No opinion of CEO

I have been working at ECS Federal full-time (More than a year)

Pros

1. The firm is doing well financially.
2. Competent staff.
3. Very responsive administrative support.

Cons

1. The salary increases are a joke. I am part of a team that just won a 5-year contract (re-compete). The average salary increases ranged between 0 - 1.5%.
2. Limited communication across the board (especially from executive management).
3. Executive and senior management are not proactive. They prefer to react after the house has burned down.
4. There does not appear to be a firm culture. The culture is contract dependent.

Advice to Management

1. If you want to retain good people, pay them what they are worth. After all, you have the money.
2. Make more of an effort to communicate with staff (especially those at client sites).

    I have been working at ECS Federal full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule due to family life. Roy Kapani and his key Executives care about their employees. Open communication with Mr. Kapani and his Executives.

    Cons

    Wish it were an ESOP company.

    I have been working at ECS Federal full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Can't think of any......but if I have to come up with some they might be
    1. Lousy 1% or so yearly raise
    2. Yearly dinner party...and a $25 or so gift card per year.

    Cons

    1. No one cares about IT or engineering staff.
    2. If you are a man...you have no career growth....almost all managers and team leads are women
    3. They basically have command and control centers...and if you are not one of they types that NODS and everything and say YES you are in trouble.
    4. The top managers suck up to feds and basically do not give any details about what the agency wide strategy is going to be for the next few years.
    5. If you just do your work and not ask any questions they you are fine.

    Advice to Management

    OPEN your EYES and EARS and at least try to make amends.
    Implement a proper SDLC process.........embrace change..or you will be left behind.
