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

    Pros

    The upper management including Scott Seavers and Kay Curling took the time to know my assets as an employee both from my resume and by personal interviews during the time of my employment with Salient CRGT. I respect and appriciate the personal element at this company.

    Cons

    Our project was joint effort with another contractor which hired my colleagues at a higher starting salary and admittedly perhaps a lessor benefits package, and the follow-up contract was handed by officials at Randolf AFB to the company which succeeded Salient CRGT and the others without entertaining any bids from the existing contractors.

    Pros

    Depends on the project, and position. Pay rates in my case. They might move you to another contract if your position gets cut.

    Cons

    Inexperienced lower middle management. Disrespect to talents due to an ignorance.
    The desire to please a demanding customer supercedes basic moral principles, and ethics.
    For example : lies and distortion are considered to be normal. Along with disrespect, micro management, and conflicts creation - ignorance demonstration creates sometime unbearable situations. Often employees get provoked to become emotional, and losing their jobs. One would believe that lessons learned will prevent such incidents in the future, not at all - they hire somebody else, and repeat the same mistakes. Think twise to accept their offer.

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

    Pros

    It is an income.
    Casual work environment

    Cons

    Managers are incapable of managing the current staff, one is a bully handing out ultimatums, the other can't control his/her emotions and has outbursts daily.
    No one is there for new employees, most are left to fend for them selves.
    You do have to be in the inner circle for an easy ride.
    The company Salient CRGT uses to run the new employee back ground checks are highly unreliable, leaving the employee respsonsible.

    Pros

    Great project team and flexible, understanding client. Team outings help to keep the stress to a minimum and it feels like a stable work environment.

    Cons

    Has become less personal as company has grown, does not feel like there is as much of an emphasis on employee growth as before when employees had coaches on their same career track and straightforward tasks to follow in order to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Mergers and acquisitions are all well and good but wish there was more of an emphasis on growing and keeping existing employees.
