Pros

Flexible working hours and management tried to keep employees after government contracts ended. Company 401K matching contributions were competitive.

Cons

Medical benefits were limited to a consumer drive high deductible plan, or a low quality HMO. Education benefits were limited to certain fields of study. Human resources and benefit information is hard to find among different websites. Too much reliance on technology to address HR needs.

Advice to Management

Improve employee benefits and make it easy for an employee to be an employee within the company. Too much time is wasted trying to handle employee HR and administrative issues.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule if you luck out w/the right job and management

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, still settling on processes and players after the last merger almost 3 years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by noble principles, including the bottom line, not by reports, especially not to be in red. Everything is not a firedrill. Elaborate or be open to questions if someone needs information beyond your one-word directives. Lead with compassion, not by the threat of your formal authority. Cherish and respect a team that challenges stupid moves. We don't want mud on our faces nor we want to be out of job any more than you do.

    Pros

    For the right projects, they are able to muster massive resources to get it done.

    Cons

    The sprawling organization can be difficult to navigate. Some managers have simply retired in place and have no interest in working with you to make positive change to the company.

    Advice to Management

    It's not all about stock options. Meaning don't just focus on getting the stock price up today to make your bonuses fat.
