    Pros

    Work environment, locations, buildings, software packages

    Cons

    Salaries are good, about 80% from the Big 7 Govt contractors. Like everywhere else, insurance packages are minimal investments for the companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on long term retention.

    I have been working at ManTech full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent management, and administrative staff. Management has a hands off style, which allows the employees to shine on their own.

    Cons

    I am working on a contract, and there is little communication between ManTech headquarters and employees on contract. There is also a disconnect between expectations of contract and headquarters employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on communications between headquarters and contract staff to bridge the gap in expectations. Employees on contracts have little connection with corporate culture and can feel alienated from the culture.

    Pros

    Great employee benefits plan, supportive HR staff, good reputation in the government IT field.

    Cons

    HR personnel don't know much about employees and activities of remotely-located projects. However, this situation shoes signs of improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mid-level and upper-level management need to become more familiar with remotely-located projects' activities and employees.

    I have been working at ManTech full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They have you set goals each year and how many of those goals you achieve and work performance determines your pay raise. There are often opportunities for advancement. Management actually likes there job so the environment isnt so tense as say a retail sales environment. The pay is also decent.

    Cons

    Some departments arent able to work from home depending on management and assignments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and keep listening to feedback from staff.

    Pros

    The location is good since it's a walking distance to the shopping center. Good working environment at least on the 3rd floor that I'm aware of.

    Cons

    I think the health benefits should be cheaper. Their hardware for the Herndon office could use an update. Some people are stuck up and won't even say hi to you.

    I worked at ManTech as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    ManTech provides excellent benefits and is very supportive of their employees. Compensation is above average and their vacation policies are generous. I found this out when I transitioned to another company - not so much with my new company. In many cases, if you leave this organization with a positive and productive work history, they will re-hire you and this was the case with me. Also, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that they used my previous employment with them to add to my tenure (number of years worked) to their organization. Overall, my experience with ManTech was a very positive experience and I would encourage others to work for them.

    Cons

    There are few negative aspects to ManTech. I worked as an overseas contractor and my biggest frustration was the lack of disciplining or terminating employees for not doing their jobs and/or unprofessional behavior. However, ManTech is a very large organization and there are many barriers to terminating employees and this is often the rule when working as a government contractor overseas. You must be very specific and provide all documentation (often reviewed by legal) before a person is terminated for fear of frivolous lawsuits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall very satisfied with management and how I was treated. I may consider applying with them again in the future.

    Pros

    I work with a really great team at ManTech for a project with DHS. The people are friendly and makes coming to work enjoyable

    Cons

    The downside of ManTech is the salary and benefits. If you work on a client site, there is very little benefit. ManTech employees can't telework while government staff can, and during a shutdown you are unpaid unless you use your own vacation day. The pay is not competitive with other defense contractors in the area. Upon getting hired, I had to ask for the med/dent benefit info. The HR recruiter was rude and said you will see it when you start work. That tells you that it was noting to brag about so they wanted to get you in the door for this low ball contract and then tell you the bad news.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be competitive and keep up with other defense contractors. Offer more benefits to employees working on client sites or they will quit when better comes along.
