    Pros

    The company personnel are generally very professional.

    Cons

    One has to like snow to work there in the winter months
    ELP program is fine, however, over hiring in this category leads to excessive middle management in the long run.
    Some senior ELPs could use leadership sensitivity training

    Advice to Management

    Maintain your knowledge base to the maximum extent possible. The customer might not always serve the best interest of the company when negotiating future contracts.

    Pros

    There were many opportunities to streamline processes, process improvement, consolidate workload, and cross train. Pay was good for those that had many years of service. I enjoyed the diversity of the company.

    Cons

    The state of the business did not allow for the company to keep all employees. Downsizing was necessary, but often looked as unfair.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, great people and work environment, flexible work schedule, challenging and interesting work, nice health center, business rebounding

    Cons

    Our primary customer, government, has had budget issues creating business challenges and fierce competition. IT rules too restrictive and antiquated

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on long term objectives while continuing to make positive strides tackling near term challenges. Continue to promote from within and grow internal talent.

    Pros

    Great place to work, been here 32 years. Lots of interesting programs to work on. Great pay and benefits. Family Atmosphere. Happy customers that keep coming back, even when there are problems. Great technology.

    Cons

    The company is suffering from the current decrease in defense spending. Hopefully that will turn around soon.

    Advice to Management

    Provide employees with a rotation program so they can experience more of what C4S has to offer. More group and one-on-one communication with management.

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Very interesting defense-type work. Good people, very professional. Hours are flexible and accommodating. Work-life balance is encouraged.

    Cons

    Because of cutbacks in govt funding, layoffs are common place. Workloads have increased substantially in the last 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Recommend sharing the wealth from other parts of the company to support the R&D in the emerging areas where C4 has core expertise and years of experience. Focus more effort on winning new business.
