    Pros

    pay is ok, but for DC not very competitive.

    Cons

    Dell gear, no real services capability

    Advice to Management

    Be professional while interviewing folks. It is a small company, but courtesy is important and DC is a small community.

    Pros

    Govplace is a great place to work. The culture is fairly diverse, the people are smart, and is somewhat of a work hard/play hard organization. The company is small (around 80 people or so), but there is room to grow and management is generally open to understanding the needs and career goals of their team members. As with most organizations in the field, it's a fast paced environment but work/life balance is respected and acknowledged.

    There have been some significant contracts won which have put them in a good position to grow the company and brand in the industry. Most people have several + years of experience, however if you're looking for a company to grow and learn with, Govplace is definitely the place to do it.

    Cons

    Underrated in the industry. Needs help with brand recognition and awareness.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Asking the team for feedback, ideas and suggestions on company direction gives a sense of unity. Makes most people feel valuable.

    I have been working at Govplace full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Solid company with great people. The small company feel is an asset. I feel like I am part of an extended family when at work.

    Cons

    Government contracting is uncertain. Change is inevitable. Govplace could be more agile when adapting to changes in federal priorities on those contracts.

    Work hard play hard environment - all functions work well together, very collaborative environment compared to most I have worked at

    Cons

    What most small to mid size companies face ... how to run the business as it grows and matures

    Advice to Management

    Keep the positive atmosphere and open communication

    Pros

    Great company to develop and build on lacking skills. Great company culture where you can always find a helping hand.

    I worked at Govplace full-time

    Pros

    Good learning experience for newbies in the tech industry.
    One of the few public sector focused companies.

    Cons

    Senior sales people may feel limited due to company size and resources.
    Growth limited by weak leadership at upper management and above.
    No true company strategy - at least not shown/communicated effectively by the current field sales people.

    Advice to Management

    You need to be more accountable to your employees and communicate better the company strategy and direction. In order to grow at full potential, more experienced leadership may be needed at the highest levels.
