    Pros

    Company doesn't micromanage you to death. HR department is incredibly quick to respond to your questions and provides good communication. Feels like a small growing company with decent pay.

    Cons

    Could provide more benefits toward job training and provide tuition reimbursement. Safari bookstore is about the only extra benefit provided.

    Insurance could be a bit better, but the cost isn't too bad.

    I don't see any opportunity for growth inside the company considering they deal with defense contacts.

    Advice to Management

    Look to provide more benefits to your employees. Providing a means to education and job skill growth is not a negative.

    Pros

    not many that come into my mind

    Cons

    I've worked here for more than 3 years and witnessed the downfall of its management and performance. They used to give employee stock and share, but those thing become frivolous now. Bonus and Salary hike are the jokes. They cut the vacation, and force you to take vacation so they can stop vacation cash-out to save money, no decent computer to work with, no training, if you're an IT person and not so busy with your project, they will ask you to do anything including changing light bulbs, fixing leaking roof.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so selfish,greedy and needy, most of you have stayed there over 20 years, that's long enough and make enough money. It's time to pay your employees what they deserve, gotta treat employees as employees, not your IT slaves.
