    Advice to Management

    Task is a corporation that is great to work for. They management team is composed of highly professional people, their work options enable a wide diversity of job opportunities, the periodic reviews are generally well done and the pay is good. My advice to Management: Keep doing what you have been doing!!

    Pros

    TASC has many great contracts to support with a wide range of customers. The workforce is superior and made up of people with diverse skills.

    Cons

    There are many benefit changes due to company restructuring. Also, some of the office spaces could be updated.

    Pros

    When I joined the company after the spin off from NG there was high hopes for future growth. However the company maintained the processes and culture of the NG behemoth. They were a mid-size beltway contractor and the benefits and pay were adequate. The former mgmt was nice and responsive.

    The cafeteria was nice.

    Cons

    By the time I left the company been through several rounds of layoffs, the executive management was completely gutted and spending on people and workplace fell through the floor. Perhaps it was necessary due to the repeated contract losses suffered. Instead of rallying the troops to press forward the company cut positions, cut pay, and slashed benefits. The remaining management was entirely unfit for duty. I was not surprised to hear they were bought out by a larger firm. I cannot speak for the new owner but as for TASC itself I would avoid like the plague until they have documented performance.

    Things to expect
    -Low pay
    -Abysmal benefits
    -Lackluster management
    -No vision
    -No drive

    Advice to Management

    To the new owners, cut all the former management and invest in the few dedicated worker bees who stuck around out of loyalty.

    Pros

    No Pro's left...the company has deteriorated to a point where it's become who can get out fastest.

    Cons

    I have watched management eat up, what little profits there are, with high salaries and bonuses for the executives, while the employee's have not had any raises in more than 3 years and, even though annual bonuses are "supposed" to happen, they don't (at least not for anyone below Director level (Director and above get their bonuses). Benefits have been cut to the point that you're almost better off going through "Affordable Health Care" program. TASC doesn't understand their customers, don't meet the customer needs, and certainly don't meet the employee's needs. TASC has some seriously talented employee's...but many are RIF'd because they make too much money (you get what you pay for dude's), or they leave for other employment because they are fed up with the BS. I understand the economy, and government cut backs...but the decisions that upper Management at TASC is making are truly BAD, and have resulted in the loss of some outstanding employee's and some seriously important government contracts.

    Advice to Management

    None...they won't listen anyway. In the 5 years since it's separation from Northrop Grumman, they have had extremely talented people give them advice...they don't take it...so I'll give none here...it's not like they care, or even read these boards anyhow!

    Pros

    Very little micromanagement. Coworkers are a great team!

    Cons

    Survival of the fittest (old boys club more like it) and now that Engility acquired one of the VP tells us "Do less with less!!"


  9. Excellent company to work for.

    Pros

    My colleagues at TASC were very talented individuals. They understood their business area and how to bring value-added to projects and contracts.

    Cons

    TASC's leadership did not understand that the business model under which the company had become successful had changed. TASC became very successful by winning large SE contracts. With the fiscal crisis in Federal spending and the political gridlock in Washington, what they had done previously to succeed was no longer valid. Senior leadership was unable to see this and, subsequently, TASC was sold to Engility.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership of TASC is still in-place at Engility after the acquisition. They'll need to assess/re-assess the strategic direction of the company.
