    Pros

    Paycheck every two weeks. There is a 20 word minimum but paycheck is one word. I should have typed paycheck 20 times.

    Cons

    Disorganized, lack common best pratices, if your position is hard to fill you will not be considered for others projects. Employees pay for HR mistake (literally you will see deductions). More than willing to let you work late without overtime. Must use PTO if more that 10 minutes late even if you stayed over 8 andnor over 40 the day before (some teams allowed to leave early but not all. Ask about weekends holidays and overtime during your INTERVIEW and make sure it is documented in YOUR OFFER LETTER. You may never see corporate employees like HR or Security team but they are reachable by help desk ticket. Be prepared for a dead end but it's a paycheck. Lots of outdated information in handbooks and intranet portal.

    Don't expect too much and you will be fine. Turnover is high..moral is low..pay is average if you know your worth before submitting your application.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to employees. They know what is wrong compared to other contractors. Their feedback will help prepare the company for bigger and better contracting companies winning contracts and hiring highly qualified candidates.

    Pros

    Initially I started out with them when they were 8a, and helped remain loyal and work towards growing the company. However, after my 13th Anniversary, I saw a shift in corporate organizational behavior. It used to be about keeping the employees happy so in turn the customer/client would be happy, but $$ became the new focus. Easier to cut labor then to cut assets. They allowed for autonomous work and self-monitoring.

    Cons

    No loyalty after so many years. No recognition of longevity, attendance, or service. Poor salary increases and not as competitive benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your long-term employees. Don't underbid contracts just so you can win or keep them.

  6. Very difficult to get anything done or progress in your career.

    Pros

    If you want coast and don't care about career growth or accomplishments, you will like it here.
    Supportive of training which is unusual for a contracting firm.

    Cons

    State Dept in Charleston is a difficult place to get decisions made. Contractors/Consultants are not given clear direction, timelines, requirements, or commitments.
    STG culture is political, hierarchical, reactive, and disorganized.
    Difficult to make contributions or have any career growth.
    Arbitrary and strong micro-managing is rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a "safe" environment for people to succeed. Don't reward difficult people and demoralize your staff.

    Direct line to senior management for decisionmaking

    Pros

    Good job out of college to get started and gain experience; decent pay given the economy and good work/life balance

    Cons

    Benefits could have been better; need more opportunities to develop new skills in different areas; more support from the head office to develop/retain junior talent

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time trying to find younger talent and develop them to encourage them to stay/move up; also better health benefits and more 401k support would bring better people into the company
