    I worked at JHT full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Advancement, salary, excellent leadership from the top on down.

    Cons

    Lack of training contracts led to a lack of work.

    Advice to Management

    I loved it at JHT. I wish they could have won more contracts.

    I worked at JHT full-time

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, hands off management

    Cons

    Terrible communication, they treat you like a skill set (not a person), you're expected to go above and beyond with no compensation, very limited vacation time, no sick leave, no maternity leave, not a lot of room for growth.

    Honestly would not recommend to anyone

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication, stop pretending to care about your employees and actually care about them

    I worked at JHT full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    one of the only ways to work for NOAA is to be a contractor, so you don't have any choice but to work for whatever company has the contract at the time

    Cons

    the company does not do much for their employees compared to other contractor companies who work for the same agency. compared to other contractors in the same city working for the same agency the benefits are far from comparable.

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Loved the program manager who was fair and very professional. He would visit the site and take us to lunch, talk to us. Very open communication.

    Cons

    Don't show favoritism among co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    They should make sure butt-kissers are dealt with because it is improper and a legal issue for defense contractors to play golf and mingle outside of work with government higher-ups. They are very dangerous to co-workers as well. It's great that an employee gets along well with the customer but you need to enforce stringent rules on those who go over the line.

    I worked at JHT full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Small and personal company with a significant amount of interaction between upper management and lower level individuals. Open to unique ideas and willing to expand into new business sectors.

    Cons

    Fairly flat hierarchy with little room for upward mobility. Afflicted with constant bubble/burst growth and recession when it comes to personnel. Stagnant pay rate. Sometimes adopts a "Be happy you have a job" mentality when in a recession.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize contractors to mitigate the bubble/burst contract cycles. Better assessment of contract viability and long-term prospects to insure against furloughs, layoffs, etc.

    Pros

    Can spend your whole day watching netflix. Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Company cannot win a contract. Low pay. Employees running personal errands on company time, playing online games all day, watching movies at desks. Lack of work.

    Pros

    Friendly staff and approachable CEO

    Cons

    Low pay, remote managers who rely on daily phone calls to peers put as leads so this makes for discontent among team members. No matching 401 k. Paid time off is below industry standards. Benefits below average.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with remote project managers. They get tainted information from peers who have hidden agendas at the expense of other hard working and competent team members.

    "Worst managed government contracting firm in this country"

    Pros

    Flexible work scheduling.
    If the owner and his pet managers like you, you will have a job for as long as the company can manage to stay in business, regardless of your performance or abilities.

    Cons

    This company squandered the opportunities afforded it in the 8a program by ravaging every set-aside possible, developing no exit strategy, and leaving the program with an incomprehensible mixed bag of contracts that added up to NO core competencies. Upon 8a graduation, the company plummeted downhill at breakneck speed, going from 1,000 employees to probably less than 200. Former customers did not want them as backers to other still-eligible 8as, and they cannot compete against large businesses. Their only advantage is that they've lost so much business in the last couple of years, they now qualify once more as a SDVOSB.

    Advice to Management

    Let the current contracts run their course and close down.
