    I have been working at NJVC full-time

    Pros

    Middle management takes care of their people. They are very supportive of national guard and reservists. Highly skilled co-workers make it all worth while.

    Cons

    Policies changes have come down from the parent company that were not as good as the previous policies. This story was that this would make us more competitive. Very little training and no new contracts.

    Advice to Management

    Win more contracts...

    I worked at NJVC full-time

    Pros

    It's a job but no future.

    Cons

    There's nothing good about this company. It'll be disbanded and it has already been moved to another segment. It wasn't winning contracts.

    I worked at NJVC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is generally flexible with work schedules and "comfort of life" policies. The pay for most positions is often above average for IT services in defense. Best work-life balance I have seen in the industry.

    Cons

    Practices and culture are based on when the company was formed and did not face competition. Too much management and not enough delegation of authority. Across the board, the organization is slow to change even for provable improvements.

    Strategize, BD needs to win contracts, don't discount the talent you already have in-house, challenge employees, don't play favorites, balance the workload, hold individuals accountable for their actions.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about team members
    Parent company needs to get out of the way

    Pros

    Salary was more than expected

    Good ol boy network keeps you from moving upward in the company. Only way to get a promotion is to apply for a new job that was already promised to somebody else.
