Salary compensation is low compared to industry standards. Also it is not a merit based compensation. Too much focus on process and security aspect.

    I worked at Early Warning Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy work. No long hours. Little pressure to perform. Four weeks PTO. Some friendly people.

    Cons

    Very little or nothing ever gets delivered. Management is clueless about how to deliver anything. The move to "agile" would help if they knew what they were doing, but they are clueless. Any effort at innovation will be met with severe resistance. Turnover is high among new employees as they are frustrated at inability of management to structure an environment where things get done. Very political and siloed.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to be agile you will need to remove some members of upper and middle management who are blocking its adoption.

    I worked at Early Warning Services full-time

    Pros

    7 hour work day, no micro management, decent starting salary, good benefits, come and go as you wish, out-of-touch managers will never challenge your decision making, the work is really really easy, onsite procurement guru, nice security guards, cool limitless technology, friendly colleagues on a personal level, IT is very responsive and very knowledgeable, awkward but fun employee events, regular companywide all staff meetings with open bars, flushless urinals, restricted rooms, free covered parking available, 4 weeks PTO when starting, casual dress code (jeans everyday all day), executives tells good jokes, physical wellness program, lengthy project timelines, TVs with cable in conference rooms, on site tranquility room, some rooms have ping-pong...

    Cons

    No incentive to work hard (annual raises are 2% across the board no matter how well or how bad your performance review went). You can actually do nothing and no one will call you out on it and thus there is no accountability. Bureaucracy worst than the federal government (and I worked for the federal government). Internal departments are never on same page and thus act as silos. Legal and compliance issues are slow to be addressed. HR is out-of-touch and come off as puppets of executives. Management is incapable of being hands-on what-so-ever...thus the failure rate for "innovative" projects and any business development initiatives is very high. Silly security procedures are ever evolving to the dissatisfaction of most employees giving you the impression that you work within a super max prision. Most employees evolve into "dead fish" with no real purpose. I reiterate everything the previous 3 reviews detailed.

    Advice to Management

    Quit your day job.
