    I have been working at Phacil, Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In spite of what some of the employees at contracts are saying IE: Chandler, DHS which is ending and some employees are disgruntled, the company is a great company and I find the opposite with senior management and executive. They are very hands on and care about employees.

    Cons

    Yes a lot is expected, but that is because we are a growing company. Perks we used to have were stopped to cut costs IE: snacks, summer lunches, bonuses, etc...

    Advice to Management

    Keep being proactive and seek employee feedback and input. Listen to what employees are suggesting.

    I have been working at Phacil, Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In our careers, we spend many hours at work and we develop a “work family”. In doing so, there are relationships, ideas, and communications that happen to make it manageable. During my time at Phacil, I have these opportunities with all levels of the company - from CEO to coworker. It is not often you find a company who takes time to make the environment into a “work family”, rather than just “work”.

    Understanding in building, we sometimes do not achieve the result desired? There are communications which do not go as planned. It is in those moments when we rise up and review our challenges and work together to ensure we have the proper resources to achieve our goals - together! After all isn’t that what “family” does...Phacil is an employee owned company and it shows!!

    Cons

    There are always improvements to be made; however, to list them here would not be helpful as there are continuous improvements happening weekly.

    Advice to Management

    Continue striving for the best and working with everyone to do so!


  4. "Senior Manager"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    The benefits are inline with most companies for its size.

    Cons

    There are two main decision markers now that the company is employee owned, the CEO and the CFO. As one reviewer put it “most employees will not benefit as they will not be employed with Phacil long enough!” Neither care too much for their employees and the companies run like North Korea. The last reviewer was wrong when he/she stated they were disgruntled because the contract has ended. If you ask any employee in Chandler awaiting the protest period to end they will tell you they can’t wait to work for the new contractor. As for the other contracts, they have major performance issues and need qualified employees and not the lowest paid individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees well and they will treat your customers well!!

    Pros

    Not worth applying for a job

    Cons

    No advancement, management to include the CEO is not concerned with employees, culture or ethics. Just growth.

    Phacil’s main source of revenue comes from government contracts. The government is getting wise to their under performance and lack of management.

    Advice to Management

    You can’t provide insight to people who know it all!

    Excellent HR, IT, and financ e groups. Upper management gives opportunities for all in hiring and promotions. Great ideas on team spirit and the Wow execution.

    Watch out for the shirkers who hide behind EEO fairness.

    I have been working at Phacil, Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been working at Phacil for just over 3 years, and I don't plan to leave anytime soon! Phacil is a large company but it has that small company feel to it. There is a real sense of teamwork here, and if you have a question, there is always someone to help you find the answer. This is the first company that I have worked for where I feel like I have a voice and that my opinions and ideas are heard, and that I am not just another cog in a machine. I have a great manager who communicates well with our team and provides us with opportunities to learn new skills and help us grow professionally. Overall, the people working at HQ are friendly, talented, and hard-working, and I like coming into work every day.

    Cons

    As a follow-up to my final sentence in the previous section, I DO like coming into work every day..but I DO NOT enjoy the congested commute both to and from Tysons Corner. The benefits are good but not great.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and make sure we don't ever lose that "small business" feel that makes Phacil so great!
