    I have been working at Applied Information Sciences full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love the fact that this is a veteran owned company. I love how we have such a diverse group of people here to work with that bring so many different knowledge sets to the table. Basically I don't how in the world I could've found a better job right out of the gate just having retired from Active Federal Service.

    Cons

    Although there is always room for improvement, I cant think of a "Con" right now.

    Pros

    Amazing place to work! I started at AIS few months ago and immediately I can see growth potential. When I was looking for my next opportunity, I was very selective on which company I want to work with. When I came acorss AIS, I knew exactly this company can offer me what I'm looking for and I was 100% on point. I'm extremely happy I am now part of AIS' team!

    Cons

    I do not have anything to share at this point.

    Pros

    They invest heavily in their employees, provide a wonderful culture. Management is great. Everyone I have dealt with in the company from HR to Help desk, to the president are wonderful professionals.

    Cons

    It's really hard to find one, although if I had to it would be this - with so many bright, talented world-class people working for the company, it can make a person feel insecure in their own knowledge and talents.

    I have been working at Applied Information Sciences full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The number one thing I like best about working at AIS is knowing that I am a valued member of the team.

    From day one my knowledge and skills were recognized and put to immediate use.

    The enthusiasm shown by the AIS recruiting team during my interview and subsequent hiring was an important factor in choosing to work at AIS.

    The honesty and integrity of the Leadership demonstrated during my interview/hiring process is the reason I came to work for AIS.

    Cons

    If you want to work 9-5 and just collect a paycheck, do not work here
    If you need to be micromanaged, do not work here
    If you are done learning and growing professionally, do not work here

    Advice to Management

    Continue to set Vision, Goals & Objectives
    Continue to provide opportunities
    Continue to encourage creativity and innovation

    I have been working at Applied Information Sciences full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Smart and capable co-workers, good benefits, excellent opportunities for motivated self-starters. Managers are accessible and the structure is flat. Company is dedicated to exploring and developing expertise in the latest technologies, including cloud solutions in Azure. AIS does not hire just to staff projects, but is looking for people to grow with the company.

    Cons

    Some project assignments aren't terribly exciting but generally you can get reassigned if you ask. Experiencing some growing pains and there does not seem to be a clear vision for developing new managers to sustain growth.

    Pros

    Excellent colleagues who are enthusiastic about the technology they work with.

    Cons

    Management is very poor at communicating employee feedback. You will have no idea where you stand with the company until the day of your performance review where all negative feedback that you are hearing for the first time is unloaded at once.

    Advice to Management

    Give feedback more often to your employees so they know where they stand and will have time to correct any issues
