    Pros

    pays/benefits are slightly better than market, especially in the DC metro area

    Cons

    senior leadership talent is below average; very prone to hiring externally for any leadership role as opposed to developing/promoting people internally. Communication is poor across the board. High tolerance for mediocrity is frustrating. Very top heavy with each new incoming exec focused on building their own fiefdom.

    Pros

    The compensation is good, but if you think at your hourly rate not good . Benefits are good, but you will need them the working environment is poison to your soul.

    Cons

    Taken for granted. Expected to work 24 7. Expected to do with less is the understatement. It is a old boys network. Management will not listen to those doing the work

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your current employees like you do the strangers that come in off the street.

    Rigid Organizational structure, Sill carries the hierarchical culture from their telecommunication era. Ideas can get lost while passing through several layers of the management chain.
