    I worked at Advancia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Advancia had a relaxed environment that helped relieve a lot of stress. If I needed to run to the bank, had a doctor's appointment, or run an errand I could do so without trying to cram everything into my lunch hour or taking time off. Everyone from the upper levels of corporate management to contract employees were always extremely nice and helpful with anything I needed. When a contract ended they always did everything they could to retain their employees and put them to work on any new contracts that came up which I thought was awesome. They cared a lot about their employees and helped me a lot with my professional career.

    Cons

    On a few occasions in my down time I got pulled into doing things that weren't really in my job description. I didn't really mind it, but it's the only real con I can think of.

    Great team who makes you feel like you are a part of a family who cares for you. Always striving to provide the tools and resources needed for you to be successful in your position.

    Hire more personnel like Jennifer Looper. She has been a great supervisor that cares about her employees.

    It is not a reliable job because the government could terminate the contract at anytime.

    Hire the best people

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

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, small organization, low bureaucracy.

    Cons

    They continuously lay (read fire) people off with not even an hour of warning. It could be due to performance or budget, they won't say. Awful business practice.

    Advice to Management

    Build a better company by managing and mentoring your employees. No one wants to work for a company and they never know if they will have a job the next day.

    I worked at Advancia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small Company, loose office structure

    Cons

    Company President and other leadership had no clue what they were doing, filled their pockets at the expense of hard working contract staff. They would then let you know how beneath them you are, do yourself a favor and find a more reputable company to work for. This company was loosing all their federal contracts and winning few beginning in 2012 and the trend has not changed.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your high horse and admit you can not succeed without the staff around you.

    Pros

    Appropriate authority and supervision given to perform job functions efficiently. In other words, no micromanagement is awesome! Supported me in achieving PMP certification.

    Cons

    Remote offices. No heavy interaction with PMO. Minimal interaction with HQ.

    I worked at Advancia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible, but failed to include satellite locations into business planning; Holiday planning; No Bonuses either.

    Cons

    Upper Management failed to respond effectively to Middle Management.

    Middle Management did not have hire AND fire authority which ultimately negated the entire organization.

    Advice to Management

    Screen your employees - especially contracted employees that are viewed as "warm bodies" filling a slot so the company can receive income. "Warm bodies" overburden the functioning team!
