    I have been working at SRA International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Until my contract and background investigation with another company is complete, SRA pays me a salary.

    Cons

    Salaries are not in line with all other contracting firms. There remains bias and discrimination against women. SRA international demands loyalty from employees but provides none in return. Don't get a disabling disease and expect the company to do the right thing. You cost them money and they will find a way to get rid of you. In the 15 years I've worked at SRA I witnessed long time, ultra loyal employees become disabled with SRA providing no assistance to that employee who literally killed themselves on behalf of the company. Thousands of hours of overtime work, brutal hours and stress levels, all mean nothing to SRA management and bottom line profit and stock price. Employees should know this going into SRA and only give what is paid for and no more than that. Very unacceptable.

    Advice to Management

    Stop believing your own marketing. I am very involved in marketing and aware of the misleading images SRA projects -- to clients, employees, and the public. Profit drives everything.

    A lot of mobility through the company. Allowed to work on projects and come back to growth afterwords.

    Attrition is the biggest issue for the company and there have been solutions put in place to fix this with their pathways programs but more could still be done.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees better benefits and practice what you preach. Start taking complaints seriously and getting rid of managers causing the issues.
