    I have been working at Tapestry Solutions full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Employees are friendly and nice to work with. If you are hard-working and skilled, you can advance. You can get a lot of great experience and learn valuable skills if you are driven. The benefit package is great and the office is in a good location. This is a great opportunity for students to start out with.

    Cons

    Salaries are not very good compared to other companies in the area. The company is bureaucratic, and not very innovative. Raises are not easy to come by and they are not individualized. There is not a lot of incentive for employees to work their hardest, because you won't get rewarded or disciplined either way.

    I worked at Tapestry Solutions

    Pros

    Allows one to understand the complexities of BD. In addition, if you want to understand government contracting, you really get to learn the in's and out's.

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucracy. Does not allow the freedom of making independent decisions without much consulting. A little too much military bureaucracy instilled in the culture there.

    Pros

    Good pay, flexible hours, interesting work, good people

    Cons

    Use some outdated tools. In process of updating from visual c++ and vb6 to .NET. Need a bit more training to make sure everyone is on the same level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up what you're doing.

    Pros

    Fun projects, smart people, flexible work environment.

    Cons

    The old engineer-centric culture under FSG in the Midwest is being subverted into a Dilbertesque parody of itself. If you can keep HR and upper management off your back this can still be a great place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good people make a good company. You are driving away talent and inspiring the rest of us to insipid performance due to generally treating your "greatest resource" as just that: another resource to be exploited.

    Intriguing before the company was bought by Boeing.

    I worked at Tapestry Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great group of people who try and comply with the wants of management.

    Cons

    The purchase of the company by Boeing turned it into a split entity. Not having the full support or access to much of what Boeing has as a company, Tapestry employees are left to suffer the whims of a big company and many people are working in fear of the loss of their livelihood.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get control of your ship.

    Pros

    Employees are great, dedicated, and willing to help each other. The company is well run. It is growing and there are opportunities in many different locations worldwide.

    Cons

    Depending on the position and the contract that you support, the travel can be frequent. Some field support personnel will travel well over 50% of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you are doing. Expand the customer base beyond the military.
