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

    Pros

    Dedicated, intelligent co-workers.
    Good salary and benefits.
    Strong focus on quality.
    Some interesting projects.
    Respected by clients.
    Strong personal integrity and commitment of most staff and management.

    Cons

    Change in COO/CFO/President in the previous year, subsequent restructuring, and downsizing resulted in uncertainty and at times, unreasonable workloads for the remaining staff.

    Training on new technologies was limited.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees.
    Automate more of Camber's internal processes.
    Increase support staff.

    Pros

    Comfortable office culture and camaraderie.
    Great company benefits.

    Cons

    Salaries not competitive with local like industry competitors.
    Limited room for growth and job uncertainty due to the nature of the beast of government contracting.
    Weak proposal writing and business development teams proven by loss of both bids to keep existing projects and bids to win new contracts.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a Camber talent expertise database from which to draw best qualified talent to support proposals (especially), transitions, leadership, etc.

    I have been working at Camber full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has some long term contracts with some DOD and Civilian customers that can provide long term employment to the employees.

    Cons

    The company is focused on winning new large contracts. The desire to win by bidding low is resulting in low salaries.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to balance the desire to win with reasonable profit margins against salaries that will allow the company to hire competent staff that will work through the duration of the contract.
