    Pros

    Mission is noble. Helping people with significant disabilities is a great way to give back while learning the federal procurement process. There are great people working here but you will only find them in the lower level and professional positions.

    Cons

    Where do I start...Leadership; very poor and unethical. Here we find lots of mediocre people who've brown nosed to get ahead. Too many AVPs and Directors who are incompetent and undeserving of their titles. Some of these guys can't even walk and spit at the same time let alone lead a team. If you are good at brown nosing you have stiff competition here. These guys dedicate their time to upstaging each other. There are some leaders in this organization that have been involved with the program for 20 plus years yet have no concept of management. If you are intelligent enough to understand processes or project management, don't waste your time. You already know more than 80% of leadership which makes you a threat. Also, the facts are the facts, this organization deserves to be under scrutiny not because of its failed policies and procedures but for incompetence. This is a group of people that loves to over complicate any process. Leadership can usually be found brainstorming new ideals without addressing current issues, however they are expert at covering their impactful mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    All of senior management should retire, especially the older staff. You've paralyzed the program by perpetuating distinction while pushing your own selfish agendas to cover up senseless abuse of policy and protect your incompetence. New senior staff should grow a backbone and step up to improve the operations. A couple of you were in the right place at the right time and got lucky. Now is your chance to change perceptions and become an example for the rest of the company. Also there is no room in an organization that supports people to be so inthralled with so many politics. It's a shame to see egos maniacs who fall short on skills blemish the mission of this program. These People are more concerned with job titles then their mission to employ individuals with significant disabilities which should be most important.

    Pros

    The only thing good about this company is the fact that they go out and secure government contracts to employee individuals with disabilities.

    Cons

    Terrible leadership, micro management, top heavy company. Outdated systems, terrible raises. This company is bloated with poor talent, mainly in senior leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and bring in real leadership. Too many long time employees who are expensive and do not bring value. Failing company.

    Pros

    The benefits is second to none with the healthcare and retirement options. Never seen a company take care of its employees like this company does.

    Cons

    Nothing major, other than what is noted to the advice to management below. Company is going through some organozational changes which is a positive.

    Advice to Management

    Too many redundancy positions in upper management, the AVP positions are a joke as Directors/ Executive Directors do all the work for contracts that generate the income for organization. Lack of concrete processes and accountability for failure within processess.

    Pros

    The mission is awesome! Facilitiating the employment of People with Severe Disabilities is a wonderful thing.
    Health Care benefits are super and the 401k match is as well. There are some really great people that work here...

    Cons

    Too many AVP's and not enough workers.
    HR department doesnt work hard at all which kills the rest of the organization.
    The Salary ranges were the same from 2005-2014 without a single change. This left many people capped out at their current salary with no opportunity for an increase, merit or otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the FAT!
    Quit wasting money on outside consultants and bringing in upper level SLT folks that don't have a clue about the mission, nor do they care.
    Upper Management seems to be in love with where people worked before vs. whether they are worth a nickel now at SA or not!

    Former Employee - Associate Account Manager in Vienna, VA
    Former Employee - Associate Account Manager in Vienna, VA

    I worked at SourceAmerica full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Good mission - The ultimate goal is employing people with disabilities.
    -Benefits (PPO, 8% match 401k)
    -Opportunity for growth, movement within company
    -Pretty much 40 hrs/week; work not terribly stressful

    Cons

    -Culture isn't great, especially for younger employees, as board and senior leadership are stuck in antiquated corporate philosophies, usually learned from military or government experience
    -Like many workplaces, politics can play a big part in who moves up and who stays stagnant
    -Program is inherently inefficient and administratively burdensome. SA lacks the will or power to change these things.
    -Salary isn't great compared to for-profit government contractors
    -Management feels bloated; senior employees of the company are often 'retired in place', given makeshift roles to justify their place/pay in the company
    -Program is so unique that "technical" skills learned are hard to apply outside of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries in Northern VA office/HQ.
    Embrace a more contemporary work culture.

    Pros

    Sounds like one of my peers isn't too happy with SourceAmerica. I'd recommend considering leaving rather than sticking around and poisoning the atmosphere. We need positive and dedicated sales people to grow jobs. We also need to give our senior management time to bring us out of a long period of inaction and change the way we do business.

    Cons

    Having people with poor attitudes takes away from all the positive things happening.

    Advice to Management

    In addition to needing some fresh thinking from younger workers, we need to see people who are not happy leave with help from senior management.
