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

    Pros

    As a "production control clerk" you may either be working at a CACI site (doing only doc review) in Alexandria, or as a paralegal in Washington DC. If you're a paralegal, the job itself is good. You often receive interesting work and gain exposure at the DOJ. Overall it tends to be a great work environment. However, none of this is due to CACI - it purely depends on the section that you join at the DOJ.
    Typically there are also no issues with being paid on time.

    Cons

    Dealing with CACI is a major pain, especially if you are a paralegal onsite at DOJ. Emails and phone calls to manager (who has an office in the building but is rarely there) go unanswered and work trips take many months to be reimbursed. In one case, I waited nine months to be reimbursed for a trip. Management will tell you one thing in a meeting, and tell another person the complete opposite. There's a pervasive understanding that direct manager cannot be trusted to keep his/her word.

    Dealing with other CACI departments that provide technical support has been difficult, and the message from management has been to "keep any issues in the CACI chain of command", i.e. don't tell your attorneys about the problems affecting your work if it will make CACI look bad.

    If you are working offsite as a doc reviewer, you are treated as expendable and hold little value to CACI. There is no onboarding process and you're lucky if you are informed about the case you're working on. It's modern day assembly line work. You cannot even take advantage of the education benefits that CACI touts because that requires management approval (from an unresponsive manager). It's an unhappy place to work, with high turnover. If you're a paralegal working downtown and CACI wants you to get rid of you, they will transfer you to Alexandria for doc review. The turnover is no surprise, since CACI treats you like you're not worth investing in anyway. Currently, there are no opportunities for career growth.

    Overall, CACI hinders your ability to do good work downtown, and otherwise fosters an unhappy, unorganized work environment of disposable workers.

    Advice to Management

    Turnover should not be a surprise - managers are frequently absent and do not look out for employees. It should not be the case that the only method for obtaining a response or a reimbursement is to ambush a manager in the hallway. There are many ways to make this job more attractive and to retain employees, but there need to be managers who actually foster and care about these things.

    Pros

    Supportive leadership who are not withholding. Very open company. Well established as well and have a good amount of ability to obtain government contracts.

    Cons

    Contract positions are at the mercy of the bid they placed, thus unfortunately cutting salaries to make that promised bid.

    Pros

    Sub-contracted: Great management and HR team - absolute top-level talent!

    Cons

    Sub-contracted: Small company, not necessarily a con - but little possibility for lateral/upward movement unless you "grow" a position for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Sub-contracted: None - spot-on with geographically dispersed management. Change NOTHING!

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, great benefits, relaxed dress code.

    Cons

    I had a very nice boss, but he wasn't the brightest fellow, and he micromanaged me despite the fact that I out performed him by a long shot.

    I also worked in a smaller satellite office, and a lot of times important information wasn't passed on to us.

    Not the highest pay in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    I only ever met two managers, and they were low level. One could have been a little more outgoing and and upbeat.

    My other boss was too aggressive as a manager. So much so that it made me less productive, because I had to do extra tasks just to appease his management style.

    Pros

    The job allows flexible hours. Must be good at time management. Investigators can travel if they choose. The seven day work week let's you maximize your time.

    Cons

    The rules and procedures are always changing. No physical interaction with coworkers. Not much advancement opportunity unless you are willing to relocate.

    I have been working at CACI International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work from home and make your own hours. CACI as a company is great. You can expense the miles you put on your car.

    Cons

    The job is super stressful, and has sales-like metrics that are nearly impossible to hit. The people are disinterested in you are why you are trying to take time out of their day. Half of your job is cold calling people like a telemarketer. The pay is not high enough for how much work you have to do. Also, if you hate the job you can't quit for a year unless you want to pay back whatever the security clearance and training costs are.

    Advice to Management

    Please give an accurate description of the position before allowing people to accept it and get sealed into a year long contract for this position.

    Pros

    Excellent direct managers. Over all program managers dont really communicate with lower level employees, but all direct supervisors seems to put employees first.

    Cons

    Do not really have any cons at this time. All around very satisfied with work environment, co workers and managers.
