    I have been working at OST Global Solutions (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Provide false promise about length of the Project contact. The pay is low and benefits are not good. Full time employees are treated as contractors and sent home with very short notice. There is no job security.

    Cons

    Not a great place to work.

    Pros

    Gained a lot of experience, co workers are very intelligent, looks good on resume.

    Cons

    Was lied to during recruitment process... Was told internship would last 3-4 months, I have been an intern for the past 9 months and I still am not considered an "official employee" I do not get benefits. There is an communication error within this company

    Invest in your employees, even your interns.

    Pros

    Dynamic and growing. Still in it's infancy and they are getting their feet wet.

    Cons

    Management rewards "bad" employees who affect performance scores and seem to tolerate and even promote over more worthy candidates. Management does not back their start performers and have caused many to leave for better opportunities elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Start holding "bad" employees accountable. Start promoting and helping your Rock stars achieve even greater heights and be better Managers.

    I worked at OST Global Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small company benefits but tough to get anywhere in certain programs. Good company culture and growth potential but hard to do when many contracts are on the clients sight.

    Cons

    Small company, so benefits are lacking to complete with the bigger firms. Lack of mentorship and training opportunities didn't offer a benefit for myself

    I worked at OST Global Solutions as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can learn a lot about the government contracting industry, how a small to mid-sized company operates and other working experiences, depending on your position. The people here are friendly and even though they will not sit next to you all the time to show you how to do things, they're always available for questions. The CEO is very easygoing and I am so glad that I worked under her. The company has comfortable working environment in a nice building. Schedule is very flexible, especially for interns who might have schedule conflicts. Many people complain that this is an unpaid internship but it's not the case. First, most companies do so nowadays. Second, why would you complain when that is what you would have agreed on when you apply for the internship. Finally, isn't the purpose of getting an internship to gain experiences?

    Cons

    It can be a little hard to adapt to the working culture at first. During the first week I had a lot to read but it was all about government contracts and bidding. However, they are implementing guidance for new employees so things are getting better.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if the company can document how things are done so that new employees can adapt to the working culture at OST Global Solutions quicker and more easily.
