    I worked at UNICOM Government (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company can give you a lot of exposure to interesting facets of business, especially if you're interested ni mergers and acquisitions. The pay is decent for an entry- level role.

    Cons

    The CEO is very hard-working but micro manages to the point that you wonder why he hires people to fill any of the other executive roles. I would equate the growth path to climbing a cliff (it is possible, but you will need to teach yourself everything). Expect no training in the business side of he company.

    Advice to Management

    There definitely needs to be a better training program that equips the interns to start as full-time employees. Then there should be a more clear path for advancement within the company, so that we don't resort to Google to try and cater to the CEO's ever changing demands.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at UNICOM Government (Chantilly, VA).

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • There were really no unexpected questions. There were several behavioral questions though. "Tell me about a project you've managed that failed and what you did..."   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    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.
