    "Great people working hard"

    I worked at CACI International full-time

    Pros

    Great people working hard behind the scenes to ensure the business side is running as smoothly as possible. They took care of the folks on the ground and very supportive.

    Cons

    Was part of the restructuring with purchase of company, and the transition (like most) was difficult. But, CACI did do quite a bit to ensure personnel were taken care of on the ground even while most of the previous company's upper management was laid off immediately.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes, too many lanes for support cause more work for people on the ground. Stream line the processes to make them easier versus having to go through 5 to get to 1.

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

    Pros

    Outstanding company culture. CACI knows how important its reputation is and expects integrity from all of its employees.
    Access to job network for former employees suggests that CACI wants employees to return even if they change positions or lines of work over time.
    Benefits were good.

    Cons

    Despite CACI’s claims to want to help further their employees’ careers, advancement or on the job training outside of what we needed for our current position was practically nonexistent.
    While our manager trusted us to work hard and do a thorough job, we had little connection with her - I think I saw her once a month on average (in passing) while I worked for CACI.

    Pros

    Some good people still within the company

    Cons

    HR jobs are a dead-end. There is no chance of mobility. You'll have to move out of the HR department to move. To gain the experience, you'll have to do that on your own. There is very little in the budget for outside training. No bonuses offered. Inflexible regarding working location.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve the career development opportunities. Offer more flexibility for remote work.

    Excellent HR, excellent management, great benefits, one of the best tuition reimbursement policies in the business

    Very tight with money (i.e. bonuses), get lost with employees on remote contracts

    Advice to Management

    Executive level needs to do a better job taking care of employees at lower levels.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, internal opportunities to work on a variety of projects if your manager supports it.

    Cons

    Large company. as soon as you go off contract you are out the door. They will say you are supposed to have a quality of life balance but in practice they do nothing but try to work you to death

    Advice to Management

    teach your mid-level managers that people are not disposable.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are great for a starter job our of college, many of the CACI staff, trainers, and fellow investigators were professional, kind human beings

    Cons

    When I applied and when I wrote this review, the CACI website shows in their landing page that background investigator jobs are for those looking for "work/life balance" and "flexible hours" - It was also touted this way on in the description where you apply for the job. I asked about how this works in the job interview and during training. I was told that you can work 12 hours one day and then 6 hours the next if you wish, just get your 40 hours in each week and get the job done. From what I hear from other investigators, this is true, except if you live in California. In order to comply with California's rules of treating hourly workers fairly as far as breaks and compensating for overtime, you have to work 8 hour days with little flexibility. To actually complete the intense workload of cases they give, I would have had to basically lie on my timecard to comply with the impossible combination of other people's availability for interviews, the strict California laws, and CACI's emphasis on hitting your "numbers" or metrics for quantity and quality. In any other state, the hours appear to be truly flexible, but the workload is still not in line with the pay. I left because I refused to be placed in that impossible situation and live in fear of any leg of that precarious stool from falling out from under me.

    The computer/technology provided for the job is quite antiquated. IT issues plagued training and also cause lost hours of productive time.

    Advice to Management

    Why do background investigators have to be hourly workers? Why is the culture so metrics oriented and not focused on national security? Invest in your investigators because if they are really the first line of defense as mentioned on the first day of training, then they should be treated with more respect and not as a cog in the machine. Also update the computer systems and unify them into one instead of using so many different vendors.

    I worked at CACI International full-time

    Pros

    They USED to be small and people oriented. With tough review but no unreasonable expectations.

    Working from home,

    Cons

    Managers run you into the ground, metrics get pushed everyday, you become a number and if you think you'll get moved up look elsewhere. Managers make comments such as.. it really helped our team when such and such quit their stats weren't that good anyhow.
    The work/life balance
    Forget real life actually being taken into account. - kids you'd better kick them to the curb because your metrics come first. Relative dies, to your face they feel bad for you. A week or so later, what do you mean your not going to make your stats..what's your excuse and send it in an email for my records.
