    Pros

    I have worked with SE for over 10 years. SE is a top notch company. Bring your A game to this company and you will be rewarded. Caring for their employees is a priority. Managers are approachable and want their team to be productive and happy. Very rare to find companies like SE anymore!

    Cons

    Most employees are on site or work remotely. And, while this is a huge advantage for me personally, sometimes it is tough to stay connected. Sr. Management works hard to plan events to pull everyone together.

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

    Pros

    The mission of the company is to help Homeland Security organizations to accomplish their mission. A pretty cool reason to get up in the morning. Mission is set by the CEO and carried out through the management chain.

    Cons

    Small Company with some of the limitations that exist with small Companies. Benefits are very standard, and 401k match would be nice. Otherwise pretty solid.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on our customers mission. Get deeper in to the organizations we support in order to understand exactly how we can help them in their mission.

    Very dynamic working environment. Employees work very hard to satisfy customers who are very demanding. The ability to be involved in several tasks simultaneously is challenging but rewarding.

    Pros

    The management team works very hard and genuinely cares for employees. High caliber people across the company with strong commitment to the homeland security mission.

    Cons

    Typical small business challenges. Suspended 401(k) match, technical training opportunities are lacking. Virtual company (no offices) is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Tough market right now but things appear to be improving, hang in there.

    Good first impression, but not lasting. One concern pointed and you are ousted from the club.

    Executive level make promises they cannot / do not want to keep.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Reasonably good benefits for a small company.

    Employee is not respected for their talents, but is a warm seat to fill.

    I worked at SE Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employees are challenged and allowed to grow. The CEO takes chances by showing trust in his employees, encouraging creativity, and ownership.

    Cons

    This is a top-heavy company with a lot of supervisors. Employees have to spend a lot of time supporting the company with writing proposals and working on two contracts at the same time (though, not often). But, this does enhance resumes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at SE Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compensated and treated well. Managers are not intrusive and allow for employees to be rewarded based on merit.

    Cons

    With it being a small company, the insurance is more expensive than a larger company. Other than that, no cons whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Although I have worked for many companies who have sworn that they are employee centric, SE SOlutions has proven again and again that they are truely vested in their employees, and if you give them reasonible time to address the concern, they have always attempted to do within reason what they could for that employee.

    Cons

    Almost all of the work they hold requires a government clearance. These clearances are difficult to get any more, and even the best of people have some small issue (could be finanicial even) that could flag them from a clearance, thus making SE Solutions not an option to be considered for employment.

    Advice to Management

    None really. They have a great working business model, and have proven themselves year after year. They were ranked number 28 on Washington Technology’s Fast 50 small business Government Contractors 2008 list.
