ProsImmediate access to senior management. For a small company, benefits package is structured extremely well. Direction company is headed is sometimes hard to discern.

ConsStrictly an IT company. Unsure of growth opportunities and expansion into new lines. Employees need to see more involvement from company leadership with local operations.

Needs some improvements, but not too bad.

I worked at TRI-COR for more than 3 years

ProsThe contract I was working on had been secured by TRI-COR for many years, so they do a great job retaining contracts that they win. The people I worked with were good, and most were quite friendly.

ConsI think the total compensation package could have been better. Insurance was too expensive and it had a small provider network. The previous company I had worked for was much smaller and had better benefits.

There were many times where our contract would just get extended 6 months at a time, and it made things stressful at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo some homework and find out what your employees are looking for in a long-term position. Get rid of the numerous executive positions for such a small company, and pay your employees more money. You're billing the government at 3 - 4 times what your employees are making, and they're aware of that. More money doesn't always retain employees, but it certainly can help. Stop charging so much overhead on hardware/software purchases. You're eating up too much of the budget by doing so, and it effects the funds available to purchase the proper hardware and software to support the mission.

A lot of talk, Promises, No Action. No Trust. HQ fails the Operations.

HQ Operations Executive and Human Resources (Current Employee)
Lanham, MD

I have been working at TRI-COR full-time for more than 3 years

ProsExcellent O'Fallon Team! In many respects, O'Fallon is TRI-COR. The O'Fallon leadership team serves the primary customer relationship, and they have great customer focused leadership, take care of their people with quality management skills, they are professional, engaged, and coach employee performance to gain better performance and engagement in service to the company and the customer. O'Fallon consistently delivers excellent quality serivce in support of the mission, on-time and on budget - often in spite of the hurdles and obstacles created by the Lanham MD HQ.

Cons30 year lifestyle company with unbalanced management style, expectations of mistrust. Drive to innovate and become forward thinking, best-practice is overwhelmed with rules based, focus on expectation that employees will not do the right thing. Top leadership at HQ is arbitrary and influenced by heresay/gossip. Tons of policies, documentation,rules - no business processes empowering succcess. HQ operation acts as an authority over productive independent client facing operations with little value add. History demonstrates continued repeating hire and replace leadership, hire and replace BD, no sustained growth and maturity. The HQ leadership team is provincial to Lanham, lacks professionalism, gossips, denegrates peers/direct reports, lies and bad behavior is tolerated if favored, while effective professionals are discarded, and proactive coaching to help promote growth and excellence is avoided at all cost. "People are people. You can't change them."

Advice to Senior ManagementHire in the shadow of the leader and you will continue to maintain a cohesive team at HQ.

Never ending turnovers

I worked at TRI-COR full-time for more than a year

ProsSmall and antiquated in their hiring and business development. lack vision and inspiration

ConsManagement is unfocused, mercurial, and uncaring. If you want a promotion you need to leave first.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your people better. get rid of your stupid employee handbook from the 1950s and come into the 21st century.
