    Pros

    The people are amazing and the opportunity to support the warfighter is fulfilling.

    Cons

    The company is always restructuring, which is difficult when you are trying to building relationships. They are always laying off the people who do the work, as opposed to the middle management who are getting paid to sit at their desk all day.

    Advice to Management

    Consider bringing back growth opportunities.

    Pros

    NASA Contractor close to home. Unique contract and requirements. Interesting co-workers many with many years at the same job so it coud be somewhat like a family.

    Cons

    Stressfull work envronment with no room for advancement. When the contract awarded was awarded to a new company benefits were not as good sick leave was taken away for non-union employees.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate offices need to have more flexability woth the individual contracts--not everything fits in to the box.

    Pros

    Seems to be winning again and fixing the former management team's mess-- the damage was huge. No more Flippen behavior courses and other wasteful projects that added nothing-- all gone and repairs underway.

    Cons

    The CEO needs to communicate substantially more and be project presence.Tell the company where we are and where we are going. He needs to visit offices outside of Virginia. He needs to convince us that he is prepared to lead the company through the transformation back to being strong and tell how how he plans to do it and how we can help. This is a big problem, no communication , no staff meetings-- just a back hole.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO needs lead.

    Pros

    Pay is on time normally

    Cons

    HR team is unresponsive and senior leadership is the worst. If you have a concer you will either wait weeks for a response and more often than not no response. High turnover and higher layoffs with little to no notice. 3 CEO changes in 18 months. Unless you need it dontt bother. There are plenty of other contract companies out there

    Advice to Management

    Change HR leadership starting at the top then director level

    Pros

    The salary was outstanding and was delivered on time every pay day.

    Cons

    Under my program, we were only allowed to have 14 days off per year which included travel time. The flight from Afghanistan to the US typically takes about 24+ hours so you lose a day or two of your vacation time.
