    I worked at Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent company to work for with superior senior staff and HR representation.

    Cons

    None. I just wish the government didn't cut the funding for the program I was working on and that SGT had a larger presence in CA otherwise I would still be working there. They arte a very good company to work for with some very personable Sr representation, including the CEO and CFO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Good company, had no complaints

    I worked at Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies

    Pros

    I worked for multiple government contractors and SGT was good. Pretty standard company to work for, I never had any complaints. Had some good bosses, decent benefits, decent pay, they just ask you get the work done and keep the customer happy.

    Cons

    My only complaints were noisy people in the cubicles near me, and you do feel a bit like just another person in a cubicle, depending on what team you work with. But if you're deciding whether to work there or not, I'd recommend it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly no real advice, just keep things going.

    I worked at Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits packages, smart business choices. The company does a good job of communicating often with its employees. The managers were very supportive. My manager went to bat for me multiple times, especially when it came to performance reviews and pay increases.
    I came to SGT through the acquisition of another company. Both sides made the transition seemless, and I have been very satisified with the result.

    Cons

    Contracting is a tough business. When your contract ends and there aren't a lot of prospects out there, there's not much the company can do. However, they will do their best to find you something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep appreciating your employees. That goes a long way.

    I have been working at Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Brilliant management and the best place to climb the ladder of your career. The company supports, enables and promotes your success and has many programs which pay for your training, skill transfer, and certifications. Not to mention great college tuition benefits.

    Cons

    None as much as I can tell if anything it would be not many tools available to turn in good ideas to improve the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing because if it's not broke don't fix it and stay a private company.

    Pros

    smaller organization that seems to genuinely care about their employees. Provides good motivation for employees to succeed and fosters a collegial atmosphere.

    Cons

    opportunities may be more limited than those at larger organizations, but I'd gladly trade opportunity for job satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue to value the employees, and we'll continue to provide the best support that we can!

    Meh. Just another company contracted at EROS.

    I have been working at Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Meh. Do what they need to do to maintain the contract. Mostly good people who work at EROS, but the people who work at EROS are largely the same regardless of which company wins the contract.

    Cons

    Invests little in employees, does not support industry experts in it's ranks. Lacks vision or leadership in business process or technical engineering.

    I have been working at Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Traditional work environment, but with a reasonably flexible work schedule.
    - Very supportive work environment.
    - Project contributions are recognized and reasonably rewarded.

    Cons

    - PTO is not the greatest.
    - Benefits package could be better, perhaps on par with some of the benefits offered by other bay-area companies.
    - Reimbursement processing could be quicker and electronic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Non salary benefits (such as support in seeking housing, car purchase, public transportation reimbursement, etc.) would go a long way in enhancing the already good perception of the organization.
