    I have been working at The MIL Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    I have been working at The MIL Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Sometimes there is a lot of work and sometimes you have a lot of down time. The down time can get boring, but they don't get on you for watching youtube on those days.

    Cons

    Working from home is not possible. Also, they have strange job titles to suit their government contract. I have been a programmer here for 4 years, but my job title is "Technical Specialist".

    Typical corporation that uses any reason to justify a lack of a good raise. Record profits for the company this year and very few people saw much of an increase. New arbitrary rules every year from both the DoS and MIL that negatively affect morale and don't really serve a clear purpose other than somebody's whim.

    Advice to Management

    Since working from home is not an option, MIL needs to find other perks for employees in the tech industry. The good talent will not stick around for the long run, otherwise.

    I worked at The MIL Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits, fairly flexible with back office team.

    Cons

    Severlely understaffed in the back office, management by e-mail, little to no training for many of the back office jobs.

    Corproate culture is sterile, there seems to be an "old boys club" mentality in place. Company seems to be stuck in the 80's in the sense of management mentality. Not modern at all.

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect employees to be able to fully do their job by Day 2, need a little bit of training.
    Develop better culture, needs to start from the top down.

    Pros

    Pays well and that is about it!

    Cons

    Unprofessional leadership, managers who have an in crowd of employees who receive preferential treatment, and lacking of transparency in terms of the contract. These folks are NOT to be trusted. Program Managers hardly last 6 months with them. They will also provide guidance on what to say to the customer and when it backfires, put you in the hot seat. A former colleague experienced this and I was aware of what he was told to say. Too bad he did what they told him to do and it cost him.

    They will make up lies and more to fulfill their agenda. If you call them on it, they will terminate your employment and submit pages of lies for future job roles and security investigations.

    This was my experience and although my employment was wrongfully terminated, glad I was able to give them the business on interview with unemployment and get over $8K in compensation. Bringing the EEOC in on them would've been too time consuming to pursue, so moved on.

    If you value your career, don't do business with these people regardless of what you read in other reviews!

    Advice to Management

    Take training on ethics.
