prime that cut your salary, when all along it's them who cut it by 20% or more for no real reason. They will remove you from a contact and promise they will find you something else with the company, don't believe the hype they wont and you will be on the street. They will do things to force you out instead of just flat out firing you, as if they don't want to pay you unemployment...stay away from this company!!!

    Advice to Management

    Stay in touch with your employees that are onsite, so they can feel they have some type of representation. Don't cut a persons salary once you have agreed with them on a certain salary that is in writing. No matter what you think they know or don't know...provide them with training so they can do their job when they ask.

    Pros

    They paid for parking. Expenses were paid promptly

    Cons

    Senior management was on contract for GD. Poor processes

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees. Take time to listen. If you schedule time for a meeting don't rush the person out the door.
