    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.
