    I worked at Salient Federal Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Some processes and support, decent benefits, flexible

    Cons

    Major lack of communication between management and subordinates. Inconsistent management and lack of respect for employees. Management does NOT follow their own rules and values.

    If you have to keep talking about how smart & great you are....you're not

    Pros

    This company has Good pays but still has to go off government rates, there is no increase for overtime. It would be better if they they at least offered bonuses but not at this time.

    Cons

    The jobs are in pretty narrow field so there no room for upward mobility. If a company is growing then why don't they have more opportunities for growth for their employees.

    It is what it is a mid size defense contractor- owned and operated by a private equity firm.

    Pros

    Nice offices, decent compensation

    Cons

    No training or employee development, employees are nothing more than numbers, Human Resources is out of touch and incompetent. The company exists simply to acquire other companies and add to headcount with an end goal of being absorbed by an even larger company. It is what it is a mid size defense contractor- owned and operated by a private equity firm hoping to line Senior managements pockets with tax payer dollars.

    Advice to Management

    Management is completely separate from the company.

    I worked at Salient Federal Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management is fantastic, they really want to help you succeed. Coworkers are very intelligent and hard working. benefits package is very diverse so you can really get as much out of it as you want. I was very impressed when i enrolled this year.

    Cons

    Clients vary so depending on what contract you are on you may have a client you are less than fond of. If you start in the fall it is tough to enjoy the holiday season because you need to accrue vacation. Not the end of the world but still a bummer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
