I worked at Stroz Friedberg full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Compensation and benefits are good overall. Nice bunch of people to work with. Appropriate work load.

Cons

Ignore the SF management propaganda just below this post. When I was employed at SF the president of EDG personally was involved in responding to negatively perceived Glassdoor reviews.
So, back to EDG: Management is WAY over their heads regarding their technical acumen. Lots of C-grade talent in a business that requires A-grade to grow. If you like working with technology circa 1995 by all means go.
Careerwise, nowhere to go in the organization. They love hiring outside mediocre talent for management positions. In my years there, not a single management position was filled internally.

Advice to Management

Stop talking business amongst yourselves and start talking technology with the developers and processors. Your business needs to use modern technology not a bunch of winform apps and spreadsheets.

    I worked at Stroz Friedberg full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Health insurance was great, hours were mostly flexible, offices provided free snacks/soda in the pantry.

    Cons

    Not flat enough given it's size, unqualified people were in charge of technical decisions way outside their skill level

    Advice to Management

    Find out from the people on the ground what is and isn't working; they tend to know, and relying on the telephone game from the middle managers is sinking the company.
