No opinion of CEO

I worked at TASC as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

I would imagine that there are several good reasons to work for TASC. I wouldn't know of any.

Cons

I was a sub-contractor to TASC working out of the Lorton, VA facility. I was a semi-permament sub-contractor with the hope of going permament eventually. Not only was I discarded, the TASC employees were VERY unsupportative of me and my team. I was dismissed right after the beginning of the year with my TASC management telling me that I had "done all they needed me to do" and that I "bascially worked myself out of a job" 8 months of hard work and late hours and multiple cross-country trips and I'm summarily dismissed because I was a sub-contractor instead of a full time TASC employee.

Advice to Management

COMMUNICATE! My team and I made SEVERAL official requests for direction and made multiple plans of how we thought our work should progress (which was a task outside of our scope) ultimately to have all our plans tossed aside and go with a completely random plan that was never in our initial purview. I can't imagine that the folks that are still there are actually accomplishing anything.

    I have been working at TASC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Leadership making significant effort to improve culture, work environment, and career development paths

    Cons

    Govt contracting environment faces significant challenges and the trend in pricing (and hence compensation/benefits) is still negative

    Advice to Management

    Continue current course. Keep up the improved communications.
