    Cheap company; Management Fluff

    Satellite Communications Engineer (Former Employee) Chantilly, VA

    Prosneat projects; worked on a number of neat projects for a great customer

    ConsThe company won't even provide free coffee. Management offered no raises due to the bad economy yet were redoing the VPs office as the previous VPs office wasn't nice enough for him. If people on a project are under performing they will add resources therefore spending money and will cut others positions who weren't underperforming to pay for fixing the other underperforming part of the project.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe people at every level actually matter to your bottom line.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Get your clearance and get out.

    Security Guard (Current Employee) Chantilly, VA

    Pros1) A lot of time off.
    2) No work related stress what so ever.
    3) If your in school this is the perfect job to have since out of an 8hr work day you really only have 40 min of true work.
    4) get paid to surf the internet.
    5) As soon as I'm done with school or a better oppurtunity I'm out.

    Cons1) No stress what so ever so after 1 day alittle stress would be welcomed since you can only surf the internt so long.
    2) No room for growth if your interested in security.
    3) Low pay but what can you expext with a job were all you do is sit and watch movies online.

    Employees are just a commodity

    Software Test Engineer (Former Employee) Chantilly, VA

    ProsLarge company with many options. Company has respect in the workforce. Decent, though not outstanding, benefit package. They have many good people working there that will support you even if there is a lack of support from senior mngt. Good education benefits.

    ConsHigher level mngt give no support to employees. No follow through on promised promotions, no support when contract ends, they just dump you. Salaries tend not to be competitive, Senior mngt has very poor communication with employees, lack of direction in many fields (especially healthcare it).

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in employees. Treat them fairly, realize that they represent your company to the customer.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
