I have been working at SRA International (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good people to work for, flexible work schedule/locations, some of their projects are really interesting to work for

Cons

zero room for career growth or development, difficult to get promoted especially after being bought

Advice to Management

don't go private again... has not been a smooth transition, loss of some benefits, terrible career development and growth

    I worked at SRA International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Got placed into a great area at SRA. Everyone I worked with was nice and I had my own office right out of college.

    Cons

    I was promised a job right after graduation and did not actually get placed into a paying position for 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to compete with other similar companies, especially with new hires right out of college.

    I worked at SRA International full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice people most of the time. I worked there for eight years and still cherish many of the friendships I made there.

    Cons

    Where to start...whatever the opposite of a merit-based culture is, SRA has it. Being a solid performer has zero rewards. Advancement is based solely upon someone in management liking you personally. Benefits were getting cut like mad when I left, and I've heard it's getting worse. Pay sucks compared to competitors. I got more than a 20% increase when I left for another company.

    Advice to Management

    You need to pay for the talent. Focus on your most talented people and build their careers instead of trying to create some big tent of happiness that coddles idiots. Stop promoting people based on how cute they are, how often they bring cookies, or how many volunteer events they attended.
