    I have been working at TASC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    After working for several other companies int he government services field I found that TASC was basically the same as others.

    Cons

    Management often seems too happy to give the customer whatever they want, with little consideration to whether it makes sense or is do-able. This leads to employee frustration and is considered to just be the way it is.

    I have been working at TASC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of room to move up. Local Management is easy to communicate with. Almost everyone is eager to learn and eager to teach. Great communication in some groups.

    Cons

    Decisions aren't in favor of the employee, especially when it comes to money. Engility has made it very clear that they will win tasks, even if it means getting rid of people and cutting salaries. LPTA bids have ruined TASC's name, though they've done what they can to preserve the workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Fight for us!

    I worked at TASC (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Initially it was great to work with "small" business within a large business (NGC).

    Cons

    politics and personal gains of the hierarchy was more important at the expense of those who actually bring in the money.

    Advice to Management

    Anyone at this time, however, I would hope common sense will prevail; not holding my breath.

    I have been working at TASC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting work doing IV&V for several types of space missions. Co-workers are enthusiastic. Project leads are knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Poor benefits (high cost medical insurance, no sick time), no raises for most workers, very few upward mobility opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like they matter. If you're not going to give them sick time, at least allow them to accrue comp time.

    I have been working at TASC full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are great. Unfortunately that is really the only thing good about working here.Other than the paycheck.

    Cons

    Benefits have declined such as vacation and raises. Engility has acquired TASC and it remains to be seen what the change will bring.

    I worked at TASC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility in work schedule, great people to work with, real team work in proposal production.

    Cons

    New company was hazy in guidance and processes. Benefits cut, no raises since 2013.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are not widgets--cutting to the bone to be "lean and mean" will result in losing your best people, relying on the cheapest method will result in poor services to the customer and damage your bottom line.

    Pros

    Ability to work from home

    Cons

    For whatever reason the system always breaks and the number for support tickets is ridiculous. Summer is less busy and they let people go due to downsizing but it's never mentioned during the hiring process that this happens every year.
