    I worked at Rome Research Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Supervisors at every level were very considerate, real people. No type of cutthroat or favoritism to be found.

    Cons

    Upward movement as an employee isn't exactly lightning fast, but it is feasible. Promotions are expected and regular as you develop expertise.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    While their benefits aren't great, they aren't terrible either. They've medical, dental, vision, and 401k. They'll even pay you a little fringe benefit should you opt to not use their medical insurance.

    Cons

    You will be nothing more than a number to them. Any work issues and the like, they don't care. At best, they will mitigate the issue so that it's not a problem for them. At worse, they cut you loose faster than a vegan with diarrhea.

    Being paid what you are worth is the end goal of every employee; Rome will ensure that you are paid well below industry standard in an effort to save face with the DoD on their contracts. What better way to provide an excellent service by cutting pay to those who provide that service!

    Pros

    Some fellow employees are friendly.

    Cons

    The new leadership here is dishonorable, they are cunning and deceitful. They also have inexperienced managers who are not qualified to lead small or large teams to achieving success. People are thrown into positions based off being a next door neighbor, not that they are qualified capable. It has caused a cancerous unqualified environment. Most business models here are done off the back of a lunchtime napkin. This is not a professional organization and they lack class.

    Advice to Management

    You need to treat people with respect, honesty and intergrity should be you sole focus. The business lines are too narrow. Business is drying up. The iceberg has melted.

    Pros

    There very good at bring you in the door the truth is they may defer from the original agreement.

    Cons

    Pay attention to the information that is given verbally and document every conversation and meeting. You are trained and then stripped of you value for skills and hourly wage.

    Advice to Management

    stick to what the offer that's presented and the employee will not leave listen to the information disturbed and stop replacing employee for inexpensive fresh out the military employee they hold only a quality to get a job not keep one over a long period.

    I have been working at Rome Research Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Like I said; The pay is fair for the location. It's a good place to get your feet wet after the military. Once you learn everything about the site you are better off applying your skills with a company that has the opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    It's a union shop with no union presence. The only exception is when the contract is close to expiration. That's when they step up to the plate for more pay. The management here will not have your back when it comes to conflict resolution between a customer or the military. They just fire you. Even if you have evidence in your favor....they fire you. One more thing...the benefits....You are better off buying your own medical insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for the people that work for you. They work hard for you....you should work hard for them. Stop the segregation between corporate and contractors. Keep up to date about openings in the corporate office. If a better position opens up tell your employees about it. If you do all of this you might not lose so many talented people.
