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

    Pros

    Benefits that you pay for. Hours (depending on the customer).

    Cons

    Pay is bottom of the barrel and there is no negotiating. The government pays 4x what you get paid for your seat. The make cuts almost 6% across the board to employees who are already being paid lower than the industry standard and then throw a celebration party because THEY won the contract from the government? Program manager gives you evaluations off of pay raises. If they give you anything above a 3.0, they have to give you a raise - guess where everyone falls? My program manager didn't even know where I worked, how could he evaluate the job I was doing? Absolutely ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    In a heavy military retirement town, they can screw the employees because there are so many applicants. Upper management makes all the money while not giving the workers any pay raises from year to year. No negotiating salary based on experience or education. Disgruntled and furious with the system.

    Pros

    Big name recognition. Paid ok but could have been better. Benefits were decent. People on project were nice.

    Cons

    Too big a company. Felt like a number not a person. Couldn't get the same answer from different people when asking questions

    Advice to Management

    Need to have hr department that knows what is going on. I had been working for months looking for a new project since mine was ending. HR was if no use and even asked me why in hadn't dashed for their help when I quit. I had asked them weekly for 4 months.

    Pros

    CACI wins a lot of work, and they have great clients. It's a very respectable work environment for strong performers, and they provide many opportunities to demonstrate your value and ability as an employee.

    Cons

    CRM solutions and PM tools are well behind the power curve. It makes doing the job much harder than it should be, but this is an easy fix (investment) relative to challenges that other companies face.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in Deltek PM Compass and fully integrate your systems. It would pay for itself when you factor the cost of lost productivity, and the reporting features of PM Compass would ensure full compliance with CRDL reporting formats, making it easier to earn and retain favorable CPARS ratings.

    Frequent corporate communications from top-level leadership
    Best tuition assistance program (10% of salary up to $12K annually)
    Opportunities about for self-starters

    Cons

    Difficult to find out who does what, where, across the company
    Over-reliance on middle-management to get the word out to people on programs
    Hard to find opportunities to engage/problem solve outside of your program

    Advice to Management

    There are a large number of motivated employees in the company. Give them a chance to bring the skills they use to solve problems and delight our customers every day back to CACI, particularly in CIS.

    Pros

    Highly structured with very good attention to detail on internal training programs. This company is looking for talented people to invest in. Good quality leadership training and mentoring program.

    Cons

    Large company can make it difficult to "get on the radar". Make sure you engage your leadership at at least 2 levels above you or risk being lost in a sea of faces.

    Advice to Management

    You need to identify quality leaders soon or risk losing them to competitors. Its difficult in a government contracting environment to make sure your line leadership know your employees well enough to recognize top performers when a chain of command is not structured around the work effort supporting the customer. Fix that and get better work results and a better read on who is a top performer.
