    I worked at TASC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company Name is easy to spell

    Cons

    Company Benefits contributions from employees for health insurancea are more expensive than purchasing individual insurances.
    Since getting spun off from Northrop Grumman and sold to venture capitalist KKR, the company has been shedding experienced and skilled engineers and moved from a well-respected systems integrator to a software coding and systems administration shop.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation and benefits are no longer competitive with engineering skills in the market. Employee stability is a thing of the past. Layoffs are de rigueur these days. The experience and skills level within the company are falling as is the reputation once claimed as a leader in complex engineering solutions.

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

    Pros

    I really enjoyed a lot of the people i worked with. Lower level management was great and I really enjoyed my direct coworkers.

    Cons

    The higher up the management chain, the more painful they were to work with. In the end it came down to company regulations and rules before people. Due to being self-taught, i was doing the same level work of my peers but i was being paid 1/4 to 1/3 that they were. This was due to company guidelines that were non-negotiable.
