    Pros

    Great benefits, great opportunities and industry! The people in most places are nice and almost all are dedicated to what we do as a company. Many are former military, which has its ups and downs. There are cliques and politics but I have yet to see an organization that doesn't have those. There are some very cool things to see and be a part of help and a real sense that you are helping in the fight against terror and helping the nation. Depending on what you do there are also a lot of areas and projects you can get involved with.

    Cons

    Politics and its modeled after the federal government so there is a lot of red tape! I am suprised we don't have to fill out a form to use the bathroom! Benefits are good now, but seems they may be taking a turn for the worse in the next few years. The company is so big that the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing, so that often causes rework and confusion in all areas of the business. Things move very slowly in most cases...its sad how long it takes to do a task that should take 10 minutes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that middle managment filters everything and even though they say things are great be able to look past that!!

    Pros

    Good leadership development program, if you can get in. Performance reviews are structured and timely. Lots of opportunities to move to other positions in the company for career development.

    Cons

    It helps to be well-connected to get ahead, and definitely a must when your contract ends, if you want to stay in the company. At contract end, most employees are on their own to find other work with little or no help from management or HR. Internal hiring process is broken - you rarely hear back from bids on requisitions, which are usually wired for someone else or out of date. So it's easier to find work outside the company. No reimbursements for parking, transportation or professional memberships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and get to know them and what motivates them. Build trust by providing positive feedback, direction or support, as needed. Give them opportunities to make a difference and get involved.
