    I worked at Cimarron Software Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Incredibly talented group of developers and engineers, and the most personable and knowledgeable HR staff I've ever worked with. The work on most contracts are challenging and engaging, and promote good career growth.

    Cons

    As with any NASA contractor, the pendulum of job stability can swing wildly from year to year or even month to month due to factors outside of your control. Always expect the unexpected and be prepared to move on if needed.

    Advice to Management

    Aggressively expand and diversify your client base. Promote as much visibility as you can between the business office and the practitioners, and frequently encourage feedback from all employees.

    I have been working at Cimarron Software Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Average Benefits
    - Working on software for NASA Spacecraft

    Cons

    - Little contact or direction (which might be a pro...)

    Advice to Management

    - Don't know, worked out of state on a contract and only met with cimarron co-workers on the same project. Contract management would come out every 6 months or so to check in and take us to dinner.

    I have been working at Cimarron Software Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Management team is great. They are progressive and forward thinking with regards to technology, approaches and people. The company as a whole continues to expand with new and interesting opportunities across the US.

    Cons

    The corporate offices are old, but I think they are moving soon.

    Missed out on a few opportunities recently, but this was more about the philosophy and integrity of leadership, as opposed to skills of the workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Keep thinking of new ways to keep the core staff engaged and happy. Overall, this company is great to work for.

    I worked at Cimarron Software Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Cimarron picked us up in our then current positions after contract change. This happened several times since my start in Mission Control Center 7 July 82.

    Cons

    benefits need to be improved severely

    Advice to Management

    Due to reduction in force, my manager was released as well.

    I have been working at Cimarron Software Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Small company, professional and competent HR and headquarters staff. Good pay, reasonable benefits. Good place for experience to build a resume.

    Cons

    No growth, stagnant jobs for those working (24x7 rotating shift) aerospace contracts. I started in 1999 with no chance of promotion since, less than supportive local managers. Layoff after layoff after layoff. Morale is destroyed in the workplace. Employees are high caliber and dedicated to their craft, overworked and under supported.

    Advice to Management

    Work hard on getting some real, professional local managers who know something about employee development and skills advancement. People are your only asset on a service contract, be more proactively supportive of their growth and you'll reap benefits with your customers. Establish a true plan to actually provide for employee futures. Stop demanding so much on the job in return for so little support.

    Pros

    Marvin Triplett is a wonderful co/owner.

    Cons

    Bus Dev needed more structure.

    Advice to Management

    Bus. Dev should be more hungry, Pay bus dev professionals based on the business they generate on top of a base salary. If you produce some work, you could earn 500K, if you do not you could earn 30K.

    Pros

    DKI employees are salaried. We receive compensation even if we are between assignments. For those who like to travel, the corporate division travels 75+% of the time. For those who like to stick close to home, the government side of the house is where it's at.

    Cons

    For those who don't like travel, there is a LOT and they weren't told about the frequency. Communication is sort of spotty. We hear a lot of plans but aren't included in the timeline.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful with employees and customers. Give ample warning to both if changes in the contract are coming. This isn't a static company but there is often enough time to plan exit strategies.

    Great people to work with and for. Strong ethics, communication, teamwork, and competitive total compensation package. Place you can get up and look forward to coming to work every day.

    Cons

    Not really any cons to share.
