    I worked at Solutions By Design II full-time

    Pros

    SBDII was a wonderful company to work for. Everyone is happy on a daily basis and there was plenty of laughter throughout the office each day. The company itself actually seems to care about their employees. Management check up on you from time to time just to see how you’re doing. Management wants to grow you and even sets out a plan to get you to that next level. My colleagues there were all such great people with big kind hearts. Their talent acquisition director receives my highest regards as she remained attentive to any of my concerns, did what she said she was going to do, and actually made me feel like I was wanted in the company. Overall a great company.

    Cons

    The internal onboarding process setting up your accounts and whatnot wasn’t very streamlined. Guaranteed that your first week of working there will consist of you struggling to set up your accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    It does in deed take a village or I must say a corporation to raise excellent and dedicated employees. A company that goes above and beyond to support their employees is a gem in this industry. My brother passed away 2 weeks before I started working at SBD2 and I must say the kindness shown from my manager and corporate I’ve not seen in my 13 years working. SBD2 is a family orientated company. They put their employees first and I am appreciative of it.

    Cons

    Streamline reports that makes reporting easy

    Advice to Management

    Continue to show dedication to your employees.

    Pros

    Money. Yep. That's about it.

    Cons

    Satellite Offices are treated as an afterthought-If you ain't in Vienna...Oh well....
    Never had any kind of Performance review so I never knew if I was doing a good or poor job
    401K "Matching Contribution" is if the owners deems it is possible to do so
    Actually had better interactions with the other Sub on the contract - at least they came to visit the office...
    I should have know better when they stated Insperity is the benefits provider.... Insperituy, in my opinion, rates about a C-

    Advice to Management

    CLEAR COMMUNICATIONS OF EXPECTATIONS TO ALL EMPLOYEES REGARDLESS OF WHERE THEY ARE PLACED...please....
    Just winning a contract is only 1/2 of keeping it - Please COMMUNICATE with your employees at least on a weekly basis. And NO; emailed Newsletters are not communication...How about SKYPE? How about a call every once in a while to say..."How you doing? - "What can we do to make you more effective in your position?"

    I worked at Solutions By Design II full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My position with Solutions By Design II was an Information Assurance Engineer on a DLA contract. I spent almost two years with the company and was able to grow and develop very fast within the company. I left to work for a small start-up thinking that I would be able to make a greater impact and that was one of my biggest career mistakes. Below is a list of some benefits that don’t put a dent into the overall picture of the company.
    • Career Growth
    • Personal Development
    • Pay
    • Vacation Time
    • Management
    • Team Dynamics
    Again this is not all but some of the most important when considering a position with this company.

    Cons

    Career options within areas outside of D.C.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Company is good. Although, they do need to make their on-site employees feel they are part of the company.

    Cons

    It was hard to believe that any of my staff at SBD2 did not get any pay increase in 2 years,

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to visit on-site employees and interact with their customers a bit more.
