    Great Work/Life Balance and Comp Package

    Feb 19, 2022 - Senior Software Developer in San Diego, CA

    Pros

    One of the only companies to still offer a 401k with match, and a completely free-of-charge Pension plan which vests after 4 years of Full Time Employment.

    Cons

    Hard to get FTE status. Most employees start as a contractor through another staffing agency. If they like you, you will have the opportunity to get a position directly with the organization, but as a yearly-contract employee. It's a bit strange, as they give you benefits, the 401k, and everything of an FTE, however, they have a yearly option to either renew or not renew your contract, and they tend to let you know later, which has effect on your mental well-being; waiting until the last minute until you know if your job is secure for the the next. However, I wasn't aware of anyone who did not get their yearly contract renewed. This is often due to once you become a Full Time Employee, you are almost completely impervious to be fired.

    Pros

    They are good to give certain folks training to assist with their growth.

    Cons

    Growth is a problem, seems folks are always overlooked by management. Current management are not real leaders. HR here doesn't help the situation and just seems things are getting worse. Most of the middle management and workforce has recently left for better positions at other companies. Everyone now seems over worked with folks working over 12 hours a day.
