    I have been working at UNICOM Government

    Pros

    Scope to learn new things

    Cons

    Benefits are not so great

    Former Employee - Senior Business Analyst in Chantilly, VA

    I worked at UNICOM Government full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The commute is convenient, as they are close to Dulles Airport, so driving from MD, DC or parts of Northern VA are a "reverse commute" against traffic coming to DC. Great benefits, 401k is OK, training and certifications as needed. Diversified also.

    Cons

    Salary reviews were scheduled, but reflected the state of the company, industry and market. For key areas, the compensation was fair, but on the low side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There was a complete change of senior staff/execs every 2 - 3 years as failures to deliver or meet corporate goals seemed to lead to quick radical changes, not focused leadership.

    I have been working at UNICOM Government full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good people, pay is reasonable, benefits are reasonable, work load is manageable

    Cons

    Leadership has been decimated by attrition. We have good people thrown into roles they were not meant to have, and no vision or goals coming down from the top to guide us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No sense in giving advice, it would not be heard by the people who need to hear it. The people who would hear it are doing the best they can with the authority they have to make things happen.

    I worked at UNICOM Government full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Relationships and the people I worked with

    Cons

    Poor executive mngt; lots of golden parachutes for undeserving and underperforming leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GTSI doesn't exist anymore and Unicom is a microcosm of what GTSI used to be. Lots of institutional knowledge walked out the door in past few years.

    Also, business model of "value added reseller" just doesn't work. Bundling "services" around product sales was a recipe for disaster and huge liability for GTSI for years.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Herndon, VA

    I worked at UNICOM Government full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people were great. They were like family and I feel like I grew up with that company. I look fondly at my years there.

    Cons

    There wasn't a sense of making sure that upper middle management was on board with the vision the executive leadership was planning and coaching with the lower middle management and the managers to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tweak the Human Capital approach. There was too much cross talk among what appeared to be a lot of bureaucracy.
