    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Everyone there is very nice, very bright, and generally passionate about what they do. Benefits are good (especially 401K and matching) and expected hours are very reasonable for consulting type job

    Cons

    Few opportunities for promotion or advancement, industry is suffering from Federal spending cuts and company is losing some of its big contracts. Management does not really help junior employees with career development or growth opportunities. Financial compensation is below-average. When my primary contract ended, experienced little support from the company in finding replacement work.

    Advice to Management

    Need better managers who are interested in cultivating their employees. Explore new company growth opportunities to improve employee retention.
