    Pros

    Management is 1200 miles away. They also leave you to do your job.
    The team here was great. 10 years with them.

    Cons

    When I started 10 years ago tis was a great company. Lots of small company benefits and raises. That has changed over the last 3 or so years. As the company grew and perks faded away. Just another contractor now.
    No other locations in Colorado.

    Advice to Management

    It was sad to see the small company environment fade away. If there is a way to bring it back this would be a great place to work again.

    I worked at Phacil, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    The team I worked with was great.

    Cons

    This is yet another midsized government contractor that deploys employees to its contracts, but doesn't treat them as employees, rather as billable assets. There is little sense that the company itself gives one flying foobar about the employees who make it "a company." Highly mismanaged in terms of relations with employees, and that's from several different angles (benefits, attention, camraderie, etc). Recently became an "employee owned company" which might be a good thing if that floats your boat. The stated principles of the company are words on paper.

    Advice to Management

    Your company extends well beyond HQ. Time to recognize that.

    Working on a government site is tough as the PM may not see all the good work you've done for the customer.

    People are amazing, good benefits, fun and giving culture

    Get all managers on the same page when it comes to the culture of the company.

    Pros

    Company is relatively small and you can get attention when you need it.

    Cons

    Management does not appear to truly care about the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your employees, benefits, and how they can succeed. Remove obstacles and managers who bully employees like John Gray.
