    I worked at Paragon Technology Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paragon is a great small business to be a part of. They support a flexible work schedule that contributes to a work/life balance. Paragon's leadership team "walks the talk" and leads by example. They are employee focused with strong benefits - healthcare, time-off, retirement package, etc. Pargaon supports the development of it's employees through tuition reimbursement and if possible, will allow employees to cross-train and contribute to other roles within the company to further develop skill sets - which is mutually beneficial. The work environment is supportive and my manager was great - providing support, but not micromanaging me. I felt empowered to make decisions and facilitate the client's success. I enjoyed my time with this team and felt like I was able to not only contribute, but also learn and grow in this role. I hope to work with the Paragon team at some point again in the future!

    Cons

    Somewhat limited opportunity to grow within the company immediately depending on what you want to do and timing because the company is small. However, long term, I do believe there is strong potential for this company to provide greater opportunities and more cross training opportunities to employees in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work to provide opportunities for employees to grow within the company.

    Pros

    Focused on employee well being. Open communication with management. Good benefits package for the size of the company. Company shares success with employees through bonuses.

    Cons

    Infrequent communication to employees on company status and health. Lack a clear business capture process that gives employees opportunities for participation.

    I have been working at Paragon Technology Group full-time

    Pros

    Paragon was bought by 4 former employees in 2014 and they are trying to do the right things to make the Company better for it's stakeholder's (employees, customers...).
    There is an open door policy that gives direct access to the executive staff. It is a fun, sometimes crazy, place to work and I enjoy what I do. The employees are great to work with and are very helpful.

    Cons

    Any company that has been bought and is now under new ownership is going to have growing pains. With that said, I will reserve judgment until a later date to give them a chance to find their path.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing forward and create a mission/vision that everyone can get behind.

    Pros

    Most of management is caring and as defense contractors, they really try hard to keep employees happy. Management is approachable and they create a good working environment.

    Cons

    Not all management is competent. They also seem to have problems with business development...the key to survival in this business. Zero (relevant) training and development opportunities and there are no paths for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the deadweight management, spend some money on relevant training/development and get some actual business development professionals working for the company.
