    Pros

    Technical, challenging, interesting, and relevant work supporting the Federal Government's biggest agencies. Use what you actually studied in school.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Pros

    They give you lots of work and responsibility from day one. You don't feel like you aren't busy.

    Cons

    Worked 60 hours a week consecutively and deceptive about how the overtime bonus will play out. They tell you anything to get you in the door about how they will give you the ability to grow in any direction with any skillset you want, but that doesn't happen. They only want you to double down on the skills that you already have and don't alternate workers onto other projects to prevent them from being dissatisfied with their work - even though they claim that they will. Work you 60 hours a week and then say hey it's ok by taking you to happy hour and getting black out drunk. I gained 20 lb from a lack of work/life balance and the constant peer pressure from coworkers to drink. Also they give you laptops that weigh 20 lb. So working from home is a myth. You are just on call 24/7.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the cons. Stop framing them as a positive sell when you make them nothing but negative.

    I have been working at Summit Consulting full-time

    Pros

    A lot of growth potential. Junior staff get a lot greater responsibility than they do at other firms. There's also a lot of variety in the work, much more so than at other firms that do government contracting. Lots of smart, friendly staff. Lots of professional development opportunities offered, such as going to training, internal trainings, etc.

    Cons

    The management of overhead issues like IT and office space leaves something to be desired. Due to the major growth, sometimes projects are understaffed at first, and take a while to get staffed up to an appropriate level. That leads to some late nights, but that's limited.

    I have been working at Summit Consulting full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Throughout my tenure with Summit I have met some great people. Most of the employees are very down to earth and helpful. There is lots of flexibility with time off, which is beneficial to those with young children.

    Cons

    Only cons are that the culture of the company is changing due to recent economic trends. It was a much better place to work when I first started.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help promote young individuals who are furthering their education.

    Pros

    Summit is a great company, with a great leader who sets the tone for success. They truly care about their employees, and invest in their professional development in a way I haven't seen at other companies. I learned so much working there, and the company truly cares about doing its work well and looking out for the best interest of its employees.

    Cons

    Some of the senior employees do not have a work-life balance, and expect the same of their subordinates, but for the most part it is a wonderful place to work.
