    Pros

    Great benefits, opportunities to learn, career advancement, employees are recognized for good work on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Reston is not the greatest place to work. It's expensive to live nearby and the town lacks character. The company has also lost it's character since becoming part of Deltek's software empire.

    Pros

    Great team to work with.

    Most people working at the company had never worked for a government contractor and because of this didn't fully understand their priorities.

    Pros

    Management was rather down to earth. They communicated well through the process of the company being put on the market for sale. Many young people. They honored recognized and rewarded hard work.

    Cons

    Pending sale of company stopped innovation at various levels of the company. You had to work very hard to find productivity.

    Pros

    INPUT(Deltek) was full of smart, accountable people. It's a fun, young environment.

    Cons

    Clients include a lot of defense contractors. Depending on your perspective, working to build that industry may not be a good thing.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to advance your career with other employers.
    Industry Leader in their space
    Amazing opportunity to learn how the government does business and the processes and methodologies that go behind the federal acquisition process.

    Cons

    Not a place you can see yourself working with for a long time.
    TOO MUCH OFFICE POLITICS and PICKING FAVORATs
    Very small market space to sell into as they offer a very a niche solution in very competitive and draining industry that is GOVERNMENT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership at INPUT was horrible! It all starts with the TOP and trickles down to the very bottom...!

    I worked at INPUT

    Pros

    Cool co-workers
    Working from home was fantastic
    some real exposure to big contracting companies in the DC area
    fairly easy to get promoted

    Cons

    it was easy to get promoted because of the turnover rate
    INPUT was used as a stepping stone for people (including me), and management seemed to design policies to encourage that behavior
    repetitive work/cold calling made the job pretty unbearable sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    create some stability in the company. hire for long-term and continue promoting from within.

    I know this sounds like a smear post, but this place really is that bad.

    Pros

    Very easy job
    you never have to use your brain
    you don't even have to be average to look above-average here
    pay decent considering how little you have to actually do

    Cons

    No substantive work;
    dead-end job in the truest sense;
    below-average but not horrible compensation;
    surprisingly incompetent management;
    "research" on operations team actually means cold calling govt contracting employees and asking questions you shouldn't be asking and they shouldn't be answsering;management regularly purposely misinforms or witholds information from employees;
    attrition is highest I've ever seen in any organization in any industry: we lost over 20 employees on a ~25 person team in 10 months;
    the operations department is treated and compensated far worse than the rest of the company;
    over 90% of operations team wanted new employment the entire time I worked there;
    management has instantly terminated employees in goodstanding as soon as they submit their 2 week notice;
    HR Dept. is less than 3 years old and it shows

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get an effective HR department, treat employees with respect, and fix all of these obvious problems
