Pros

In a high-tech, low-cost area of the country with good employment prospects. Small company where you can make a difference...first and mid-level managers and employees work together as a team to collectively accomplish the mission.

Cons

Higher management has peformed virtually all job functions at some point and has same expectations of competency for most employees from the start. Singular focus is on business side; being a "fun place to work" is not a consideraton at all.

Advice to Management

Demonstrate genuine caring for employees. The company is small enough...manage by walking around, yet without micromanaging. Consider "Support Staff" personnel as important as the "line" (revenue-generators). Recongize all levels of employees for their daily contributions, in the form of praise. Display real lightheartedness and approachability. Realize when there are positions with multiple personnel turnovers in a short span (e.g. a couple years or less), concerted management methodology reviews are essential. Realize a great benefits package is "not the holy grail"...truly caring for employees, team-building events, and making a company "a place employees are proud to say they work at and enjoy coming to work" weigh significantly for many current and prospective employees.

    I worked at Systems Studies and Simulations full-time

    Pros

    Matches 401K at 7%... this might be the only good thing I have to say

    Cons

    Terrible Management, everyone underpaid, no room for advancement, the CEO fires someone every week so don't even think you'll last longer than 5 months. Even so, someone also quits every 2 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    If they paid their employee's and treated them well maybe people wouldn't quit so often.
