    I worked at ARMA full-time

    Pros

    I get paid enough to pay my bills, not much else

    Cons

    Hard work for NO pay, non-negotiable pay
    management has no clue what the workers actually do
    Hires workers who are not qualified
    Awful hours with no extra compensation for night/weekends/holidays
    No room for promotion

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring incompetent people with no experience and cherish the workers who know the job. Stop telling workers they are replaceable and that if they don't like decisions they can go work somewhere else.

    I have been working at ARMA full-time

    Pros

    The Mission is important and the need urgent.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations. If you have a heart attack and you need a doctor, a podiatrist cannot fix your heart.

    I have been working at ARMA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting projects to work on.
    Easy to move between projects
    Excellent on-site training provided

    Cons

    Since being acquired by GD the benefits have gone down
    Hard to get promoted

    Advice to Management

    Allow teams to at least stay the same size. Current team has lost two people, but the workload is still the same.

    I have been working at ARMA full-time

    Pros

    Best about hiring/promoting from within
    Management listens and acts on concerns
    I actually receive bonuses from this company

    Cons

    Some non-technical managers micromanage tier 2/3 engineers/admins
    Acquisition by GDIT has added bureaucracy to all levels of employee welfare, training, benefits, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Remove non-technical people from areas where technical expertise is needed/required.

    I have been working at ARMA full-time

    Pros

    ARMA had a great culture focusing on the SOF Warrior and their mission. People focused, mission focused...

    Cons

    ...and then they were bought by GDIT. Now it's money, butts in seats, and money...did I say money?

    Advice to Management

    REALLY leave ARMA alone to do what it used to do...don't lie and say you are going to do it.

    There really isn't a specific advantage working for them over other companies.
