Pros

There are incredible opportunities for growth, networking, and career advancement. The management team is responsible, knowledgeable, and open to new ideas regarding the company's direction. Similarly, they are open to understanding where your preference is for a balance of the management vs. technical tasks available.

Cons

Each program manager is managing somewhere between 10 and 20 projects at any given time. While this can be a great opportunity, it can also lead to stress and the need to prioritize. Perfection is not always possible.

Advice to Management

Need to organize during this growth period in order to prevent chaos further down the line. The firm's culture could be bridged a bit between the younger and older generations; and additional benefits (bonuses, etc...) might be nice.

    Pros

    This is a company that until recently was a small business, and it has maintained its corporate ethos of quality and responsibility for delivering results. It has a young staff pool, and a very experienced top management team. It is now going after and winning larger contracts.

    Cons

    It is still feeling its way with respect to internal policies; a lot of decisions are ad hoc, with little reflection. Its business model depends a lot on getting 60-80 hour weeks out of junior staff,, and letting them burn out. This is because they consistently under-budget the projects to win the bids, then do what they can to try to deliver. As a result, there is a lot of turn over.

    Advice to Management

    A better work-life balance would be the most important change.
