    Pros

    Great company with amazing potential.

    Cons

    Too many politics to the detriment of quality of life.

    Focus on growth, not on power. It will pay off in the long run.

    Pros

    Better than average salary and benefits: 401-K match, education allowance, 4 weeks leave. Nice people. Everyone was friendly and pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    The company is small and is not able to provide any bench time. There were also no opportunities for growth. The client that I was supporting was difficult. They did not do much planning and did not have a clear idea of their staffing needs. They would hire people and then let them go a few months later just because they decided they did not need people with such skills any more or because they ran out of money and could not keep them. This happened to me and 2 other colleagues of mine. The company was very sorry and apologetic they had to let us go, but they could not find us jobs and keep us on the bench.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your promises and cultivate talent. Get clients who will provide long-term work for your staff.

    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits (20 days PTO plus every government holiday!)

    Cons

    Not very organized. Very high manager to worker bee ratio. Tasking is often outside your job description.

    Pros

    Good monetary compensation, good leave policy

    Cons

    The company is unreasonably stingy in terms of benefits - short term disability pay out is a joke (an issue for employees who fall ill or go on maternity leave), 401K contribution is minimal and not competitive, health insurance coverage is pretty lousy.

    There is little to no opportunity for upward mobility. Management appears to be stuck in their ways.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth with your employees, literally and figuratively.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits were slightly above average, if you can keep your job.

    Cons

    Company only has a few contracts so when the contract I was on was downsized after only 2 1/2 months of working for them, there wasn't another position for me to go to and they laid me off. That's the first time in 20 years that this has happened.

    Advice to Management

    Stay involved with what your off site employees who are on government contracts are doing, and make sure they are happy and the customer is happy so you aren't surprised when the contract loses a position. Make sure you know what skills your employees have so that you can place them more easily if the contract they are working on is downsized. Remember that you are dealing with people who have families and bills to pay. Make more of an effort to find work for them before you kick them to the curb.

    Pros

    ID kept me on board for over a year to do internal work despite losing the contract I was originally hired for. They helped me get my security clearance figured out and made sure I was happy.

    Cons

    ID is really two companies. One in VA and one in MD. The leadership at the top is good, but there is infighting and mismanagement below them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep engineers happy by buttoning up middle management. Reward VPs whose business grows.
