    Not a bad place, and you can get your security clearance

    Senior Engineer, Systems (Current Employee) Arlington, VA

    ProsThe work is interesting due to the client base, all Federal Gov. or DoD.
    Mostly run as a respectful large company, very cautious about ethics, but also flexible on an individual basis

    ConsThey work from contract to contract. Once your project is over, you have to find something else or change jobs. There is very little matrixing of one employee to several different jobs.
    I was hired at a lower grade than my qualifications due to an existing opening. Now after proving my worth many times, I am having difficulty getting the promotion and raise I think is justified by my performance and peer review.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more judicious in handling hiring, raises, transfers, and promotions.
    Consider sharing people across different activities for more continuity and reduced struggle in recruiting.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
