    I worked at SOSi full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Small to medium sized company (Goldilocks zone) that is mover in the government contracting industry. Management is concerned with providing a friendly and stable work environment to all. Benefits are on par with industry. If you show your value you will be promoted. Work- Life balance is possible.

    Cons

    Company is still reconciling foundation business with the newer vision of IT and cyber. Yearly employee performance and evaluation process and tools are subpar. Government contracting often leads to projects with a high amount of scope creep and employees, without well defined goals, tend to get burned out.

    Advice to Management

    Lead from out front and take time to develop/ train middle managers in each division. Implement effective tools for yearly evaluations. HR needs to be "right sized" for the amount of employees it services.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SOSi.

    Interview

    Wow, I have never talked to such a stuck up recruiter before in my life. She was so condescending in every conceivable way possible. She made it seemed like she was doing me a service for even talking to her about this opportunity. She kept downplaying all the comments I was saying even though I was answering her questions. Every time I talked, it seems like she was chewing on a gum so loud that it was bothersome. Holy cow guys.
