    I worked at Thomas and Herbert full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    CEO and COO are very committed to the success of the firm; Family-oriented values and environment; Some honest sharing with employees about challenges and issues; Competitive pay and benefits; Telework available for some contracts; Great co-workers and customers.

    Cons

    Little or no communication from upper management; Inadequate business development; Lack of consistent processes and procedures for HR, payroll and other administrative functions (including performance reviews).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prepare employees by communicating early and often about key changes- contractors know and share information before you do. Consider hiring a part-time or full-time proposal manager (or sharing one with a group of smaller firms) because proposal efforts are disorganized and unfocused. And please ensure all employees receive a detailed performance review at least once a year.

    Pros

    Good first impression, cordial recruiting

    Cons

    Dubious ethical standards, supporting contract without resources and audit quality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Withdraw from contract that would not pass client's audit. It puts the organization in legal bind. Very risky venture...

    I worked at Thomas and Herbert full-time

    Pros

    Thomas & Herbert employs great business leaders and really strives to make a difference in their service offering and program support to their clients. T&H consciously works to build a positive culture for their employees and benefits are very competitive. The company has good overall customer relationships and endeavors to maintain a positive atmosphere in which to work.

    Cons

    For its size, the company is spread across too many market sectors to be able to have focus that supports sustained growth. Environment is highly matrixed and project-centric so some employees that are looking to get lateral support may find shortfalls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think big, but do not forget the humility as a small business that grew you to where you are today. AND continue to invest in your people!

    I have been working at Thomas and Herbert full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Compensation is comparable to market average.

    Cons

    The workplace has seen a lot of turnover while i was there. The insecurity aspect of people being let go without announcements is very disconcerting. It is a very unpredictable without things being transparent and open about the state of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value those who have the skills and provide them the opportunities to prove and move up. There is no growth or promotion seen in the company overall which makes for low morale and incentive to work harder.

    Listen to your Management Team and allow them to help lead your organization
    Invest in the corporate staff so there are more resources available to achieve the myriad tasks
    Pare down your goals to achievable subsets; don't burn out your valuable staff

    T&H was an alright place to begin a career, but place more energy on winning contracts than implementing programs.
