    I have been working at Forward Slope full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Potentially interesting assignments, drowned out by poor and detached and disjonted management. The question is whether these issues are due to total incompetency or something else. The leadership knows how to spend the money on themselves. All that said, co-workers are really bright, really good at their jobs. It is sad to see the morale collapsing.

    Cons

    Constant blame of regular employees for lack of new business. "Old Boy's Club / hire your worthless buddies" mentality. Junior engineering staff expected to fill the gaps somehow for incompetent business "leadership". At times there are more VPs then regular employees. Misrepresentation of company capabilities to clients. The best employees laid off or quitting due to defense budget cuts and lack of new business even though similar companies are doing fine. Little to no respect for employees attempting to "do whatever it takes". Any attempt to display or share concerns is taken as insubordination. Company management is in "don't care" phase now.

    Advice to Management

    Management thinks they know everything already which is why they are where they are now. Hire more of your buddies, maybe they have the answers. Maybe one piece of advice, stop pretending to the customers the business has left. They already know.


  3. Poor Management

    I have been working at Forward Slope full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Allowed to work remote. Interesting DoD work spread all over US/Africa. HQ is based in the heart of San Diego.

    Cons

    Bizarre company structure (the amount of vice presidents in the company seems straight out of American Psycho), constant title changes. Small Defense business that took a massive hit due to budget cuts.
