    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Some nice people work here. You NEVER see management. Very decentralized..

    Cons

    This is not an IT company. It is an engineering company with an IT branch that is treated like a poor stepchild.
    Benefits suck and keep getting worse.
    Attitude towards employees is you should be glad to have a job.

    Advice to Management

    Sell off the IT branch to a company that cares.


  2. "About average for a big government contractor"

    Pros

    Compensation seems good with reasonable annual increases. Benefits seem about average for large-scale government contractors. In my experience, work demands have never been unreasonable.

    Cons

    While the workload doesn't seem overly-taxing for most people, this is not a place where you're likely to find a lot of professional growth. From what I saw, management seeks out service contracts where they help clients maintain status quo, rather than asserting any technical leadership. When it's time to innovate, clients seem to look elsewhere.

    The company is huge and different organizations and the different projects they are working on are very isolated from one another. So, opportunities to move between organizations to find new challenges are probably limited.

    Advice to Management

    Having people make up their own career and development goals might work in other environments. But in my experience, this is a meaningless exercise when management is not communicating any long-term direction, whether company-driven or client-driven. Personal goals need to be tied to organizational goals.
