    Pros

    Employee benefits are superb with bonuses and 401-K contributions. Vested immediately

    Cons

    Minimal communications of company business initiatives with employees at dispersed work sites; no effort to redefine job after gov't contract ended.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct a talent search within Pragmatics for competes on new contracts. Loads of talent in various subsidiaries, i.e. ISI that is unknown to management.

    The Best of Government Contractors

    Pros

    *Strong internal processes. It's hard for managers who may not want you to shine too much to keep you down.
    * Excellent Pay. They offer good money from the start for what you can do for them and pay via performance and offer multiple opportunities per year to get a raise. No frat club snobbery here, you're judged by what you bring to the table and they LIKE intellectuals and serious techies
    *Good Benefits. Education/ Skillport/ College Support, good vacation and other "standard" benes people tend to skip on these days, annual party, happy hours, occasional lunch covered
    *For all the things I say below, they are a steady company overall. If you can get on a strong contract, or multiple contracts, you're golden
    *Very little nonsense, and there's much to be said for it

    Cons

    *Overtime pay doesn't happen often. You'd have to pass 96 hours in a period to get anything extra.
    *Strange Mom and Pop dynamics in upper management. Sometimes your phone gets collected or some other dumb thing happens because someone close to the big cheese gets involved and what they say goes. It's weird little stuff though and nothing that couldn't be dealt with.
    *The government isn't as strong as it was for a steady gig. I loved the place but they didn't keep the account. They're steady overall but if you lose your gig, there's some support but not a great chance you'll stay. I could have a taken a more fun gig, but I took this one because I thought it would be steady. No such luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really. Just keep doing your best. It looks like the younger guy in the upper echelon is smart and cool, and the big cheese is actually pretty cool too for the most part. General Manager was just moving into his space when I left, but he's the real deal. I'd love to see you guys sell to the private sector so there are more fun things to do.

    Pros

    Job has some stability, Paychecks are on time.

    Company benefits are good on paper, no funding for employee education program. Small consulting firm where salary is your total package.
