    The Mission and what we do every day to protect the world.

    HR sucks! wait six months to find out if you got the job! Benefits suck now too.

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul HR. Give us back our benefits since raises are basically COLA.

    Co workers make you fill very welcome, flexible work hours, employee safety is a very big concern, benefits are very good

    As normal your job is government contract dependent, management pushes there work off on, employees, receiving department does way to much work for being the lowest paid,

    Advice to Management

    cut the dead weight and hire in from the outside, department leads need to be held accountable, employees should not be doing there own yearly ratings.

    I like the work and business ethics; training provided and the opportunity to turn a failing program around.

    Advice to Management

    Take more interest in the Asian workforce. Provide more opportunities to the ones that excel in their functional areas.

    Pros

    Opportunity for personal and professional growth if you work for the right team or program. Compensation is fair, benefits are fair.

    Cons

    Government contracting is a cyclical industry and is currently struggling with wars winding down, government shutdowns etc. Work-life balance depends on your department or program. Layoffs have been quarterly and raises have not been given the last 3 years. Way too many VP's that you never see and wonder what they do all day.

    Advice to Management

    Stop chasing every bright, shiny object. This company needs long-term vision. The next time you win a wind-fall of a contract, consider using some of the profit to invest in your systems, processes and people instead of slapping each other on the back and lining every executive's pockets with bonuses. Create a scalable work-force so you don't have to do lay-offs every 3 months which keep workers in perpetual fear of losing their jobs.

    Pros

    Pay and compensation are fair and comparable to similar companies. There are opportunities for lateral movement within the larger projects and upward growth for those who have the skills and abilities required for leadership (and some who do not). The company has made great strides in the past few years to improve it's organizational structure and implement new programs for continuous improvement and employee development.

    Cons

    Benefits packages for international employees could be much better. 12 hour work days, 7 days per week is mandatory for contract employees on some projects. Limited placement opportunities for senior staff after serving on international contracts (even after 4+ years of dedicated service in harsh conditions). Employee support staff (HR, Finance) frequently shows incompetence (but has improved slightly in recent years).

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the efforts and achievements of your senior staff on some of the larger projects (i.e. LOGCAP, State Department) and make it a priority to reach out to these employees and offer placement opportunities in positions stateside or on other projects internationally.
