    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.

    Pros

    TASC has a great tuition assistance program, with a very high annual max.

    Cons

    Does not allow customer to pay for hours while at training paid for by TASC related to the contract. Too much corporate mgmt. ignoring remote sites. Career advancement is limited.

    Treat remote sites are regular revenue generating organizations rather than a last priority.

    I worked at TASC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - My line management was excellent - there was good, honest communication, and they valued employee contributions.
    - When I was looking to move on to another project after almost three years, my management and the human resources department really worked hard to try to find me viable options.
    - The benefits and compensation were competitive, including providing access to technology training that was timely as well as useful to our customers
    - TASC applied some of the best automation of personnel-oriented processes (e.g., onboarding, reviews, benefits enrollment) I have ever encountered.

    Cons

    - There were not many placement options for very senior technical resources (25+ years)
    - Raises during the last two years at TASC were non-existent, possibly as part of TASC's move to merge with Engility
    - Extra effort with proposals, contract re-competes and similar activities did not appear to receive matching rewards.

    Advice to Management

    It's been two years since I left TASC, and with the merger with Engility, I'm not sure how the management of the company has changed. But high performers and those who put extra effort in should be rewarded for their work.
