  1. The company I believe was experiencing "growing pains" and was going through many changes during my employment.

    I worked at Force 3 full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They appeared to be very much about their employees in regards to training, motivation, special recognition, etc...

    Cons

    Due to the many changes it made working under leadership difficult. Had several different supervisors during my 3 year employment.

    Pros

    Fun Place to work, knowledgable co workers, decent benefits

    Cons

    management was horrible, especially in delivery. Salary was below par for the D.C. Metro Area. Company always seems to be a in a state of constant flux. Former CEO drove place into the ground

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    look into the services practice and make sure you really have the people you need to have working there, look into the management.

    I worked at Force 3

    Pros

    Good people, good work environment, teamwork is stressed, good CEO, good direction.

    Cons

    Certain individuals are allowed to do whatever they like, right or wrong, with no consequences. If you are protected you are golden, but you must do exactly as told. These individuals are spineless and will not hesitate to use you up and throw you away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    re-examine who has the power

    Pros

    Hands down, the people. From top to bottom this company clearly values their employees and contribution to the organization. The hiring process is well thought out and the culture is highly collaborative. I attribute a lot of this to Force 3's new CEO. His vision for the company and it's employees is second to none.

    Cons

    Other than the commute, I haven't seen any cons to this point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be inclusive with the organization. I really enjoy the transparency.

    Pros

    The people you will work with are amazing. Knowledge sharing is not only encouraged but is widely practiced. The attitude at work is awesome and potential for growth is there.

    Cons

    Lots of business means lots of hours if you are an engineer.

    I worked at Force 3 full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Standard Benefits; 401k, decent insurance package, occasional bonus and a paycheck about every 2 weeks

    Cons

    Not a place to start a career or maintain one, Management Horrible beyond all imagination and probably the biggest thing is people do not stay long here, so much turnover. Unstable work environment, watch out when the government doesnt pass a budget as you may be out of a job sooner than later. Leadership is running this place into the ground fast. Coming to this company was the biggest mistake of my professional career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you really need to replace your management. the CEO is horrible, seems like he's talking out of the other side of his mouth. The compensation is below market in the D.C. Metro Area. Less parties and special events, why not concentrate on your employee's well being, professional development and other important areas and the revenue will come. Forget the self aggrandizing Golf tournaments, Crab Feasts, etc and focus deep on your employees. You may actually keep some of them around that way.

    I have been working at Force 3 full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I'm floored at the negative feedback on this site. My experience has been very different. Pros: Leadership, development opportunities, flexibility and compensation. Company has shown over and over again that C-suite cares about success of team through development opportunities. Leadership has been put in difficult position of having to make tough decisions regarding direction and staffing due to economic factors and previous leadership decisions. They work hard to align the business to changing trends and are hiring individuals who can direct necessary change.

    Cons

    It's not always entirely clear what's next and organizational strategy has been a little schizophrenic, though things seem to be tempering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wouldn't let the feedback on this site discourage your efforts.

    I worked at Force 3 full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Some really smart people work here. I enjoyed the cookouts and morale type activities. They do put on some impressive events such as christmas parties and silly season (end of fiscal year)

    Cons

    The salaries are below par for the D.C. Metro Area, at least in the engineering departments. The Management constantly flip-flops and it appears they have little interest in the care and feeding of their employees. Good old boy network exists here. Poor advancement opportunity. Lack of training opportunities. Rapid turnover of employee's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I personally would not recommend this company to anyone by a long shot. The reviews about the CEO/C-Suite caring about people are laughable and sad at the same time. Improve Force 3 by removing the management and replacing them with those who actually care about employees.
