    They paid well and gave employees the option to move up easily although their management needed some work on west.

    Network Engineer (Former Employee) China Lake, CA

    ProsWas able to move up easily within the company and they paid very well. Pretty good health benefits as well.

    ConsHad a very lame 401k plan (only matched 50% of a maximum 4%, so 2% total match). The had several management issues understanding CA law as they are mainly an East coast company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn the laws on the west coast (especially for CA as it always has 'particular' guidelines). Improve your 401k plans for employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Terrible.

    IT Consultant (Former Employee) Ridgecrest, CA

    ProsI enjoyed meeting some of the people that worked for the company--good people but they got lost in the storm of poor management.

    ConsManagement did not even remotely understand the business or the needs of the customer. They tried to manage from across the country, and it was rare that we got to interact with them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great motivated company that values their employees.

    Computer Specialist (Current Employee) Charleston, SC

    ProsThe MIL Corporation really cares about their people and tries hard to keep employees happy and growing in their careers. Government contracting can be frustrating and the MIL mgmt. team does a great job buffering their employees from this client-created frustration. Any negative reviews for this organization in Charleston are non-factual. MIL has ok health benefits but great perks for training and personal development.

    ConsThere are some limitations in the efficiency of how the corporate office (MD) disseminates policy to field offices, like Charleston. Health benefits could be more competitive for the industry but they are still pretty good.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider subsidizing health benefits to be more competitive. Work on facilitating ideas and feedback from lower levels of the organization.

    Executive

    Vice President (Current Employee) Lexington Park, MD

    ProsCMM level 2 with some business processes defined corporately.

    ConsPolitical corporate control by lack of executive and management communications. Stakeholder and client decisions limited by communication lapses.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring the theoretical thinkers and put energy into performance of staff and client solutions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No advancement, no sense of fulfillment, terrible management

    Systems Analyst (Former Employee) Charleston, SC

    ProsFlexible hours, decent pay for the area

    ConsThere are no opportunities to advance with this company. You will be placed in a desk, left there with no training and handed menial busy work so that they can bill the government. Management is often inexperienced and unprofessional.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRevamp your front line managers. Do not hire people for jobs they aren't qualified for. Do not hire people for jobs that don't have enough work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No advancement opportunity, poor communication, and disorganized leadership but benefits all right

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Charleston, SC

    ProsReasonable hours and not much overtime expected because of contract. Benefits are standard, but nothing above and beyond what other companies offer. They seem to hire pretty good employees overall, but then they don't seem to know what to do with them after they have them. Look for a long established team not one of the ones only in place for a few years.

    ConsBig communication problems dependent on what team you are on. Check carefully before accepting position. Extremely high turnover on certain teams with employees jumping ship. If you have a bad or unclear vibe from the beginning, your gut is probably right. When it comes down to it, individual manager ethics are very questionable and it will be every man for himself. Not a good situation when working in sensitive areas of government. Pay is not anything to write home about either.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore care on who is being placed in senior management. Good communication, leadership and clear direction are more important than talking a good game...especially when the bottom is falling out.

    Very Family orinted and cares for their employees

    Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsCares for employees, have went above and beyond to make sure i received information. They were very direct and up front with me during the intial recruiting process and are even now after I am hired and working still maintaining their homely charm. Very family oriented

    ConsBecause the company is small the Benefits are not too good.. Not bad, but not good either. Holidays and paid vacations are pretty standard.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
