    I have been working at Halfaker and Associates full-time

    Pros

    I like coming to work every day because of the smart and dedicated people I work with and because of the great mission of the Company. At Halfaker, my work matters and every day I feel like I am making a difference through all the exciting projects I get to work on supporting both the military and our Veterans. And you can't beat the Company events we have!

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at Halfaker and Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was good as well as the benefits.

    Cons

    Unorganized, overstretched senior management that doesn't support there workers. High turnover due to management issues.

    Advice to Management

    If your senior management is too occupied to know what middle management is dealing with then you have no idea what your work force is doing.

    I have been working at Halfaker and Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    * Remote work. This was the main reason I came on board
    * Flexible schedule
    * Supervisors that recognize and praise you for your completion of tasks

    Cons

    * A little stingy with purchasing technology. By that, I mean not really willing to spend money on infrastructure that could help grow the company in the software development field

    Advice to Management

    Continue to move forward into the technology field, but don't forget that you should be prepared to bite the bullet in purchasing hardware/software to grow your business. It is a necessity to truly continue forward.
