    I have been working at Chenega Federal Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CFS has been a great company to work for. I came from a larger business that I was at for almost 10 years and I prefer the smaller feel of CFS. Management has been great. CFS and Chenega as a whole promotes from within more than any other company I've been with. Nothing but positive.

    Cons

    No cons to mention at this time.

  3. "Great Employer"

    I have been working at Chenega Federal Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked for several companies within the Chenega Family, and have genuinely enjoyed working for each. Management genuinely cares about employee growth and development, and I always feel like I have a clear plan for my future within the company.

    Cons

    BD is centrally located in VA.

    I worked at Chenega Federal Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hired because of former skill sets associated with a very specific "unit" in the military. Good opportunity for vets needing help.

    Cons

    Employer is cheap! Salaries are too low and management takes advantage of low-balling employees.

    Advice to Management

    This company will always be a success because management has the bottom line up front mentality. You are going to make money here as an employer, and only certain people advance. Chenega Federal Systems is a branch of Chenega that was designed by former Unit Guys only to help FORMER UNIT GUYS....that's it, financially as well as anything else. You all out there in the military community know how and when Chenega Federal Systems got started, and by whom. If you haven't been with the "Unit" you aren't in the club. If you aren't in the "club" you aren't going to advance.

    I worked at Chenega Federal Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Seemed genuinely enthusiastic about acknowledging employee goals for growth

    Competitive salaries

    Management accessable

    Actually interviewed and hired talent, didn't just fill butts in seats.

    Cons

    Management was ill-prepared to adjust CFS to life after small business qualification. Their primary method was just to spin off a new AN 8(a) and align with other business units to leverage past performance. In other words, you could remain with the same customer for 10 years and work for 3-4 different "companies."

    Advice to Management

    The core MiOS group was great to work with. Disappointed that my time came to an end, but when presented with the intel that the competing companies had significantly lower wrap rates and profit cut, you'd think that would have been incorporated in the following bid.

    Work on BD pipeline, regardless of current customer base.

    Management is horrible at communicating. They also tend to play favorites

    Advice to Management

    Communicates with employees better. Admit when you screw up

    Pros

    None, I was hoping working with a smaller company would be positive experience, not the case.

    Cons

    Insulting pay with no chance for promotions or raises unless you are part of an exclusive group.
    Horrible benefits. Th best example, employees can only take their leave in 8 hour increments which means you have to use an entire day of leave for any personal matter ( Dr appointment, kids, etc...) Not a company that cares about its employees' work/ life balance

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire and promote old buddy's that have no idea what they are doing.

    Pros

    Good money, very competitive benefits

    Cons

    Little company support, sleazy leadership, I always felt like the company was trying to pull one over on the client or on me. Watch out for yourself because the company certainly doesn't have your back.
