    Pros

    * Good management that actually care about whether you succeed
    * Yearly raise is industry standard which is good
    * You are both rewarded and recognized by the company for performing well, (Spot Awards)
    * Fair payment and good benefits

    Cons

    * Company was outbid by another company so it lost the contract. This ended my employment and I needed to join a different company to maintain my employment on the project

    I have been working at Secure Mission Solutions full-time

    Pros

    I have been with Secure Mission Solutions for a few years now, and have always worked at a client site. When I first started the benefits were great, and there was a strong core of employees that helped mentor new employees. Everyone on the contractor side was welcoming, and even though there was a lot of work, there was always appropriate training to help.

    Cons

    After about 6 months in, the benefits were changed due to be acquired by Parsons. Our tuition reimbursement was cut in half, and although Health Dental and Vision are offered, they are not the best options. The core group of employees all left within a 4 week span to start their own company because they were so frustrated. The new PM that was put in place is hardly at the office, and attempts to be too much of a people pleaser, rather than focuses on issues with the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the benefits, and hire managers that are capable, reliable, and straight forward.

    I worked at Secure Mission Solutions (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, customer driven, highly specialized niche technology / systems expertise

    Cons

    Failed to prepare for growth; this successful small business is failing because management lacked foresight to develop any transition planing for competing in the large business sector.

    Advice to Management

    None - loss of primary customer and program portfolios have caused many employees to move to the companies now holding the contracts. Management failed this remarkable company.

    Great people, great benefits, doing great things for our country and those that risk their lives protecting it

    Cons

    Don't know what it's like now since the were acquired by the Parsons Company. At the time I was there...too many folks at (or thought they were at) the top and not enough folks to do any actual work, at least at the support location.

    Pros

    management will tend to leave you alone as long as you keep producing results. My project manager has always been there for me when I needed him, and left me alone when I didn't. They always looked out for me when ever i needed anything

    Cons

    Government contracting in general. The company works very hard to find contracts and keep them. but some times there is nothing they can do, and if there ever was a lapse in our contract, they would float us on over head.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you are doing.
