    Pros

    I worked with excellent leadership from the division level on up.

    Cons

    Now all of that talent is gone. There are some good folks left though that made it into the GDIT merger.

    Pros

    Wide range of contracts to work on.

    Cons

    The company is big on their corporate culture, however, many of its employees work on client-site so and not only are they expected to be apart of the SRA culture but in some cases the client's culture as well. Usually this isn't a problem until the client expects you to participate in their company gatherings, picnics, trainings, etc.... during business hours but that is not covered in your contract. So you risk angering a client or not getting paid for several hours.

    I worked at SRA International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    SRA International was a solid place to work with many competent layers of management. They seek out and employ talented people. The company is adaptable in these sometimes unpredictable times.

    Cons

    There are way too many layers of management which slows down decision-making to a crawl. Promotions are not necessarily based on merit; those who play the system and brown nose upper management move ahead faster than those who actually deserve the promotions. Annual reviews dwell on the negative in order to keep any salary increase to a minimum. There is little interaction between departments and since the company is spread out, it is difficult to get to know your remote colleagues in person. Incompetence in middle management is accepted by SRA International which makes for added frustration amongst the worker bees.

    Advice to Management

    Realize the vast wealth of untapped potential in all SRA International employees as opposed to focusing on promoting the highly vocal backstabbers who trample on their colleagues and then quickly move their way up through the ranks.
