Pros

Small sat. office that's part of a big corporation. Good mentoring and employee growth. Very interesting projects. Solid starting salary. Telecommuting.

Cons

Office may sometimes seem empty. Can be very bureaucratic at times. Depending on what project your own determines your freedom.

Advice to Management

If you want a relaxed work environment with a decent amount of freedom this is your place. Depending on project and manager the work and environment can be very exciting.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Health benefits are very generous, and the paid time off is lumped into one "bucket" so that you don't have to play the "Vacation" vs. "Sick Time" game. Compensation was a little bit low to start but once a proven performer the raises were generous. Lots of continuing education. Flexible work schedule. Getting promoted is very easy if you demonstrate proficiency in your work.

    Cons

    As is usually the case with government contractors, there is virtually no career path if you want to stay technical. You have to move to management and your razor sharp skill set will likely be a casualty of the process. For a technology company that prides itself on CMMI and other certifications, the internal company "tools" provided for content management and information sharing are cave-man-esque. Many management staff are a bit out of touch and don't contribute a whole lot of value.

    Advice to Management

    I've worked at SRA for a few years and have not seen a whole lot of change, positive or negative, since the new CEO came on board. He did a lot of "shaking up" at the outset, and laid out some very aggressive growth plans that ended up dead in the water. There hasn't been a whole lot of followup since then, and I don't think employees feel very much a part of SRA as a whole, outside of their own little team.


  2. "It's mediocre depending on the position"

    Pros

    Great benefits! Some nice people to work with. Orders food out a lot of the times when people are visiting from other companies.

    Cons

    No growth potential, training, upward mobility. Pretty stagnant without much leeway for growth. No mentoring from direct management, depending on the position.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more guidance and potential for training and career development. Mentor and develop entry level employees who aspire to want to become future management leaders.
