    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    If you live in Loudoun, its probably the closest govt IT company to your house
    Plenty of parking
    Lots of younger professionals (could also be a con)

    Cons

    Senior Management is an old school boys club. Better play golf or learn quick!
    Most of the company's focus is on hiring high ranking ex-military for their connections, not ideas
    Secondary focus is hiring fresh out of college in order to low ball and offer cheaper benefits
    Layoffs about every few years (ask to see how long the most senior HR person has been with the company. They're the last to go after they've given the bad news to others)
    Lots of lawsuits - watch your personal communications

    Advice to Management

    Just because it wasn't your idea, doesn't mean it isn't a good idea. Also, get rid of the catty older women who contribute nothing to the bottom line.

    Pros

    Telos operates like a family run shop, so everyone eventually gets to know everyone.
    Benefits are surprisingly pleasing.
    Flex time is accepted by senior management, win-win for everyone.

    Cons

    * As a firm specializing in technical solutions, the workplace feels and looks extremely antiquated.
    * Most of the business groups are failing and are kept afloat by only one or two groups. That means money made in those groups, goes to the company to fill holes elsewhere. Not much money remains in the group. Means little self-improvement is made.
    * Management is stuck in the old-school way of doing business. They're afraid to suggest new ways of doing business to senior management, leading to the most ridiculous, convoluted solutions to be created. It's embarrassing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making technical decisions without consulting the young/smart people.
