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

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers. Flexible working hours.

    Cons

    Started job as a software engineer. Of course I had to sit around for a month before getting clearance. I had to bring in my own laptop and sit in the conference room for a month. After a month, they brought me one of those little round desk from the break room to use. Parking in Roslyn is expensive. I had to pay for my own parking.

    Advice to Management

    Treat new employees better.

    I have been working at STG full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A typical Gov contract company that was once privately owned. I was an employee then when it was privately owned, but it's gone down hill from there. Middle management has been let go, quit, or whatever... but it's fairly unstable when it comes to middle management. I'm paid well and so I'm not complaining. Pays for certification/continued education, training, matching 401K, flex spending plan.

    Cons

    STG is small. If you lose your job, you will need to find your own and hopefully there is something that will fit you. If not, then you can pretty much be unemployed. Unlike bigger companies, they can place you in different place to keep talent. At one time STG had a bunch of overseas contracts, and now they have none. They need to look at getting more overseas contracts and start winning more contracts in general. Health, Vision, Dental is about industry standards as far as cost with United Health - it could be better and cheaper.

    Advice to Management

    STG's image of once a great company has dwindled quite a bit. Acquire more overseas/local contracts and companies to help build the company. STG needs to go back to being privately owned. Maintain the talent especially with those high level security clearances!

    Pros

    You know what to expect with a government contractor, and this was no exception. Generally a good company with decent benefits.

    Cons

    An ever-shifting management structure seemed to create a lot of uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    More contact with your employees in the field at various locations outside the DC area would go a long way to boost morale. Spot bonuses, or any other types of kudos too.

    Friendly and collegial atmosphere to work in when I first started working here 3 years ago.

    Too much uncertainty far as job security. Company is in the middle of making changes.

    Pros

    Good place if you are billable and the customer likes you. Salary is a good motivator. Good compensation if you negotiate well.

    Cons

    More people leave than join. Check their stock value over past year. Earnings is negative. Something is fishy. Too many changes in the top management. HR is totally inefficient and seems to work remote. Not employee oriented.

    Advice to Management

    What management? Go beyond your own Titles and empire building and get into the business of management

    I have been working at STG full-time

    Pros

    Company offers better benefits than many other federal contractors. Leadership on contract typically treat employees much better than corporate management but that is improving.

    Cons

    Company has gone through a special-purpose acquisition with new corporate management and new strategy. It'd be nice to know what that was.

    Advice to Management

    I realize you can't share everything with your employees, but sharing something of value about the future of the company would be beneficial.
