    Great team and company leadership

    Pros

    From a compensation standpoint, Salient is competitive with other government contractors in the DMV. Benefits are standard across the board for Medical, Dental, Vision, PTO (15 days, 2 Floating Holidays).

    There are smart people & teams that you will come across who were part of a smaller government contractor that was acquired by Salient CRGT.

    Wide array of government contracts supporting large government agencies in IT for Civilian and DoD.

    Cons

    Constant headaches with what seems like a revolving doors of employees coming in and leaving in a year or less. This is a company backed by private equity firms. The company has acquired several other small govt contractor and merged with another. There has been several changes to leadership including the CEO leaving earlier this year as well as several VPs.

    If you are considering an internal job with this company:

    Ask if you are replacing an employee who has left and how long they were with the company before they left? How long has hiring manager been with the company? If it is less than 2 years for both, use your best judgement before accepting the job.

    Ask about the future of the company and of any upcoming big events that will impact you. A merger and several acquisitions make up this company. There could be another one on the horizon.
