    Great company to work for!

    Systems Administrator (Current Employee)

    Good management, strong company growth, dynamic projects

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFulcrum is still relatively small (but growing quickly), but all levels of management (up to the CEO) are very transparent and accessible from day one. I work on-site with the client, and management is very light-touch unless we need something or it's essential for them to get involved. We were hired for our skills, and they trust us to get the job done without micromanaging.

    Lots of opportunities for training and gaining experience with new skills and projects.

    Incredible company growth in the two years I've been here (snatching up companies left and right, diversifying).

    Fair pay for where I am career-wise, and the benefits are pretty nice.

    ConsLove my job, and I've expanded my skill set so much in a short time, but I feel there's limited upward mobility in my position. May vary from position-to-position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep hiring good people.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Benefits are fine for individual, not for family.

    The Ins and Outs you might not think of

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsFree healthcare to the employee. Unlimited technology training. Very lax on company policies in order to benefit the employee.

    ConsEverything comes with a price... if you indulge on their benefits outside of the free healthcare it'll cost you more in time you need to work for them. If you quit or are fired before the expected time has expired, you must repay any and all debts that haven't been fulfilled. This includes negative PTO, educational and technology trainings debts, 401k vestment, etc.

    Sr. Management doesn't care about their employees; they are money driven only;

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Manassas Park, VA

    ProsThe worker bees there are great and that is what sustains Fulcrum; but they are unappreciated; good health insurance benefits

    ConsTelecommuting is not an option; Sr. Management is not loyal to employees; HR Dept is not supportive; Employees are let go for no good cause or without supporting documentation. Rather they say a position has been eliminated. Not meeting affirmative action goals.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees fairly and recognize them when they have done a good job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Best contract experience

    Vetting Specialist (Current Employee) Baghdad (Iraq)

    ProsGood DoD contract rates. I decided on Fulcrum IT over DoD contracting employers due to the good monthly compensation without any minimum requirements.

    Cons2 week pay arrears
    Rapid company contact turnover. Had 3 Company contacts in 4 months. Made it difficult for continuity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdjust 2 week pay arrears to meet industry norms.
