    Pros

    This is a company that treats their employees fairly. They have nice incentive programs when you refer other employees, and they have a good reward and recognition program and other perks. Even during a challenging economic climate, the company didn't let it impact the employees.

    Cons

    The only thing I would say needs work is the communication. Sometimes information is disseminated as often or quickly as it should be and it can feel like information isn't shared freely.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the lines of communication open with the employees.

    Pros

    The company continues to grow and diversify and has navigated the extremes and challenges that have impacted businesses that focus on Government contracting well. The company is responsive and is willing to try things that hold a promise of improving the corporate culture and customer experience.

    Cons

    The company has relented and contracted with some personnel in the industry that due to rate challenges have chosen to be independent contractors or 1099's that truly do not understand what it take or are not prepared to be in business for themselves and confuse the independent contractor role with that of being an employee. Don't get me wrong there are plenty of well versed 1099 contractors and the company has some real good ones. But there is from time to time one or two that complicate the operations of a well run company. This adds lots of overhead for the company and the managers who have to deal with novices that are inexperienced at business.

    Advice to Management

    Check out the 1099's and ensure that they are experienced and understand what it takes to be an independent subcontractor and do not expect to be treated as employees.

    Pros

    Whether you are a resource on-site or in the back office, RTGX is a great place to learn, grow and succeed within the fast paced Government contracting industry. Each member of management brings 30+ years of experience within the field. The management's willingness to go the extra mile and sit down with you to discuss questions, thoughts and concerns has been such an invaluable asset while working here. I can point out countless times where each member of management here has helped me in one way or another to better myself and my knowledge base of industry processes, standards and business practices. RTGX truly believes bettering their current staff and helping them with work and even personal aspirations today will help improve the future outlook for everyone who is involved with the Company. Having been here for over two years now I can say that four general principals here at RTGX are to live the company values, focus on getting things accomplished, always have open door communication policy and lastly HAVE FUN while doing it.

    Cons

    No small business has perfect processes in place and RTGX isn't an exception to that. However when a process gap is identified by the management team they carefully review the situation and poignantly make adjustments to business practices directly addressing that issue and make sure that the area where the issue was identified can be looked to as a business strength rather than a vulnerability.

    A lot working of experience with upper level management.
    Flexible working schedules.
    Lots of experience in different spheres of business development within DOD contractor enterprise.
    Great can-do culture among the staff.

    Cons

    Noisy break room.

    Allow leadership to share more knowledge with lower level employees.
    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    You felt like you were one of the elite; working for one of the best companies in the market, a company that was very selective about who it hired. The compensation was fair. The benefits were awesome - especially the 401K and training. Leadership knew you and you knew leadership. Career development was the mantra for taking care of staff. The annual assessments were constructive and critical; there might be some hard pills to swallow in the debrief but the information was typically spot-on and was meant to help you grow as a professional.

    Cons

    Sometimes work isn't ideal based on your skills and interests, depending on available projects. But working for a small business everyone has to pitch in to make the deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Keep striving and RTGX will continue to grow in the industry!


  7. They Go the extra mile

    Pros

    They really work hard to keep you employed when other firms just lay you off. I have seen employees leave and come back and some retire.

    Cons

    Challenges are not unique, the Government market is in a down turn and they still manage to push forward and diversify - but it's tough out there - these guys stay on top of things.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working hard to diversify and expand to create more opportunity. Leverage the great brand you have to your benefit and that of the employees

    Pros

    Small company with mostly friendly people. Potentially a good place to learn some new skills related to skills you already have, but you'll need to learn on your own because they won't train you.

    Cons

    If you're a family member of one of the owners of the company then you'll be fine, but everyone else will have little or no opportunity for career advancement. Top management is concerned only with money and how they can get more of it. As far as I can tell from LinkedIn, a very high percentage of the people I worked with have also left, so there is apparently a retention problem (except of course for the family members).

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people rather than just factors to your bottom line. Pay people what they're actually worth and offer more competitive benefits.

    Pros

    Ok organization, allowed me to get into the career field.

    Cons

    Compensation is on the low side. Career progression is limited. Benefits or ok, room for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    You will not retain quality long term personnel with the light compensation in competitive areas.

    Pros

    Great experience in the computer networking field. I worked in a dying technology, but you are surrounded by technologies that will give you good skills for your next job. If you try to learn as much as you can, this will be a good place first step in your career in the field. Co-workers were great and the Ross management were friendly.

    Cons

    Low pay for the computer networking market. Nobody from RTGX got a raise while I was there. 12 hour shifts which required you to work every other weekend Fri-Sun. There is very little manpower which requires a huge workload, almost impossible. Lockheed Martin, the main contractor seems to be a little over their heads when it comes to managing this contract. Lockheed management is very distant from those in the NOC, not understanding the environment and not appreciating everything we actually did. Ross management was very hard to get ahold of. This is lot a place to spend your career, just start it.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the workers for what they are actually worth. Hire enough people to handle the workload and get them off the 12 hour shifts. Listen to what the employees have to say and actually try to make an effort to change for the better. It's not their fault you didn't know what you were bidding on, so stop taking shortages out of their pockets.
