    middle and upper management had little appreciation of customer requirements at the working level sometimes making it hard for provide the kind of support working level customers need. this is not exceptional in the industry.

    I worked at TASC full-time

    Pros

    Excellent senior management. Allows autonomy. HR and benefits support is very good. Benefits are reasonable for the industry. Opportunities are plentiful. Security clearances are helpful.

    Cons

    Facilities is not part of TASC's wheelhouse so reachback support is difficult. Razor thin margins make for difficult hiring at times. Performance feedback is regimented and doesn't lead to proper decision making regarding finding the best and getting rid of the not so good.

    Advice to Management

    Apply a system of evaluation that will help put the best peole in front of the client in lieu of keeping the same people around jsut because they do a good job. Look for better.

    Pros

    TASC is large business, that is well known in the DC Metro area, which provides opportunities to work in various locations.

    Cons

    TASC may be saturated in some agencies, which in a period while they need to grow, the rates are not favorable to the employee.

    Advice to Management

    There was frequent reorganizations that were introduced under the guise of streamline and efficiency-- Not sure either was achieved and caused a lot of confusion at the employee level.
