    I worked at EDJ Associates full-time

    Pros

    Supportive colleagues, decent benefits (Health and dental insurance), 401K, PTO.

    Cons

    Previous reviews that mention that management will call you incessantly on how to do THEIR job is absolutely correct. Imagine this, your direct supervisor calls to ask you how to work an Excel spreadsheet. How have you been doing this job for 10+ years and you can't work Excel? Better yet, how have you been on this particular contract for 10+ years and you don't know how to do your job? It can only stay hidden for so...

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate individuals you put into management positions, you could hire someone new for less money, and they would be more effective and efficient.

    I have been working at EDJ Associates full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    They offer health insurance and a decent 2-week PTO starting off.

    Cons

    Where to begin...The management staff on our government contract in Arlington is quite frankly highly incompetent, unprofessional, and dismissive. Competencies: Management frequently interrupts employees with phone calls to ask advice on how-to accomplish a task assigned to them. Unprofessional: Management has been witnessed to share (multiple times) personal, and confidential employee information which is a blatant...

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge that there are no opportunities for growth for your employees. Period. Honest is the best policy. At least once a year, inquire about the contract and solicit feedback from the contract team AND management. Not just management. Hire better qualified management staff who can offer valuable, productive contributions to the entire team.
