    Pros

    Paycheck , Pension plan, 401 K plan, Two weeks vacation, and Two weeks sick leave.

    Cons

    Little advacenent in promotion, do not leave to Government job promotion, little or no yearly cost of living/pay raise, some unprofessional Project Managers at the headquarter/office who call employee home telephone to talk to a person in a degrading and screaming unprofessiinal communication style. Unacceptable and rude.

    Advice to Management

    Hire Professional Project Managers who can communicate in a calm and proactive tone of voice when they are interact with empolyees.

    Pros

    Great company to work for! I feel I can talk to my point of contacts one-on-one without feeling uncomfortable. They are understanding and really work with each employee to make them feel like a part of the family. Great with keeping us informed of any changes in payroll and benefits.

    Cons

    I had a disappointing experience working with one of their clients through a government contract with another agency. Before I work directly with The Ravens Group, would like to have the same kind of interaction with just one company not a joint company.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not do any contracting business with The National Cancer Institute. If you send any potential job candidates there, it will be a disappointing experience for both job applicant and The Ravens Group.

    Pros

    This small business will provide a broad range of contracts to work on of many different types exposing you to unique challenges.

    Cons

    A company culture dominated by an overbearing, Johnny-come-lately, retired three star general that can't see beyond his ego to trust his staff to do their job and bring new ideas to the company to spur growth.

    Advice to Management

    Stop stifling the workforce and undermining mid-level management.
