    Pros

    Great if you have interest in anything regarding cybersecurity, and you'll be even better off if you have a networking background. Employs right out of college, so they didn't ask for any required work experience. You can self-task yourself as a junior...you'd think they'd put you through training 24/7, but we've only received 2 weeks of formal training, which led to certification exams. Pass your exams and get your security clearance, if you're into a laid back environment, this is for you!

    Cons

    Lack of communication--if you don't continuously ask "What's next?" no one will tell you. Find a passion on your own and study for it. Find exams you want to pass and earn yourself some certifications a.k.a. "street cred." You won't get much help on career paths/choices, but always ask!!! It's an extension of college until you are tasked on a government contract, but don't hold your breath as a junior.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate in a TIMELY MANNER. Establish a curriculum so that your junior employees are competitive in the workforce. Find mentors/leaders in the fields your employees want to advance in and help them find the best career path for them. Show them the types of tasking the mid-level and senior-level people have in those said career paths.

    Pros

    Very good customer-facing workers and solutions, high return of contracts and staff retention.

    Cons

    Support for HR, employee outreach, and employee IT planning and communication is lacking. We just don't know what's going on at headquarters.

    Advice to Management

    Review how we do new hire processing, commmunication from HR, benefits information, and especially when changes are upcoming for software upgrades and things. Seems to be a new surprise every time.

    Pros

    There are no pros here.

    Cons

    There was no structure whatsoever there. They were behind on work by at least 3 years when I started. I was completed lied to by HR and the hiring manager during interview process. HR ignored complaints filed against manager.

    Pros

    Teams work pretty well together and smart people make themselves available as really solid resources.

    Cons

    Extremely "process improvement" oriented, even at the expense of doing actual work. Top level managers delegate to the point where they DO very little, but advance their own careers while giving little recognition (verbal or financial) to the people actually doing the work. Negotiate your salary HARD at the beginning because "raises" are few and far between, even if you get a promotion. Top down communication is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your employees. Lead by example. Acknowledgement is good, raises (real, meaningful raises) are better. Keep your employees in the loop regarding things like government shutdowns and the reason no raises were given instead of letting rumors and gossip rule.

    Pros

    Some projects treat their people very well.

    Cons

    How well you're treated depends on the project you're in.
