I worked at UNICOM Government full-time
Family oriented environment in and amongst the employees. Business systems are superior to that of other companies in the same industry.
Benefits package well below that of other companies in the same industry.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at UNICOM Government (Chantilly, VA).
I was a referral. I interviewed with the recruiter over the phone, 2 other PMs in person and met my hiring manager 1-1 as well. I also interviewed with a Director and spoke briefly to a VP, althought I wouldn't consider that meeting an "interview." I interviewed contingent upon them winning certain projects that had been bid so I was interviewed several months before my hire date, but that was expected and explained up front. The panel interview seemed like it was more to see if I was a cultural fit for the team than a test of my skills and I appreciate that having the right fit is important for the team. The recruiting team at the time was fantastic and very good about keeping in touch. The onboarding process was great as well.
They matched my base salary at my previous large systems integrator employer through a combination of base and bonuses. The base was much lower than the larger company, but over the years promotions have been easier to come by and my salary is back to where it would be if I had stayed with the bigger company. Bonuses are all but non-existent now though.
