I worked at Riverside Research Institute full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

My 6+ years at Riverside Research have been the best years so far in my career. I worked a few different positions and always had good, supportive managers who looked out for me and encouraged me to grow as a professional and challenge myself to do great things. Since it's a small company, whenever I needed help on the HR/benefits side, the staff knew me and remembered me, and was able to provide personal, immediate help.

Cons

A general con/disadvantage of working in a contract job with a small company is that sometimes when a contract ends, the company doesn't have a good fit to place you and they have to let you go. That is the nature of the business, though.

    Pros

    Riverside Research has better benefits than any other government contractor in the WPAFB area. Compensation is also very competitive, if you are able to accurately estimate what you should be making and ask for it. Riverside treats their employees like family and is loath to let anyone go. Though contracts come and go, Riverside recognizes that people are its greatest asset and works hard to find people new positions.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of government contracts (i.e. the tendency of employees to be embedded at client sites), it can be difficult to gain recognition for accomplishments. Employees with behavioral problems tend to get special treatment in the form of better positions.
