    High School Physics teacher

    Physics Teacher (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsI have more than 11 years experience teaching Physical-Chemistry and Thermodynamics at College in Venezuela. This activity was developed as a part time while I was working in my main profession as a Chemical Engineer. Now, retired, I am willing to teach to young people all my experiences.

    ConsProbably the language. My English is basically technical. What I should need is some practice and that is all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI could give some advisory to students in many disciplines.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Nice, family-run company

    Program Analyst I (Former Employee)
    Arlington, VA

    ProsSA really treated their employees like family: Everyone went to bat for you. They really tried to make sure you felt like part of the company, even if you (like most) worked offsite at another location.

    ConsLow pay, compared to other contractors. Not as many employee appreciation events like in years past, which created less comeraderie between SA employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart reinvesting in your employees again!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worth a critical examination of the rosy picture presented

    Program Analyst (Former Employee)
    Arlington, VA

    ProsThere is a desire to foster comraderie among SA employees that is commendable, though management's efforts to tailor those activities to the desires of the employees are largely hollow. Employees are SA's biggest asset.

    ConsPartiality in personnel decision making often tends to favor personal or familial connections to the corporate 'inner circle' versus one's proven skills or abilities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEfforts to engage employees should include plans for incorporation or resolution of feedback, lest they be perceived as hollow gestures.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
