    I have been working at ActioNet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are good and the contracts are with great government agencies providing exposure to many opportunities. Management always asking if we need anything to do a better job. Seems very supportive.

    Cons

    Its a contracting company so we are all on site all the time which isn't really a con but I have to say something.

    Advice to Management

    Have some time away from client site to relationship build. Maybe company retreats? Otherwise you guys are doing great.

    I have been working at ActioNet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People work hard and enjoy good with company sponsored activities like picnics and other things
    good learning curve on the job with a lot of talented people to guide you

    Cons

    1) management shows partiality on some employees only. Whoever gets hired and gets fired is as per those few group of ladies and nothing goes beyond them.
    2) micromanagement by the higher management. You cannot even write an email or document without review

    Advice to Management

    Need to allow more diversity at the upper management and stop being partial to some employees only. This ongoing culture will harm the company in the long run.

    I worked at ActioNet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I really appreciated the relaxed environment and the option to telework. Christmas parties were nice as well. The owner of the company treats her employees well. The medical and dental benefits were great and priced well. I also appreciated the location and the travel reimbursement.

    Cons

    Did not have much job security and upper management did not really keep employees in the loop as far was the status of contract renewals are concerned. I left because I feared our contract would not win the recompete.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your staff. If you don't think you will win the new contract work with staff to have other options for work. Some of us have families to support and cannot risk being unemployed because you have a hunch you might win the recompete.
