    I worked at Creative Information Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good pay, flexible hours, relaxed environment

    Cons

    there is an incredibly large culture gap there as well as an extremely unprofessional environment. Lots that certain members that are related to the CEO can get away with, such as sleeping at their desks. CEO picks or doesn't pick contracts based on his own whims and there is a large turnover rate as the job you are brought in to do is rarely what you will actually be doing.

    Pros

    I cannot think of one pro to working here other than collecting a paycheck. it is best to move on as soon as you have a chance.

    Cons

    be prepared to have your career goals shuttered. No support to grow, only to have you as a butt-in-seat contractor serving at the whims of a bloviating CEO

    Pros

    Well managed at the corporate level with a good HR department and headquarters. Very well managed compared to most small to medium sized DC federal contractors.

    Cons

    Pursues a lot of low hanging fruit for government contracting. No overall synergy between different contracts.

    Advice to Management

    Meetings should start on time if you have a poster about meeting etiquette posted in every conference room.

    I worked at Creative Information Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    + I started with CITI after a three-month period of unemployment and this was my first post-college job that lasted longer than 8 months.
    + PMPs and offsight management were unobtrusive and supportive in helping me settle into my role as an offsight contractor for the State Department.
    + Even though my contract with CITI expired 15 months after I started, I am still working at State through a different contracting company, so it opened more doors for my career.

    Cons

    - The benefits could be better. Before my long unemployment I came from a tech startup that gave employees a preloaded FSA with $5k on it, four weeks of PTO, profit sharing, a 6% match for its 401k, great health and dental coverage, and paid for my metro. CITI's benefits on the other hand are a modest 3% match on the 401k, decent health and dental insurance, and 3 weeks of PTO, and you must allocate your own money to an HSA/FSA and transportation. To receive one week of severance if your contract expires, you must have worked for CITI for one year.
    - The pay schedule is strange, paying employees on the 7th and 22nd of every month.
    - Working as an offsight employee can make you feel detached from the rest of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to better engage offsight employees and provide better compensation and benefits to attract and retain talent.
