    Pros

    The Germantown facility is a nice facility on lush green lawn and located right off of 1-270. The are plenty off office space, less cubicles than the facilty in downtown D.C.

    Cons

    Lack of new technology, a server with constant gliches and a limited supply of resources makes it hard to get work done at times. Average age of the workforce are age 55 and up, so progressive thinking is at a standstill in many departments. Office politics (you find this everywhere).

    Advice to Management

    Dont be afraid of change and new ideas. Fight for your employees advancement. Consider 10 hour shifs as an alternate work schedule for all not some.


  2. "Great work life balance, a variety of positions available but lots of competition for a single slot."
