I worked at TASC full-time (More than 10 years)
TASC had a 45 year old brand name recognized in the IC and DoD as a provider of high quality staff and solutions. Not sure why leadership felt that being acquired by a 2 year old brand name, Engility, was a good idea, but overhead costs have dropped as a result of the increase in company size. A large number of outstanding leaders have left the company and wages for the average employee (not the senior leadership) have been being driven down by replacing costly talent with cheaper, newer entrants into the job market. This may be what government agencies want.... less experience with lower prices. The approach may allow Engility to be successful. Great for the Investment companies that own it, but not so good for customers (lower quality) or employees (lower wages and benefits).
Even before the acquisition by Engility, TASC changed cultures from being a reputable provider of high quality staff and solutions to being part of the beltway herd of LPTA providers. Low Price Technically Acceptable may be what the government wants right now, but you get what you pay for.
Advice to Management
Find a way to differentiate Engility from the rest of the pack of LPTA providers and return to making Engility a great place to work.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TASC (Chantilly, VA).
The recruiter will meet you at the front desk, break the ice, and take you to an interview room. He'll sit down, discuss basic benefits of TASC, then ask if you have any questions. If not, he'll open the door and let the interviewers in. Usually consists of 2-3 folk, usually not the hiring manager. They will tag-team you with questions, but not the standard BS questions you find online. They describe the job at some point, and usually as clarifying questions to see if your resume entries fulfill their needs. Each person was allocated about 30 mins, so for a 2 person interview expect an hour.
