    I have been working at Powertek full-time (More than a year)


    I really appreciate the amount of personal attention and direct engagement I have with management. I feel like they genuinely care about my career growth here and want to see me succeed. The perks are great; the two company events they host each year are really fun and have great prizes and the PMs and executives go out of their way to show appreciation for hard work.


    There is always a risk when you are employed with a contractor whose revenue is dependent on the Federal Government. So if the Government is shut down, your company is not allowed to send you to your project. The one difference with Powertek is that we were able to borrow against a leave bank where other employees and managers donated their unused PTO hours for individuals who would have to take LWOP.

    Advice to Management

    Keep spreading the kudos and positive customer feedback around to everyone. We work really hard to keep our customers happy and it's nice to know when we've done a good job! Thanks so much :)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Powertek (Rockville, MD) in March 2015.


    Recruiter responded to me about 10 minutes after I applied. I could not believe how quick response was! Initial screening with Recruiter, he was very nice and asked basic questions. Felt like he actually cared about what I was saying and knew enough about IT to not sound like your typical Recruiter. Set up interview next day and I was scheduled for same week
