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

Pros

Open Communications and focused on putting the customer first. Sincere interest in promoting talented people from within the company. The management team seems to recognize the need for faster technology adoption. Also, focused on growth through acquisition, which theoretically should create opportunities for advancement. Company is also family oriented and throughs a nice holiday party.

Cons

Tough industry. The government doesn't seem very interested in quality these days and are more focused on cost at the expense of experience, so company is cutting cost to keep winning contracts. Could be trouble in the future.

Advice to Management

Please be consider expanding beyond government.

    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).


  2. "Pleasant environment and Rewarding"

    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.
