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

    Pros

    Great company, flexible, opportunities for growth. Allows telecommuting, good work environment. Management has open door policy. Employs people who have each other's back.

    Cons

    Recently acquired by a larger company which caused it to lose it's small, family-owned feel. There is some nepotism, but that's just life.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to employees what is going on with contracts and where the company is headed from here on out. Give promotions and jobs based on qualifications not because a certain employee is a manager's son or daughter.

    Free pizza; down to earth partners; flexible schedule; nice office

    Awful manager(s) who mis-manage, micro-manage, don't manage, etc.

  3. "Nice Company Good People"

    Former Employee - Senior Business Analyst in Silver Spring, MD

    I worked at Edaptive Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I spent most of my time out of the office at a client site, but found that the company was made up of nice and considerate people. Good benefits and great work-life balance. Management is transparent and there are regular town halls to keep everyone informed.

    Cons

    Even though transparency was key, it seemed people jumped ship to other projects on the slightest bit of uncertainty which could result in lack of project continuity.

    Advice to Management

    None. I had never worked for such an open company before and it found I very refreshing! Tone was set at the top and middle managers in turn were also open and direct.

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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, telecommuting policy, generous amount of PTO, Very nice office environment, free soda & coffee, Gym in building, Subway in building, competitive salaries, family friendly company

    Cons

    Rely on government contracts for job security, corporate staff are distant and sometimes very impersonal and insensitive. Contract issues on my project lead to a layoff massacre of the team I worked on. Over 100 employees laid off. Good severance package, but I was laid off via an email Spam. Not one person from HR even spoke to me to explain to me that I was laid off, why, etc. I had no ability to ask any questions. Made me feel like the several years I worked there meant nothing to them.

    Advice to Management

    Even if it takes a little bit more effort, have respect when laying someone off. It's a hard thing to deal with from both sides and a little bit of respect can go a long way. DO NOT send someone an email from an HR email (not even a specific person) to lay them off. It's cold and rude.

    Pros

    Family oriented company with an exceptional leadership team. Many perks and benefits that make employees feel valued and appreciated.

    Cons

    Your tenure is solely dependent on the availability of contracts. Unfortunate because the
    Company dynamic that exist here often cannot be duplicated in conventional companies
