    Very Program dependent. Get on the right project and its great

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsTons of work activities, Connect1NG, full paid tuition, lots of different places and things to work on. Great place to start your career. PDP program. GREAT benefits

    ConsWhen things are slow, they drag. If you get stuck on a bad program, you will either have nothing to do or get fired. Company tends to overhire then fire. They also tend to bid the Cadillac when the Ford will do (and that's what the government wants).

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive more lateral movements to your current employees.

    Program Planner Sr.

    Program Planner (Former Employee) El Segundo, CA

    ProsExcellent benefits and pay. People work well together

    ConsLong way to drive. Facility located near LAX.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to mix young and older employees in a fair way. Too many younger employees were being promoted over seasoned veteran employees. Not good for cohesiveness.

    IT Manager

    IT Manager (Current Employee) Fort Leavenworth, KS

    ProsThe company offers a great benefits package with competitive pay. In addition, there was a lot of room for upward growth and they catered professional development with extra funds. Also, they had a good bonus program and upper management had a good open door policy.

    ConsThe biggest issue I had with working there was the travel. Though they stated two to three months a year I spent over 170 days on the road supporting missions. Also, there were times when you felt like an outsider never having served in the Military.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would like to see the management be proactive when hiring and open about the time involved with travel.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Understanding your job at the beginning is difficult, but fellow employees are always there to help.

    College Technical Intern (Current Employee) Oklahoma City, OK

    ProsThe pay is great! You get paid for standard U.S. holidays even as an intern. There is a flexible work schedule. The dress is lax. The work is enjoyable.

    ConsIt is tough to know what is expected of you at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInform employees of different starting elements better. Example: not knowing you are automatically enrolled in a benefits program, regardless of being an intern.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
