    Pros

    Stress-free work environment. Access to experienced and knowledgeable current and former federal government employees. Great place to develop basic professional skills

    Cons

    Work can be slow at times. Its a project-based company, so if there aren't a lot of projects on the bill, the office seems slow. Not a lot of top-down communication. Almost no upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Engage lower-level employees more actively.
