    Pros

    From an IT perspective you get to play with some pretty new and cool technology. Stuff is well documented and there are some very smart people.
    Most coworkers are really friendly and just about everyone is extremely helpful when needed.

    Benefits are really good and vacation policy is GREAT. Culture is great as well.

    Definitely would recommend it to anyone.

    Overall the company is great.

    Cons

    Can be very political at times, frustratingly so. Agencies that are under the company tend to have a huge push and influence on the direction of the company, regardless if it is in the best interest of the company or not.

    This is more of a neutral, but raises are about normal. Never spectacular.

    Some (very small amount) coworkers are more about just getting by and do the bare minimum.

    Can be a little too much overreach from top level management for decisions that many of them do not understand fully; this is simply due to the fact that they do not deal with the tech like the engineers and admins do. That being said, it can be extremely frustrating sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Let the technological people do their work, there is a little too much over reach. Really frustrating.

    Pros

    GREAT Company to work for. They are really about the employee. Wonderful medical benefits, generous time off, Holiday party, many celebrations throughout the year that employees plan and participate in, lots of volunteer opportunities in the community through work, depending what team you end up on the training and support is great. They will promote from within but you have to show your willingness to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Not too many opportunities to move up.
    Pay tends to be lower than other jobs of similar responsibility in the metro area.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on showing your appreciation to your employees. It does not go unnoticed!!
    Create some opportunities for people to move up and learn new skills.

    The CEO is truly committed to Diversity and Inclusion and walks the talk
