    "Losing opportunities due to trying to do too much with too few people"

    Pros

    The location is good to avoid driving into DC for folks that live south of the city. Good place for people that like to work 24x7x365

    Cons

    No true IT dept, hard to get projects completed, poor decision making at the top wasting tons of money. No Holidays!

    Advice to Management

    Let lower level managers that truly understand their departments actually make the decisions! Upper management does not understand the client perspective and how to manage without working staff to death.

    I worked at The Wills Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of overtime if no life
    Job security as long as you don't bash management
    Buddy buddy system {if you know somebody that knows somebody you good)

    Cons

    Lack of advancement for minorities
    Work you to death
    Management don't know how to talk to you w/o attitude

    Advice to Management

    Be fair & start promoting minorities instead of your buddy buddy system, listen to your employees some instead of thinking just for the company
