    Pros

    Worked with great people. The management I had actually cared about my well being as an employee and not just as a tool.

    It was far from home I had to leave it for family reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Expand, I would like to see you in Charlotte, NC

    I worked at Systems Studies and Simulations full-time

    Pros

    Matches 401K at 7%... this might be the only good thing I have to say

    Cons

    Terrible Management, everyone underpaid, no room for advancement, the CEO fires someone every week so don't even think you'll last longer than 5 months. Even so, someone also quits every 2 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    If they paid their employee's and treated them well maybe people wouldn't quit so often.

    Pros

    Good healthcare package.
    Paychecks arrive on time.

    Cons

    Non standard company policies that are not shared with employees.
    Shady management practices.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO is oblivious to their audience. She walked in on the first meeting of new employees on a location hey took over an existing contract. First things were bragging about how many milions she is making when everyone took a 10k pay cut at that location.

    Extremely negative view of any employee collective, so negative they try to stall any talks.

    They stand behind their managers even if they are dead wrong or violate labor laws, to the point or seeking retribution.
