    Just another outsourcing company

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
    Fairfax, VA

    Pros- Some people are smart
    - A few were trying to make a difference
    - There was good parking space available
    - They were profitable

    Cons- They do not value technical resources
    - Only managers and sales people generally get any respect
    - The rest are treated like a commodity
    - The company always hid things from the employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementA company like this is all about the people that stay there. If you do not value your rank and file workforce, you end up with basically the kind of people that cannot find job elsewhere.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Formerly good company fading quickly

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
    Fairfax, VA

    ProsNot as bureaucratic as other big consulting firms

    ConsCareer growth opportunities and company culture have been very poor since the merger. Used to be a project-based environment with short, strategic assignments. Now, business model is "body shop" with long, tactical staffing agreements. Margins are under severe pressure and competition is intense. Company has an upside-down pyramid structure - not at all what a consulting firm should be. Consequently there are few opportunities for growth. Benefits have been cut due to low profitability. Insurance costs more and we get less. No bonuses for over 5 years. Training opportunities are very limited - no budget.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to employee morale.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
