    Pros

    Good place to start out if you don't have years of experience and need to get more experience.

    Cons

    You'll make less than the guy sitting next to you.
    It's difficult if not impossible to get an email response from management. (Fat chance you'll ever meet in person).
    Mediocre benefits at best.
    Very limited room to grow.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere of collaboration - no one hesitates to lend each other a hand. Brilliant engineers are turning out top-tier work. The CEO is very personable and the VPs/senior leaders are very well connected to the staff and to the projects. This fast-growing mid-tier company is doing industry-leading work.

    Cons

    Company's growth is outpacing its internal business functions, but they're working hard to staff up.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay close to the staff and to the work as you grow; this is a major differentiator.

    Pros

    The Fulcrum company is very Family Oriented, provides Opportunities for Personal Growth, lives in a Process Oriented world and provides for Large Governmental Clients, among others.

    Cons

    Growth is strong right now, which changes some of the corporate dynamics, but nothing that is not leading to a better place to work in the end

    Advice to Management

    Continue the strong employee involvement in the companies growth and successes

    Pros

    Company did a really good job at doing their best for caring about employees.

    Cons

    Project Manager was never around. Saw him only about 5 times during my year long employment, though he's a really good guy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep caring about your employees. Please don't lose focus of the entire staff.

    Pros

    straight arrow and no games. They do what they say and take care of their people

    Cons

    Can't. think of any at this time so I'll keep writing this to meet the minimum word count for the Cons section.

    Advice to Management

    To the page CEO: Stay the course as Fulcrum is by far the best inj the DOD contracting world.

    Pros

    Fulcrum 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.

    Cons

    Love 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 Management

    Keep hiring good people.
