    20-year employee

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsSalaries are reasonable
    Treats employees as adults (if the customer is happy and you work the correct amount of hours, you can pretty much come and go at will)
    Very ethics oriented
    Customer focused

    ConsLots of changes over the past 5 years, some not as helpful as others.
    Pro and con: different parts of the company have completely different vibes. If you land in one you don't like, re-deploy to another.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop with the changes for a while and let us breathe.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Senior Systems Engineer

    Senior Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsBonus are based on performance, My work spoke for itself, so I received a nice bonuse

    ConsPerformance reviews do not reflect individual achievement. I received a rating of a 2 out of 5, while knowing that all who provided input into my review gave me 4 and 5's. I was told by the contract manager not to worry about it because, He new all I had accomplished, and it would not affect my bonus. He was right, it did not, but future managers looking back on my review may not see it that way.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen your people provide outstanding performance, don't just say it to them, make sure it goes in their records.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
