    I have been working at Thomas and Herbert full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good starter company. Presents opportunity to learn and venture into different career areas to help grow the company. Can be a very fun place to work. Great opportunities to interface with Clients, and learn Government contracting culture. Nice idea for a company. Benefits package outside of salary are amazing.

    Cons

    Employees are overworked with lack of corporate overhead, and spread too thin at times which is counterproductive. Executives over talk and schedule meetings for everything which takes up additional time that could be used to be productive. Executives also spread themselves too thin, frequently cancel meeting due to double booking, and are very skeptical of suggestions to do better. Not open to accepting opinions or feedback from employees. Underpay for work expected to be contributed, even though they talk up growth and advancing through the company. Very good talkers, but not great with the follow through. Execution could be better. More like a staffing agency than a company offering careers. This employer is more for candidates with an established career, not for the candidate trying to build a career.

    Advice to Management

    Get more help, stop overworking employees and underpaying them. Don't forget the company is only as good as the foundation and workers it has.

    I worked at Thomas and Herbert full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The health benefit isn't bad but be prepared to pay the increases

    Cons

    Everything else about working here. Unfortunately all the bad reviews are true. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. Owners/Management really have no clue about what they're trying to do here. Or maybe they do it deliberately. This is your typical bottom feeder firm that takes on contracts that they really can't and have no intention of seriously supporting. Emphasis is definitely on winning bids on contracts then the actual work performed. The parties that get cheated in all this are the clients and the employees. The owners run the company like it's MLM or pyramid structure. More value is placed on employees that can recruit more people and on winning bids on proposals. If you're a used car salesman you'll fit right in.

    Do not work here if you're serious about your career growth or about being part of a professional organization!

    Advice to Management

    Mgmt talks a good game but they really don't back anything up. Promise the world but fail to deliver every time. Invest in your talent. Support your employees and don't abuse or over work them. Back up what you say. Actions speak louder than words. Stop running the company like it's MLM or a pyramid scheme.

    I worked at Thomas and Herbert full-time

    Pros

    Allow telecommuting and somewhat open rapport with the executive management.

    Cons

    High turnover of management. I was there for many yrs and every yr there was almost a complete turnover of the management team. The management team was very good but unable to effectively do their job and most of the time they resigned. This put the team members in a bad position with the clients who would notice the constant turnover of managers/program and project managers too.
    Very basic benefits and no 401K

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people and allow them to do the job that YOU hired them to do!

    I worked at Thomas and Herbert full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - If you like working remotely, this is the place. You will rarely see your colleagues, supervisors, or clients but may have hours of contact each day.

    - The clients are generally organizations that you can feel good about helping.

    Cons

    Professionalism and support are non-existent and sabotage is rampant. It is literally impossible to succeed, or to even feel good about your job, if the inner circle schoolyard bullies decide they don't like you. It won't matter how hard you work or how many approaches you try to be part of the team.

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting the talent you are smart enough to hire. Address the bullying and insist on a respectful and professional environment and you could thrive.

    Pros

    Good first impression, cordial recruiting

    Cons

    Dubious ethical standards, supporting contract without resources and audit quality

    Advice to Management

    Withdraw from contract that would not pass client's audit. It puts the organization in legal bind. Very risky venture...
