    Pros

    I love the management, team, and even upper management. They are all fair and my direct supervision actually cares about their people.

    Cons

    The only downside is that this is a contract, there is only so much they can do to higher salary paid workers with bonuses and raises, they can meet only up to a certain quota. But they are awesome

    Solid entry-level job

    Jun 9, 2022 - Building Operations Specialist in Chantilly, VA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits and flexibility. Very good culture within the office.

    Cons

    - The uncertainty of the clearance process is possibly the largest goose-egg related to this job. Until you are granted a clearance which could take a year or multiple years you are for the most part stuck in the position and at any point can just be fired on the spot. - Operational procedures seem to shift ratherly frequently or are sometimes unclear making it difficult to keep up with protocol which is then turned on you whether your fault or not.

    Pros

    Life insurance, 401k match, flex-schedule and hybrid work. Great PLT if negotiated for a tenured teer.

    Cons

    Favorites and nepotism exist in the leadership choices. Bad contract budgeting makes for micromanaging of employees. People are promoted based on loyalty and not skill.

    Upper Leadership

    Jun 13, 2022 - Program Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Upper leadership knows how to make money Middle management does a good job of looking out for their staff.

    Cons

    Upper leadership only cares about making money and not about the employees they have. They lack understanding of what their current employees need/want and instead care more about purchasing other companies and make a quick buck. Benefits are below industry standard, they could care less about employees who had to miss time during COVID, and they don't understand that most govt contractors get all federal holidays. The company is constantly in "reorg" mode and overhead personnel are in fear of losing their job.
