    Pros

    nice colleague, flexible time, almost never work on extra time, working environment is leisure. free parking. You can learn a lot if you love aviation.

    The management is like a chaos. The leader did not know what the company can do and how to do it. They wanted to make a change, and had no basic sense how to start with it.

    Hire professional team and experts to manage and expand the team. We need more experts to start with the changes.

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

    Pros

    Great work life balance, mainly because you have nothing to do. Employees abuse the liberal telework policy.

    Office location is cool, new building with a gym.

    Cons

    The company is shrinking and has been for over a year, cuts made left and right, no raises or bonuses given, bogus yearly review process that is an exercise in futility.

    Frankly, the company has stalled and failed to invest in itself and its capabilities to sustain its growth. The company's exec staff and overhead are really too large to support its small number of contracts left. The staff is mainly 50-60 yes old plus and are retired from the FAA, the company seems to have no interest in getting young talent or ideas.

    There are very few opportunities for growth and the company feels like caste system, those who are already at the top will remain, regardless of the lack of performance.

    The health insurance is really expensive, minimal 401k match and a small number of PTO days.

    Lots of employees that do absolutely nothing, yet get recognition for their "contributions"

    Advice to Management

    Take a serious look at who is in your leadership and more senior positions. If they don't produce, get rid of them. Make the staff and really does work feel valued and cared for as opposed to just butts in seats.
