    I have been working at Halfaker and Associates full-time

    Pros

    - Sharing in the success of a fast-growing woman-owned, 8a, SDVOSB.
    - The company has the processes and know-how of a large enterprise, while retaining the "small company" culture and feel.
    - Great relationship with clients; leadership team is very competent and well-trusted.
    - Location of Headquarters in Shirlington Village makes it commuter-friendly and very walkable.

    Cons

    - Working for a small business means sometimes you have to wear multiple hats.

    Advice to Management

    - Keep doing a great job to promote excellence!

    Its a fast-paced high growth Company which may not be for everyone.

    I have been working at Halfaker and Associates full-time

    Pros

    Company is setup for incredible success and growth, some of the hardest working and dedicated people I've ever worked with, excellent benefits and pay, high recruiting/hiring standards, strong CEO vision, sees employees as employees of the company vs. contract employees, unwavering commitment to Veterans and serving the community, great company-wide events like Holiday Party

    Cons

    Limited visibility if you don't work at Headquarters, Managers seem to be overworked and expected to take on more than their job descriptions might indicate

    Advice to Management

    Keep prioritizing your people as you continue to be successful and grow, don't compromise when it comes to maintaining and improving company culture and employee satisfaction

    I have been working at Halfaker and Associates full-time

    Pros

    The best fringe benefits in all of the National Capital Region hands down. Halfaker company parties and community service events are always enjoyable.

    They do a really nice job of recognizing employee accomplishments in their weekly news letter.

    There are several opportunities to receive bonuses such as candidate recruitment and outstanding performance.

    Cons

    My project does not have an on-site company supervisor to see the great work we are providing to our client. I feel that I am at a disadvantage to those who do. Especially when it comes time for performance review and annual compensation.

    I worked at Halfaker and Associates full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great support staff who genuinely care about their contractors/employees, listen to them, and support them; great pay; great events and parties; only hire exceptional people, which challenges you to grow as a professional; growing company with great future potential

    Cons

    Unless you're HQ staff, it's still contract work, so no guarantee of employment if your particular contract ends (but if you're terrific... they typically find a way to keep you)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to: listen to your employees; show them you care about them as people; keep them informed on contract and HQ big picture and how they fit into it; and keep hiring great people. So basically, keep doing exactly what you're doing!

    I'll really miss being part of such a great company.
