Great culture that challenges the mind and provides a great environment for any individual looking to advance in their career.

Cons

Traffic getting to and from work always a challenge but it is the Washington DC area so I really can't complain since there is always traffic.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Name recognition, everyone knows the company by name
    Outside people usually have favorable opinion of company

    Cons

    Too big, you are just a number collecting revenue for the company
    Out the door as soon as contract is lost - no security in being in a big company
    Management is a good-old-boy network where incompetent managers are kept on overhead after they lost their contracts
    Managers get angry when you try to find better positions within the company and other groups know not to 'rob' you from where you are presently working
    They used to get their fair share of contracts but now they are subs at best. Being a sub is like begin a red-headed step child
    Once the company went public the culture changed for the worse. Company basically at the same point as IPO so this speaks to poor management
    2-3%, at best, is average annual pay increase

    Advice to Management

    Hire talented management. Stop relying on retired feds and military as managers. They are the least creative people on the planet and look at job as their second income after retirement.

    Pros

    It has very cool technology, CT-scanner for explosive detection. You can take proud from your work feeling that you are protecting the public safety.

    Cons

    Management are not reasonable, it is purely a buddy buddy system. Strong favoritism, what matters the most is who you know in the management team.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional, award top performers, don't promise if you can not keep your own words. Respect employee all the time, not just at crunch time.
