    Pros

    Smallness of this company creates a feeling of family.
    Really smart engineers work here and share what they are working on.
    President is very approachable and listens.

    Cons

    Company was bought by CSC so benefits and office structure are changing.
    Most positons are on site, so you have limited interface with the office.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to employees on site more often.
    Have PMs keep teams informed of project scope as it changes.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Company attempts to protect benefits. Good pay for most jobs. Good training and IT expense benefit.

    Cons

    Company used to be small and oriented towards workers. As the company grew, the reality was that the family idea was just a veneer. Policies and procedures became more oriented toward office management than toward worker convenience. There seems to be an inner circle that get preferential treatment and if you are outside the circle, the company does not support you as well. Senior managers seem to be setting up the company for sale by trimming expenses and staff and concentrating on finances. No specific sick leave. Leave days calculated as 10% of hours worked. No benefit to longevity with company.

    Advice to Management

    Re-energize your staff and "walk the talk" not just go through the motions. Show the employees that they are the most important asset. Communication and transparency should be foremost in importance in such a small company.

    Pros

    Tenacity has some really smart people, they have decent opportunities, and mobility within the company is better than I've seen in other like sized companies. They really promote the "culture" and the fact that one has to be an active participant in order to have the best experience possible. There attempt to promote the culture was evident in programs like the "Voice of Tenacity" which was comprised of a group of non-management employees that discussed and vetted everything from internal policies, corporate swag, and benefit enhancements. Their findings were presented to the management team for adoption. I thought this was pretty nice.

    Cons

    Like a lot of smaller companies in the Defense and Intelligence Communities, broad based IT solutions and opportunities outside of Tenacity's supposed niche area of Security Engineering were less evident.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring good people. Keep the benefits offering better than the competition. Broaden technology offerings to include things like embedded programming and software development.

    Pros

    Benefits were good. I felt that I was paid fairly and that there was a wide selection of benefits. Company events were also good. The company provided paid parties and events for all and showed appreciation for workers.

    Cons

    Not everyone was treated fairly. The managers of the company did more for some employees, depending on who they were or how much they liked them. Growth opportunity was not there. I did not trust managers.

    Advice to Management

    Develop employees more. Keep practices fair and be honest.

    Pros

    They do offer nice employee health benefits - it is one of the better ones I have seen for a small size company. Unfortunately this is really the only good thing that they have to offer.

    Cons

    Company is very "clicky". If you are not with the "in crowd" there is no job security. Overall, the company is not a fair and not an honest employer. They have questionable actions and ethics.
