  1. "Check back later"

    Pros

    The people are great to work with! Mostly a casual work environment. The hours are more flexible than most, as the company is more interested in getting the job done. The office building is still very new, in a newly-built Reston Town Center area. The pay is good, with the full set of benefits.

    Cons

    The company is going through layoffs due to a downturn in business, so they are not hiring anytime soon. Check back when they start launching again.


  2. "OK as a stepping stone"

    Pros

    Location, most people are great to work with, decent salaries

    Cons

    Very limited upward mobility (~65 employees), bad work/life balance, terrible telecommuting opportunities, poorly run HR department

    Advice to Management

    Break away from "good old boys" thinking left over from Lockheed days. Trust employees to complete work in a virtual environment from home. Create more solid HR policies that apply across the board and don't make exceptions for "favorite" employees.
