    Pros

    Favoritism hits an ALL time high is Human Resources

    Cons

    Incompetent Team so you don't really need to know your job to work in the HR department.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people just because you like them. HR is the worst department ever. It's starting to look very racist with all the blonde hair and blue eyes as part of the cult called the HR Leadership Team. Unbelievable! How can you advise managers when HR does not practice what they preach!

    I worked at ASRC Federal Holding Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to exploit your hard work and knowledge. Unfairness is great to go to work with. Immaturity is embraced by project managers.

    Cons

    Biased treatment to H-1B Visa holders since ASRC pays for their employment status. Horrible communication with company for contract solutions. Project managers are poorly trained, no vision, lack leadership, and are not knowledgeable in areas of speciality contracts. No growth potential, only exploitation.

    Advice to Management

    Train PMPs better other than online courses.

    I have been working at ASRC Federal Holding Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good top down communications about company growth strategies.
    Company culture and history well communicated.
    Company invests in the program managers and develops leadership skills.
    Management approach to flexible work schedules and work-life balance very positive.
    Team is referred to as and treated as family.
    Best 401K around - like having an annual bonus.
    Community involvement and volunteerism encouraged.
    Client-facing commitment is respected - not too much extra corporate commitment required like some other big consulting firms.
    Jobs last for the contract - some up to five years.
    Low turnover.

    Cons

    Mission Drive facility, where the contractors (money makers) work is depressing. Corporate HQ where the overhead folks work is gorgeous. Would be much nicer to have comparable work atmospheres.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for getting better and better every year. The management development and communications have really improved. Also love the holiday party...let's have one every year!
