Pros

Management allows employees the freedom to make good business decisions. Great facilities and really a good team of people.

Cons

The company is really two entities a federal services contractor and a commercial sales and support organization.

On the federal side, the company has never figured out how to compete with the big companies - through acquisition, a company that formerly was able to do business as a small business now has to compete with the likes of Lockheed, Northrop, IBM, ... While the management team was turned over about 18 months ago, the new players have never been in this type of situation before. They might eventually get at, but at what cost to the investors and employees.

For those taking a contract role - it's just that, a contract role - there might be opportunities for advancement, but remember they have a duty to fill this slot at the proposed salary for five years with minimal increases.

Advice to Management

There are some great people here, hurt by rapid growth through acquisition. Some people think it's about the messaging and maybe it is, but I believe it's about finding the niches you not only can play in but dominate.

    Pros

    Netstar-1 has a lot of job opportunities. The company has a 401k match, dental, vision, and healthcare plans. Employees accumulate hours for time off after their first pay check.

    Cons

    The downsides are that it takes a while to get signed up for training classes. It is also hard to get a real pay raise.

    Advice to Management

    The managers all have different management styles. I've seen minimal direction to the extreme micro-managing style. The managers have to find a style that builds efficient teams and increases productivity.
