    Pros

    This is a great place to learn and grow, as Halfaker has a strong push for both company and individual improvement on a constant basis. The people are fun and results-oriented. There are many company engagement events.

    Cons

    Change management could be much better; company policy changes are communicated on a weekly basis in a way that obscures them, so that if you aren't actively trying to keep up you would not notice. Program Managers in particular face a steep uphill climb when it comes to understanding all the nuances of various policies.

    Advice to Management

    -Communicate better about policy changes

    Pros

    Halfaker is an extremely rewarding place to work and is a company that is seeing tremendous growth over the last several years. Halfaker is very mission focused and their vision of Continuing to Serve is what drives the company and culture. The company goes above and beyond to host awesome activities so that everyone can get together in one place and have some fun. The Holiday party is always a blast and has been hosted in suites at the Verizon Center for Caps/Wizards games and this year they managed to secure the brand new MGM National Harbor. They also host a family event in the spring, typically at Nats Park as well as numerous happy hours throughout the year. Giving back to the community is also important to the company culture so there are multiple opportunities throughout the year to give back to local organizations. The company attracts really great people to its team which makes it a joy to come to work everyday. There's no doubt that Halfaker is going to continue to grow and be successful in years to come, thanks to it's great culture, employees, and driven leadership team.

    Cons

    I can't think of any. If you don't enjoy a fast paced environment, then you may not thrive at first

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
