Pros

good reputation, good work schedule

Cons

No help in career path/growth, it is all about the charge rate. Management seems to care just about sales performance which drives their bonuses. No interest in individuals or what they are doing and only seem to want to get involved when there are problems to "beat" people down.

Advice to Management

There is no cohesive culture nor a interest or willingness to work together across LOBs. Need to lead employees and care for their growth. When work dries out in a group, managers should be working hard to get employees involved in other groups so that there is not constant threat of being unbillable and being laid off. Recent collegue/MS/PhD hires seem lost as management is not involved in keeping them busy, helping them see their career, etc. It is too much about the individual person.

    Pros

    Christmas Party is one of the best in DC.
    Very competitive salary and decent benefits.
    Organization is respected in the community.

    Cons

    The company doesn't know what to do with military operations research analysts.
    Some managers and BD staff expect 100% billable employees to put in uncompensated overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Don't look the other way when managers make 100% direct billable employees work uncompensated overtime for a proposal or some other business development project. It isn't right.
