    I have been working at Martek Global Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company tries really hard to keep the employees happy financially, whether it's through tuition assistance, annual pay increases, or promotions where available

    Cons

    Martek is great, but some of the customers you could end up supporting can end up being difficult to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to take care of employees and they will continue to take care of you.

    Their purpose is nobel and for a just cause. To help veterans and their medical care become more effecient & effective and have a beautiful new functioning facility for their care.

    Cons

    Contracting position on site at the VA, conditions are difficult, the building is old, space is gloomy. The position they list for an Exec Admin & the job duties are not the duties you are given upon employment

    I have been working at Martek Global Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    From Day 1 at Martek I have felt right at home. Not only am I allowed to do my job without being micromanaged, but I have been trusted to take on more responsibility and been able to grow my skills.

    Cons

    Working in the ever evolving world of government contracting can lead to additional stress. The highs are great but the lows can really hurt sometimes. It is important to keep a level head.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to show the employees how much you value their efforts.

    I worked at Martek Global Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    --I was able to negotiate a great salary, over 100k
    --Front office staff was mostly friendly and communicative

    Cons

    --The contract I was put on was full of unqualified / minimally qualified people, and the govt was clearly not happy with Martek's performance. Supervisor was overly emotional had a very combative relationship with govt management. I felt like my job was in jeopardy as soon as I walked in the door (and of course they never mentioned these issues when I was hired) because of the poor quality of other people on the contract.

    Advice to Management

    --Be more careful with the leadership you hire for the contracts

    I worked at Martek Global Services full-time

    Pros

    Friendly, Responsive, Team-oriented. Offered me my first job out of college and the benefits and salary was much better than any other offers I was receiving. Everything went well for the 3 years I was with Martek and I made some really good connections.

    Cons

    Same as any contracting job - you worry about whether your contract will continue. Also, I was in the contractor position during the 2013 Gov't Shutdown which was hard to be out of work and not getting paid during that time (and unlike our federal counterparts, we did not get back pay)
