    Pros

    They have wonderful accommodations. Each cubicle has 2 large dual computers to work on. The office space is large, welcoming, and friendly. Even though you have your own projects, it is easy to turn around and ask others for help if needed.

    Cons

    Personally it was a bit of a drive for me each day, but that is circumstantial and it was not that big of a deal.

    Pros

    The majority of my coworkers were great, they made it bearable and i wouldn't have stayed in the company for as long as i did if it wasn't for them.

    The health insurance benefits are pretty good, you can't beat $20 per paycheck for a pretty good plan.

    Cons

    This is a glorified staffing company & production shop. Management claims to have a vision, but they invariably revert back to what they do best which is staff federal contracts and hire unskilled, recently graduated college kids to work on mindless production work. A few of the kids quit, a few get fired, and a 'lucky' few are made into team leaders or groomed for middle management, just in time for the next batch of spring graduates. Rinse & Repeat.

    What matters here the most is your ability to talk yourself up and who you know in the GIS industry.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the fat and reward results.
