    I worked at Adams Communications & Engineering Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workerw were friendly and the company did have a yearly picinic that was enjoyable. Usually didn't have to share desks with other workers and we were provided with a break room.

    Cons

    Management was not approachable and opportunity to train was nonexistant. You learned and you went while asking co-workers how to do things.

    Advice to Management

    Implement an open door policy for employess to access management and allow training for new hires. Considering that this company is a contract company, training is key since there in no job title that could ready you for the work you would be doing.

    I worked at Adams Communications & Engineering Technology (More than a year)

    Pros

    I cannot think of any Pros for this company. Just a typical beltway bandit using hard working people to make sick money for a few entitled elite insiders.

    Cons

    Everything. If you desire job security or the most basic level of or appreciation for your hard work, then steer clear of these people.

    Advice to Management

    One day it will all come crashing down on you, so you might want too learn how to treat employees with dignity and respect.

    Pros

    Nice people, nice location and office space

    Cons

    Company did not seem to be handling the transition from being a small company (from a gov't contracting perspective) to a large one. Lacked organic capability to develop technical solutions for bids and relied largely on partners of widely varying and often unknown quality.

    Advice to Management

    Narrow your focus, hire some tech expertise to support that focus, identify and truly partner with a smaller set of companies to support the narrowed focus. Don't waste time on bids outside that focus.

    the why they were with the help like all the money we payed for our benefits every check.

    Advice to Management

    lower the pay for family benefits and keep the people that make the different.
