I worked at SRA International full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good benifits, great people, benifits and salary are good. Flexible work hours when not restricted by customer

Cons

Focused on markets that worked in the past, not necessarily what will work in the future. As a salaried person, you are expecte to work what ever it takes. However, when supporting the customer, although you are not paid, the company bills the customer for the work you performed beyond the normal work hours.

    I have been working at SRA International full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Not that many any more, but their 401K match is decent, though I'm sure that's going to be going away soon too.

    Cons

    SRA used to be a great place to work, but at some point they just stopped caring about the employees and it shows. You really don't need to look any further then the fact that they've lost many contracts, and have lost or laid off close to 2000 people in the last two years. Now if this was a 100000 person company, that wouldn't be that much, however for a company that only had 8000 people at it's largest that's 25% of the workforce.

    Recently they've stripped people's PTO from 5 weeks (if you had over 7 years of service) to 4, and put a cap on the carry-over balance. Needless to say, the morale here stinks and the Big Wigs will say that everyone's having to make sacrifices to make us competitive again, but I'm pretty sure their bonuses aren't be sacrificed. At some point, when SRA is slightly in the green again, Providence Equity Partners (the equity firm that bought SRA 2+ years ago) is going to sell us to the highest bidder, and that will be that.

    The worst part about everything is that Corporate's communication has been horrible with all of these effective changes. We were informed about the PTO change about 2 weeks before it went into effect, and when they removed all floating holidays it was stated in a bullet in one of the mass emails they send out.

    If you are brought on, don't plan on furthering your career much. Management makes a lot of unfulfilled promises on career development, training, pay increases, bonuses, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring about the employees again. After all, they are the one's that are directly billable to the government that is providing your bonuses.

    I worked at SRA International full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    good benefits , although every year they are becoming less and less.

    Cons

    It is becoming a project based company. Once your project ends, you are unemployed in less than 2 weeks.
