    Pros

    Great supervisor always concerned with employee morale. The work was enjoyable and interesting. Great interaction and communication with many of the national parks.

    Subcontracted to the National Park Service. At times it was difficult working with Federal employees. The government employees looked down on contract employees making the working environment difficult.

    Pros

    Leadership at IBA has a real interest in the well-being of employees and their families. Work / Life balance is encouraged and, although at the end of the day, this is a business, they truly care about you and will work to help you when needed. We have a comprehensive benefits package and because everyone is so friendly, work is made less stressful even during times of increasing workloads.

    Cons

    This is a midsize company so career growth is limited but the company does work with employees to identify training opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay visible.

    Pros

    Flexible work enviorment. It feels like a we are part of one team. The medical and dental benefits are good.

    Cons

    Upward mobility is limited because it's a mid-size company. But, they do promote within and are good about working with you and moving you to other contracts when you need a change.

    Pros

    Pay was good as was the medical plan.

    Cons

    Lumping sick time and vacation into a single pool is a poor model for the employee. Upper management seems to be cluless as to what line management is up to.

    Advice to Management

    Retire now.

    Pros

    Team building events. Medium size so you can get to know Sr. Management easily. Fair compensation. Excellent professional development program. Excellent reputation with Gov't clients.

    Cons

    Mostly contract positions. Not as large of a "bench" capability to shelter good employees between contracts. Not a place for entry level employees, normally only looking for experienced personel. The work environment on some contracts can be very hectic and stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Identify and nuture your true star performers.

    Pros

    Excellent communications between Senior Management and employees Incorporation of employee ideas into company growth and improvements

    Cons

    I am unable to think of any cons to working at Irving Burton Associates. It is truly a great place to work, as noted by the 2009 Washingtonian Magazine survey.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep doing a great job making Irving Burton Associates a great place to work in the Washington DC metro area.

    Pros

    Line employees (non-managers) are nice and want to do good work

    Cons

    Management is disengaged and uninterested in happiness of employees. This company has virtually no processes and is far behind the times from a technological standpoint. Benefits are below standard, even for a small company, and micromanagement is the standard. Managers are afraid to say "no" to the customer. Employees working at the customer feel totally alienated from IBA management and other employees who work at the corporate/Skyline office.

    Advice to Management

    Better screening of candidates for management positions to ensure they have not only the technical skills, but also the personality required to manage people.
