    Pros

    The company truly cares about its employees. They listen to employee concerns and take measures to improve at all levels. The executive team works hard to make employees at all levels have opportunities to grow. They are transparent, which is huge in a federal contracting company which always has some level of uncertainty. The culture starts with professional teamwork and positivity at all levels. Employees don't gossip or point fingers. As a result, the atmosphere is generally fun and lighthearted with events like ping pong tournaments, board game nights, professional sports outings, and company picnics. The founders highly value volunteerism and community service and provide time off for volunteering.

    Cons

    At times, the company does not value input from people speaking about a topic outside their formal job. For example, if a software developer gives really good input regarding a proposal, it often gets dismissed because the software developer isn't a proposal writer. Or if a business analyst gives really helpful input about technical design, it gets dismissed because they aren't engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to the culture. Continue listening to the employees and continue putting them first. The co-founders have built a very special company and as it grows, it's easy to lose sight of what makes it great in the first place.
