    Agile software development, brilliant staff, company with a great future

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany has hired a lot of new management that brings a new generation of leadership and openness to new ideas, innovation and culture. I'm especially excited about the Business Intelligence and Analytics capabilities.

    ConsEach federal client environment is different. Make sure to match up your personality with the client site, because they are not all equal. Just do your homework and you will be happy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI see new momentum growing. New VP of software development is a great addition to the leadership team. Keep it up.

    Pragmatic is an Innovative, High-Quality & Very Customer Excellence Focused

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Reston, VA

    Pros-Strong culture of performance and rewards innovation
    -Great Benefits
    -Financially stable and plans for the long-term, unlike many government contractors I worked with.
    -Solid and experienced program management with great credentials
    -Strong ethics and focus on delighting the customers

    Cons-Like all government contractors, we are subject to the highs and lows of the market but overall faired much better than our larger competitors.
    -Would like to see more options for long-term career development

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider institutionalizing technical training so employees can rise up to middle management from the lower ranks. If you do that, Pragmatics will realize it's full potential as the market leader that it is in software development CMMI 5.
