    Good Work Environment, But Poor Placement If Contract Ends

    Former Employee - Support Manager in Springfield, VA

    I worked at ManTech full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Professional work environment and competitive salary; The company is good at hiring talented individuals and Program Managers and the various programs that I worked on seemed to be well run; Benefits are competitive with surrounding industry; The company can typically retain many individuals due to the moderate work environment

    Cons

    If your contract is ending, the company offers little help in finding other positions within the company; No profit sharing or bonuses for "regular" professionals even if SLAs are met; The key to longevity with the company is finding new work for yourself if your position or contract is ending or ends, otherwise you will be let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer serious placement within the company (especially for long-term employees) and incorporate some sort of bonus or performance recognition program that is not entirely random.

    I have been working at ManTech full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of training options, committed to growth in position and in company if that's your goal. Good benefits and training availability. My team is comprised of a dedicated group of professionals who are committed to doing a job they can be proud of which insulates us from politics of big company and difficult customers.

    Cons

    Contract driven so have to be willing to adjust to different contract needs and customer changes in wants. Large company with all downside of dealing with large company policies and processes and bottom line needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make sure your excellent employees are working at challenging and satisfying tasks and keep communications open during stressful transitions

    I have been working at ManTech full-time

    Pros

    Good team with very highly skilled professionals.
    They pay overtime on some contracts.

    Cons

    Offsite employees don't feel like part of the company.
    Upper management can be too far removed from the issues of the teams.
    When the contract ends, the company is basically done with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time getting to know the employees who are embedded with the customer. Invest more in a transition program to allow employees to move to new projects once current contract is up

    I have been working at ManTech full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The autonomy of the job is quite refreshing and the benefits are good. Experience largely dependent on your immediate supervisor.

    Cons

    Terrible senior level management. Revolving door policy for contracts which results in nearly zero vertical advancement. Corporate policy is to not rock the boat and if you do rock the boat with a product/project...you are on your own. Overtime expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Working at ManTech feels like a transitional job. The employee works for the duration of a contract and then gets cut. This undermines employee loyalty.
