I have been working at Xcelerate Solutions full-time (More than a year)
Xcelerate is a purpose-driven, client- focused, and family-oriented organization that demonstrates a commitment to excellence.
Purpose-Driven: The company was founded on September 11, 2009, with a mission centered on Making America Safer by providing support services to the Government that enhance the security of the personnel, physical, and cyber infrastructure. Each program that Xcelerate supports contributes to this mission and Xcelerate focuses on finding employees who are passionate about serving.
Client-Focused: In each client engagement, Xcelerate brings to bear thought leaders who are dedicated to serving their clients’ needs. With more than 200+ projects served, Xcelerate has demonstrated a commitment to getting the job done, taking on their clients’ missions as their own.
Family-Oriented: They take care of their employees, recognizing stellar performance by providing opportunities for bonuses, MVP awards, company events, and other incentives. The organization is one of the most transparent and welcoming places I have had the opportunity to work. I was a referral to the organization and was immediately impressed from the first interview and throughout onboarding with the company. The family feel and atmosphere starts at the top with Mark Drever (CEO), who focuses on leading an organization that stresses collaboration and is committed to providing support to their employees in any way they can. In addition to taking care of their employees, they are deeply supportive of the local community. The organization’s volunteer organization is led by a great team of energetic and passionate individuals that work with a number of non-profit organizations in the area. Through and through, this is a unique organization that I have been lucky enough to have a chance to work for and build a career with.
Not many. There are challenges within any organization, especially with Federal Consulting firms but Xcelerate’s Leadership Team provides the guidance and support to get past these barriers
Advice to Management
Continue the great work and investing in your people. The culture you have built is what sets you apart from the competition.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Xcelerate Solutions (McLean, VA) in November 2016.
Great experience - great people, very polite, giving all details t make an informed decision, while making a comprehensive evaluation. They usually have their recruiter who is a nice lady and clearly experienced PR person, and one or more people who are the experts in the area they want to hire. they go over a lot of topics, exploit both your interests, and show their needs, so that they can find best matches for current projects and future ones. They also organize interviews offsite and are very supportive and good at follow-up with their sponsors, and at giving great feedback.
