    Pros

    PSS is a great place to work for and the upper management truly cares about their employees!

    Cons

    I really don't have anything negative to say about this company.

    Pros

    There are a select few people in the company that make you go starry eyed. These individuals are becoming more rare. I can't say I was any more impressed and happy with my direct manager than I have ever been before.

    Cons

    Unfortunately there is a lot of turnover. My project turned over 8 in a year. Losing the key person that held the flood gates shut from the VP/CEO of the company to hard nose everyone. Salary negotiations are terrible and there will be snubs. There are no cross project transfers to liven things up.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to keep your guys. People shouldn't feel like chips that can be lost.

    Pros

    It's in the middle of Tysons Corner, so the bars and restaurants you'll need after leaving work (and you will need a drink after working there) are a short walk away from the office.

    Cons

    Executives are ruthless, backstabbing and will throw anyone under the bus to suit their needs. HR is a machine that inputs people in like a data, treats people like data, and spits them out like yesterday's trash when the company is done with you. Their team of recruiters are terrible and make fun of the people they call for positions as soon as they hang up on them.

    Advice to Management

    Take lessons on being human beings.

    HORRIBLE INTERVIEW PROCESS

    Pros

    NOTHING. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. There is nothing nice to say, so why say something.

    Cons

    TERRIBLE RECRUITING DEPARTMENT. LEAVE CANDIDATES WONDERING. NEVER RESPONDS BACK TO CANDIDATES. I've called the hiring manager (it was a recruiting job) and the recruiter and neither of them got back to me. I've also emailed them both and still nothing. I interview 2 months ago. I finally called today and the recruiter informed me that they changed the hiring criteria. Really? I'm ok with not getting the job what I'm upset about is not being informed of the process like I was told in the interview. This leaves a horrible taste in my mouth. I will NEVER EVER apply for a position with this so called government contractor. I wouldn't want to work for a team like this anyway because they don't let their candidate know nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Make the recruiting department notify candidates of their status. This is horrible the way it is set up now. Even when you call and email nothing. Why would someone want to work for a company like this.

    Pros

    The company is willing to offer growth opportunities as long as you make it clear what you would like to do in the future. They offer tuition/certification reimbursement, which is a big plus.

    Cons

    More tuition reimbursement would be nice, but understandable that it's not possible in this economy.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on internal advancement, hire more "worker bees" and grow them into newer roles - the company is already doing a lot of this, but can always use more!

    Pros

    A good solid company to for. The right mix of corporate support and mid level management. Great program managers to work with. Exceptional people to work with on a daily basis.

    Cons

    The only negative comment is not about PSS, but DOD contracting in general. Feels very insecure at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Business development needs to be the highest priority, followed by helping employees maintain ongoing confidence in business prospects.

    Pros

    Regularly interact with upper management. Good potential for career growth. Management understands that the company rises and falls with its employees.

    Cons

    Because it's government work, you can only count on work until your contract is re-bid.
