    Pros

    Leadership is very aware of their people and don't treat people like numbers. Like most companies primarily in the federal contracting arena there are cost pressures being forced by the government but the company has always been very transparent about it and has gone out of their way to make accommodations for individual employees when warranted. Quite a diverse workforce as well. Customer and employee interactions are very open and transparent and people really do have their customer's bests interest in mind. I have never felt pressure to cut any corner or sacrifice quality for the sake of the bottom line. Very accessible management that will always listen to an issue or opportunity. Not every company has the resources to take action but I've never had a problem getting my voice heard or generating interest in something new. Wish I could make a 4 1/2 star rating because the company is great but there are still a few areas for improvement.

    Cons

    Not as many opportunities to push new technologies as I'd like, but that is always a challenge due to the the nature of federal contracting. The communication channels between people working in the same disciplines is mostly left up to employees to initiate (which some people like) but they don't have forums or birds-of-a-feather type initiatives to encourage collaboration between groups.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more tools and opportunities that encourage collaboration within disciplines as well as across the workforce. Adopt new technologies faster and offer more social opportunities that are open to all employees.

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, Pleasant CEO, Nice social parties, good benefits, nice size company, funded contracts, prestigious office, supportive staff and human resources.

    Cons

    This company is fine if you are happy in the job you were hired to fill. However, if there are problems between you and the customer, the company does little to resolve them. They make no effort to relocate unsuccessful placements or enhance a person's occupational opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employees happy. Move them around if they get stale.

    I worked at Sabre Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great salary, which I think is primarily due to most of their employees working onsite, so they have very low overheads at their corporate offices.

    Cons

    Since 80-90% of their employment opps are based on contracts, your job will likely be over when the contract is over.

    Pros

    Unless you're desperate, stay away form this company. They specialize in facilitating a race to the bottom . Company engages in discrimination of minorities.

    Cons

    Company took over contract by underbidding the competition by a significant percentage. They then cut the salaries of the existing employees by that same amount..

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect. Do not micro manage. Pay a decent wage. Eliminate the Marquis de Sade style of management.

    Pros

    Great job for recent college graduates, but may want to look somewhere else after gaining experience.

    Low pay, no communications, bad benefits, and loyalty does not pay.

    Stop treating your emplyees as just a number, and restore benefits.
