No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good place to work, has pretty decent benefits. The place tries hard to let you balance personal life with proffesional life.

Cons

They incorrectly decided to move to a warehouse by the airport. Has seriously created an issue with those that live north and in recruiting new persons.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The company has a couple of good Group Managers (not in Manassas however) and some good DIvision Managers, who really keep the place functioning in spite of their current business challenges. If your thinking of working here, don't take a position in Manassas.

    Cons

    The company used to excell at one thing, getting government earmarks (sole sourced contracts frequently with no backup qualifications). The buyout by Ultra and the economic downturn ended all that, and not they are struggling to survive. All that matters to Ultra is the bottom line, and since financial goals are not being met, they have no funds to invest in people or technology that could contribute to growth. According to the President, there are only two critical functions - accounting and bizdev - This tells me that top management doesn't even understand where the value in the company is and why the remaining customers are still with them. If your interested in being part of a sinking ship with an outside shot at a turnaround then this is the place for you.
