Pros

There are lots of smart people and the potential to get involved in lots of different projects. Interesting mix of people to get to know.

Cons

No major cons. Corporate culture seemed predictable and the structure seemed pretty set. Also getting to McLean, VA (unless you are already in VA) isn't the most commuter friendly.

Advice to Management

Give people more of a chance to shine and opportunities to solve problems outside of the box. Otherwise work can become too routinized quickly.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits. The company is a leader in work / life balance. Flexible works schedules are encouraged in most areas of the company.

    Cons

    Many cultural issues due to massive growth in short period of time. The performance management process is very time consuming for management and can be unfair to good performers if you get caught in the numbers game.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the performance management process that forces ratings based on corporate guidelines and percentages. The single biggest reason for poor morale at the company.
