    Pros

    Large company, ok benefits, and nothing else.

    Cons

    They do not pay their employees a fair wage. To get highly trained people you need to pay them or they will move to better companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To keep your customers happy and stop high turnover pay your highly technical employees a fair wage.

    I have been working at SRA International (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work is challenging. Generally a high level of technical content to work performed. Most of staff now work off-site or telecommute so offices are often empty.

    Cons

    Leave policies have been subject to multiple changes over the past five years. Some of the changes were based on a total lack of trust in the integrity of employees, such as the decision to not allow flexing holiday leave. That now has been changed back to allowing this to take place. Lumping annual and sick leave into PTO caused hardship. Older employees who had saved sick leave for contingencies suddenly found that all sick leave was taken away. It was not an issue of paying for sick leave: all understood that that was not expected. It was just the business of taking it awy and not grandfathering for older longer term employees. Capping PTO for older employees meant that they took an 8% paycut because they could no longer accumulate any leave until they got below the cap figure. Previously, old and new leave were in two separate pots.
    Work-life balance is OK. Marketing time for front line employees who best know customers is non-existent: if they want to do it, that comes out of hide: no charge number supplied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in touch with your staff: a long standing complaint where middle management prefers to spend time ingratiating themselves with upper management and not staying in touch with their on-site staff. Career paths are non-existent, and are just slogans put out by management. Recent rebranding effort was expensive and meant nothing to employees other than getting a new T-shirt. New slogan "Enduring values, Inspired Performance" a poor replacement for the motto that set SRA apart and guided its first three decades: "Honesty and Service."

    I worked at SRA International full-time

    Pros

    SRA was very hands off with my group, allowing us to focus on client work and not have to think about company issues. We never were burdened with proposal writing, etc.

    Cons

    The company was so hands off that there was no sense of company culture or morale. SRA tried to venture into a new type of service and had no strategy for that, even a year after they launched that service.

    Pros

    The benefits are fairly generous for example tuition assistance, transit reimbursement ($100/month tax free from SRA). People are professional and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    My manager seems to be overburdened by business development and asks me to assist in BD work even though I am a systems engineer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please add more dedicated resources for business development.

    I have been working at SRA International as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers with a large variety of industry backgrounds and a laid-back work environment.

    Cons

    No clear expectations made head-on, non-existent deadlines/unreasonable goals, zero rewards for work performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro-managing your employees. Set explicit and measurable goals and deadlines. Cross-train your employees so they are able to hold multiple responsibilities. Utilize your actual support staff to perform outreach duties in order to increase the productivity of contract staff and become more cost effective. Have some trust in your employees. Know when to lessen your direct supervision. As a new employee grows more confident in their role, reduce your direct supervision of them.
