    Pros

    They are aggressive in their recruiting practices so they make you really feel like they want you. It's only too bad that the reality is such a 180.

    Cons

    They fire people over nothing. Nothing! One person was fired because his shirt lacked a collar. We were working on a client site, but still, there's no excuse for that. When I left and went to another company on an adjacent contract, everyone down to the last person had the same reaction: "Leonie treats their people with contempt." DO NOT work for this company, they will stifle you with increasingly ridiculous company policies, treat you like you only exist to make them money, and will sooner threaten you with termination than they will support you. (Oh and their HR reps will run amok as well and put out policies like the aforementioned collar thing.)

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up and try fostering a culture of support instead of one of fear. I've never heard a PM wonder why there was such high turnover, only to turn around and fire people with impunity.

    Leadership should get to know their team, be accountable and available.

    Advice to Management

    Be dynamic, embrace your entire team, everyone's opinion matter's, be available, lead by example, take time to understand proven processes, foster and build relationships, understand generation gaps and use them to your advantage, be consistent, eliminate top down favoritism.

    Pros

    Management is very accessible. It's been a positive working environment and experience.

    Cons

    Communication with the employees and company opportunities are things you sometimes have to find out for yourself. The compensation and benefits depends on the contract. Sometimes the best person doesn't always get the job.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent and transparent about information and decisions.

    Pros

    The support staff was awesome. There was never a problem that wasn't solved immediately. I really enjoy working for Leonie Industries.

    Cons

    When my contract was ending, there wasn't anything else for me to go to, so I have to look elsewhere for employment, where as I would rather have stayed with Leonie.

    Pros

    I was empowered to conduct many wonderful projects. Autonomous, middle management trusted me completely. Great variety of projects. Telecommuted. Great technology support.

    Cons

    Everyone's job stability greatly depends on government contracts, which are won or lost based on top-level management's sense of direction in the business development concerns of the government defense contracting world.

    Advice to Management

    When the government contracts are coming in, life is great. However, when those contracts get "thin" and top management gets nervous and fails to empower the people they've hired, life becomes an exercise in paranoid survival.

    Pros

    The company is small enough that the CEO knows your name.

    Cons

    The company is to small to fight off the big boys on campus.
