    Pros

    Interesting classified projects, good salaries and benefits

    Cons

    Academy Mafia...Cookie-cutter, white, conservative, Christian-Zealot environment. Co-workers were unfriendly, withheld pertinent information, tried to upstage other members of the team in Senior-Level meetings and openly touted their religious beliefs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your PM's under tighter control. Working in a SCIF, does not excuse inappropriate behavior.

    Pros

    TASC is a large company dealing with government contracts.
    Excellent values and treats employees as family
    Wages are applicable and standard to employee type of work and experience

    Cons

    Government contracts are only for a certain timeline

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TASC should be able to understand a little more about the type of work employees do and what is required of them when bidding on contracts that are new to their companies expertise. This could help win the contract and keep more coming in the future

    Former Employee - Computer Systems Analyst in San Antonio, TX

    I worked at TASC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Despite being tied to several Federal contracts, my company was one of the most open and LOYAL companies I have yet to work with. Our leadership broke their backs in order to ensure we were taken care of, and had no worries, finding positions for many of the people in order to keep them at TASC. Had I not had such an enormous career advancement with another company, I would have singularly chose TASC, Inc. to "grow roots" with!!

    Cons

    Not so much a con, but more of an informational comment: We were side-by-side with the customer at the sites we were working at, thus we were mandated to be on our "best" behavior (and appearance)! If you're looking for a more relaxed environment with shorts and t-shirts, they may not be you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. The management at this company ushered me into the government contracting world, and I had NO complaints!

    Pros

    open management, strong engineering and management skills. broad access to several growth gov markets. Good treating of people and their careers.

    Cons

    Several layers of hierarchy and long lead in adoption of new types of business. great for engineer and managers, a bit slow for people in between.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on translating your strategy to execution. The organization is too used to old way of doing business. Keep up the great work!

    I worked at TASC full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They have some of the best benefits. Not only do they offer college reimbursement, but they also offer to fund certifications courses that don't count against the college fund. They do try to keep people for a career.

    Cons

    There are some really great managers, and some not so good managers as with any company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs to ensure that middle management cares for their people which is the reason the company is successful.
