I worked at Akima full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Had a good supervisor and managed to get promoted twice but couldn't move further up after that due to lack of opportunities. Had a good open door policy to talk to HR and upper management. Learned a lot of new systems and worked with a good team.

Cons

No career development programs available to employees. Also, no tuition/education reimbursement programs available to employees.

Advice to Management

Invest in your employees and they will stick around longer.

    I have been working at Akima full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Expectations and compensation were more than fair

    Cons

    Job requires a top secret security clearance which can take years to obtain. In the interim, you must sit in a windowless room and wait while doing little to no actual work.
