    Pros

    The management team works very hard and genuinely cares for employees. High caliber people across the company with strong commitment to the homeland security mission.

    Cons

    Typical small business challenges. Suspended 401(k) match, technical training opportunities are lacking. Virtual company (no offices) is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Tough market right now but things appear to be improving, hang in there.

    Pros

    Employees are challenged and allowed to grow. The CEO takes chances by showing trust in his employees, encouraging creativity, and ownership.

    Cons

    This is a top-heavy company with a lot of supervisors. Employees have to spend a lot of time supporting the company with writing proposals and working on two contracts at the same time (though, not often). But, this does enhance resumes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!


  9. Fantastic Company

    Pros

    Compensated and treated well. Managers are not intrusive and allow for employees to be rewarded based on merit.

    Cons

    With it being a small company, the insurance is more expensive than a larger company. Other than that, no cons whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    You can be a "big fish in a small pond" - if you want - or you can be completely under the radar. The most important thing to know about this company is that it is 100% virtual and therefore don't expect a lot of corporate hand holding or support. However, upper management is very accessible. The compensation is really good and the benefits are good - though expensive. Work-Life balance is pretty good - although see above - if you want to be a "big fish" you have to put in the extra time.

    Cons

    There is little in the way of developed management processes - they are working on this as they mature, but it is still a work in progress. There has been some increased pressure to grow the business from your position on site - something not everyone is comfortable doing. They don't keep a "bench" so if your contract ends, you better have a back up plan!
