Current Employee - Target Analyst Reporter Level III

I have been working at SAIC full-time

Pros

Good pay, full benefits, PTO, tuition reimbursement, team building, supports growth and advancement, enables individual success

Cons

May not be prime on the contract you want, which can slow down job placement efforts. Additional training and learning is on your own time/unpaid.

Current Employee - Customer Success Manager

I have been working at Applied Research Works full-time

Pros

I really loved how welcoming and supportive everyone is. I have grown so much since I started—the CTO is very encouraging, supportive, and a fantastic role model. I feel like everyone has my back. I... feel comfortable and supported from my managers. I really enjoy working at a place where you can see the impact you’re making. I don’t feel like a pawn or number. I really love it here.

Cons

It’s a big workload. You need to know how to manage a lot of tasks, set up healthy habits to step away from your computer (walks, stretch break, etc), know when to say ‘no’ to additional work (&... be vocal about when you need help)—be efficient with your time and thoughtful about scheduling and you’ll do well. (Also learning ClickUp before would help!)
