    The pay and benefits packages are at the industry average. Good professional development for subsequent employment with another company.

    Uninspired company culture reflected by poor senior leadership. Nearly completely reliant on government contracts with no clear development strategy. Unable to retain key talent.

    Pros

    Interesting work
    Decent location, Portsmouth is a nice small city

    Cons

    Pay is less than normal for the industry
    Very little work life balance
    Incompetent managers
    Many people fill positions they are not qualified for

    Advice to Management

    Stop believing your own hype. Secure good business, and meet the requirements, get rid of the dead weight existing within multiple divisions of the company, and stop promoting people based on popularity.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Really bright, talented, committed team. Great contracts serving national nonprofits with Federal grants to serve low-income communities and at-risk youth.

    Cons

    The leadership is conservative, politically and culturally. But most staff are progressive. so, it's a funny, tense mix, at times. People work very, very hard.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to trust. Listen to the team's desire to network on behalf of the company without having them jump through hoops.
