    I worked at ArdentMC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company was small at the time, and management was accessible. I got to work on fun projects, and was given the opportunity to learn and grow very quickly.

    Cons

    Some issues with communication between the East Coast office and the Maui office.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees, and keep going after the interesting work.

    I worked at ArdentMC full-time

    Pros

    The CEO (Brandon) has the right vision for the future of his company. They also have the best BD team that I ever worked with. They (Michael M. and Matt K.) are super nice people to work with, combining tempo/expertise and winning strategies to win more contracts. Their team of professionals are experienced and highly technical.

    Cons

    Hiring mangers are mostly new to fast growing environment and hiring. Company has right startup mentality but do not have the right strategy to implement its culture. Often, senior management tries to increase productivity but does not have a clue to engage employees into the process. Their HR leadership is a mediocre. HR leaders are supposed to be the people with solid employee relations skills, to whom managers and employees come for good support and advice. Not here.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with and listen to your employees. There is no culture where employees voice are heard and valued. Lack of accountability at the top when it comes to adhering to policies and procedures hurts the bottom line (employees).

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

    Pros

    The work can be quite challenging and therefore very interesting. Some of the software engineers are very good at mentoring junior developers.

    Cons

    There is an extremely high turn over rate, at all levels, Senior Management, Software Engineers, HR and FSO. On-boarding is very disorganized and paperwork is lost or misplaced (including very sensitive personal information).

    Salary and benefits are mediocre given the volume of work individuals are expected to carry. There is no career growth, when openings occur, people are hired from external sources. There are a few senior engineers who are expected to mentor many junior engineers while maintaining a heavy workload, this leads to no work\life balance. People are expected to work many hours (more than 80 a week in some cases) and not always record these to maintain profit margins.

    Several senior managers have never supervised anyone and are placed into these positions without any training. This has led to quite a bit of tension between engineers and program managers. Several micro-manage while others are completely hands-off, there is needs to be more of middle of the road approach so engineers have consistency across projects.

    Advice to Management

    Hire an outside consulting firm, that is non-biased, to evaluate better management techniques and ways to improve morale and reduce the turn-over rate.

    I have been working at ArdentMC full-time

    Pros

    Ardent really does have the answers to government requirements. Their team of professionals are experienced GIS/Situational Awareness IT SME's. In addition, the principals at Ardent are the best in BD that I have ever seen or had the opportunity with which to work. These characteristics set Ardent apart as a highly regarded, trusted government contractor in GIS/SA/IT solutions.

    Cons

    Very hardworking team which can sometimes be difficult to maintain a work like balance.

    Pros

    Great company, great management and great coworkers. Benefits are what you would expect but do not cost an arm and a leg. Work schedules are pretty flexible and the office has nice perks with snacks. Bonus, it's MAUI!

    Cons

    It's sooo quiet. :) I guess i've just worked with a lot of loud people.
