    I worked at Akima (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a foot in the door

    Cons

    Site level Management doesn't listen. Inadequate managers with inadequate management skills at work site . Managers hired have little or no Government contracting experience. Only worried about quantity of work, not quality. Shady labor practices. Hire employees "part time" so benefits do not have given.......I could go on and on

    Advice to Management

    None, they wont listen anyway. Executives have no clue what is done at site level.

    I have been working at Akima full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good environment to work in, military base, and great pay for non high school level employees. Wonderful oppertunities to advance and gain addional skills. Very good work schedule, average schedule is 7:30 AM - 4PM.

    Cons

    Managment is horrible. The same group of managers have been running the project even with the change of contracts,in at least 20 years. This location of Akima practices a very unethical and impractical form of nepotism that has violated several employee's rights and with many unjustly loosing thier jobs. With so many family and personal friend relations minepulating the system , it is impossion to hold them accoutable for unethical behavior. Management at the Ft. Gordon location is extremly corruted.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate has to really take time to investigate this situation. Ft. Gordon's Akima management team here are so set and comfortable in their postions, they are good at hiding and changing fact to silence or eliminate the employees who question their behavior.
