    I worked at Wexford Group International full-time

    Pros

    Salary is one of the highest in the industry. Customers are top notch.

    Cons

    If you are not a part of the in crowd expect to be put on the worst and the longest deployments. If you don't deploy, you are an automatic detriment to the company. We had guys with sick kids or family that needed to stay home, got looked down on for taking care of their families. Claims to be SOF, but most team leaders aren't and don't understand SOF. They fired a guy while he was on active duty, which is illegal, then fired a chic after reporting harassment from one of their non-SOF, in crowd, team leaders. Also tried not to pay for our deployment travel as punishments for whatever new thing they made up because they couldn't run the contract right. Stay away at all costs unless you are in dire need of money and don't mind being treated badly on a daily basis. They are amateur hour, but act like they have all been operators for team 6.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourself. Then hire someone higher than an E6 as your program manager, higher team leaders who actually understand SOF, then get rid of the toxicity in the office that you promote and reward. Maybe you'll get your reputation back too.

    I worked at Wexford Group International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - You will get to work for some of the most amazing analysts in the business.
    - Pay is great compared to other like-positions.
    - Money, working with some talented peers and the mission are the only good things about working here.
    - The Government leadership is also great - very supportive but is hands-off when it comes to company issues.

    Cons

    Wexford is a company built on a base of employee intimidation and questionable ethics. Without a doubt this company employs some of the best analytical minds in the business, but at a cost - morale and fear of reprisal. Yes, the pay is generous for similar positions in government contracting, but know what you are getting yourself into. If you’re an intelligence analyst looking to get hired here, know that you will be marginalized by narcissistic operations folks that do nothing but maintain spreadsheets and talk about MMA. Not all are like this, but most are and will get paid much higher than you. Traveling anywhere is a nightmare... don’t expect to receive perdiem everywhere you go overseas, they will find a way to save the government money while neglecting you. Because the office is ran by “the cool guys,” you will not fit in initially. Someone once told me, “no one accepts you into the branch until you’ve done your time and deployed a couple of times.” I found this to be true as opportunities were given to those “with more time” instead of those that truly would do well in an elevated position.

    The company also chooses to hire three categories of personnel: those that are truly gifted with brilliant minds, those that spent 20-40 years in the military and are incapable of doing any intelligence analysis whatsoever, and in some instances a pretty face with no experience at all. The animosity is off the charts for leadership - even though they choose to either ignore it or are insanely naive. It got worse after they choose brush an instance of sexual harassment under the rug. How you’re able to do that on a government contract baffles me. Leadership will threaten to fire you if you talk to any of your peers about salaries and/or express any disdain for the Wexford name. So if you plan on being a part of this team, understand that you will be accountable for your opinions and will pay harshly for expressing your critiques.

    The environment is so bad in the office that people dread coming into work. Most choose to be deployed as much as possible to avoid ever being in the office. It is quite literally all about the pay and much less about the job itself - even though you do get to do some cool stuff if you’re on the right problem-set. Either way, money is the motivating factor. I celebrated triumphantly when I left the company and so will you.

    Advice to Management

    - Stop marginalizing your employees.
    - Create a positive environment without fear and negativity.
    - Promote those that truly deserve it and not only those that suck up to senior leadership.
    - Distribute salaries fairly rather than paying those with a pretty face or with a connection to management.
    - If you speak "ethics" as a priority, exercise what you believe in. Not making sexual harassment allegations a priority is unacceptable.

    Pros

    - Well-respected within the industry
    - Above average salaries for the industry in this region
    - Good mobility between NC and DC

    Cons

    - Plagued by insider-baseball. The most gossip-ridden places I have ever worked. That gossip is used to inform personnel decisions.
    - Obsessed with the former military records of its employees - does not translate to good managerial leadership; No written records of performance good or bad.
    - Questionably ethical; Was fired for deploying as uniformed Reservist.

    Pros

    Great mission : : : : : Great people : : : : : : : : : Great Benefits : : : : : : The pay scale was higher than several of my counterparts at competing firms. I had relatively little experience to be considered a Director Level, but the Sr Management was willing to take a risk on a relative newcoming, and I believe it payed off for both parties

    Cons

    Long hours, demanding atmosphere, hectic schedule
    The nature of the work was often very demanding because of the higher operational tempo of the customer. Very little patience for the inexperience of junior employees.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up on lower level admin employees and those new to the arena
