Pros

Senior management supportive of employees who want to contribute. Lots of opportunities for personal, professional growth. Supportive management - During government shutdown, company worked at all levels to keep everyone covered… either on company overhead or on temporary billable assignments. Those who had to use PTO or LWOP we all reimbursed by donations made by senior managers. Many opps to step into leadership roles, regardless of current position or role. Senior management encourages mentoring of those who lean forward and want to move up in management. the company is actively looking to continue to improve education and training opps for employees who want to improve or expand their skills, technical or business.

Cons

The four sector model poses some challenges, as each is run as a small company inside the larger corporation. Some of the corporate benefits could be improved.

Advice to Management

Continue to encourage growth from within.

    Pros

    The company really does have some stellar technical people on staff—Some of the greatest I've ever worked with. The pay's favorable compared to other shops in the area, but the company does not maintain a bench of note.

    Cons

    This is truly a body shop. You as an employee exist to bill the client for your time—nothing more, nothing less. The company has become top-heavy, with many more managers than active employees, which only exacerbates the pressure to bill at any cost. Forget about career paths or advancement, though—Once your contract is up, it's out the door. (Though, to be fair, their separation terms are slightly above average.)

    Advice to Management

    Make up your minds. If you want to be a shop known for deep technical skill, you need to invest in your employees. Provide them with advancement, encourage them to become certified (without taking vacation hours to do so). If, on the other hand, you're happy being known as a body shop, then say so openly and stop trying to hide it.

    Either way you go, something needs to be done about the excessive management overhead.
