    Pros

    They pay on time. OK if you need to get your foot in the Government Door and get your clearance, then start looking for something else.

    Cons

    The Program Manager is completely out of touch with IT and does not understand how to hire quality people because of his lack of IT knowledge. The fact of the matter is he vividly reflects the lack of talent identification and fitment analysis skills. The turn over rate is HIGH. This is because under qualified people are being hired to save money. They become frustrated and leave, or the worst ones stay and don't leave.

    Advice to Management

    The problems can be fixed by replacing the Program Manager. He wears a Teflon coat and places blame on people other than himself. He has even been reported to the JAG!

    Pros

    I guess it beats being unemployed...but the pay won;t be much better.

    Cons

    I worked for this company on a contract in the St Louis area. The PM is the worst I have ever experienced, disconnected from reality, and not at all equipped to handle a leadership role. Salary negotiation will be like getting a root canal,,,a painful experience that resulted in you wishing you didn't have to go through it. The PM acts as if your salary will be coming from their own account. DO NO expect to be paid what you are worth, or you will be disappointed. This company still uses the Vacation, and sick hour accrual system. BEWARE if you have sick hours, and you turn in a 2 week notice, you WILL NOT BE COMPENSATED for any sick time you have accrued, nor will you be able to use them, even though YOU earned them.

    Advice to Management

    This PM isn't qualified to run a shift at McDonald's. Practices the "It isn't my fault..." style of leadership.

    Pros

    Sharp coworkers. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Medical benefits are limited. Very little vacation. Government employment/contracting is unstable and lower paying than commercial employers.

    Advice to Management

    Don't offer medical plans with common procedures excluded.

  7. Very relaxed environment with very little structure

    Pros

    Low stress work environment. If you like to not be micromanaged then this is the place for you but then you also have to be OK with lots of down time and very little communication about what is going on.

    Cons

    Poor management direction and communication. Constant change of focus on projects with unclear talk assignments and little support from management. Lots of turnover of employees.
