      One of America's Best ...

      Aug 26, 2012 - Senior Manager in Arlington, VA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Great work environment - Most in leadership were excellent ... the few who weren't caused some issues, but they were eventually replaced. - Excellent benefits - Leaders ensured workforce was aware of company's focus, vision and strategy

      Cons

      - Long hours if involved in producing proposals. I regularly worked 70-80 hour weeks when we were working on submitting a proposal. Nice annual salary suddenly becomes a poor hourly salary when working these hours. Fortunately, it was only 3 months or so out of the year. - Retired Army generals are not always the best action/project managers. Particularly those who surround themselves with an entourage of "worker bees" - people who work hard to cover the general's glaring lack of knowledge. - Upward mobility was lacking in most areas.

      Pros

      Less stressful work environment, Good 401K match and big company with multiple locations who wants to move.

      Cons

      Judgemental manager don't care about employees at least the one who are onsite at DuPont. Bias attitude towards non-white employees and poor pay scale for them. A lot of bad politics involved. No new excited projects in this office.
