Senior Help Desk Analyst (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VAFebruary 5, 2015
I enjoy my job but as a contractor its year to year. ASD has been a fair company so far. I tend to like smaller companies over big companies. The eduction benifits are a big plus!!!

No work/life balance. No support for working parents. No support from management. Increases, if any, are minimal.

Challenging Job in a Poor Cultural Environment
Senior Systems/Network Analyst (Former Employee) –  Huntsville, ALFebruary 23, 2015
As prime contractor for the Command Information Management System R&D and production work for the US Army Space and Missile Defense Command, Advanced Systems Development had a still solid but disintegrating team of employees when I took this position. Comprised of a mix from ASD, SAIC, Camber, TekSystems, and InfoPro, there was ample opportunity to continue building team cohesiveness among developers, testers, analysts, administrators, and help desk personnel, who had mostly been hired when SAIC had been the prime. ASD seemed to let it all slip away.

Possibly ASD's loss of interest in the contract is attendant upon the government's decision in 2011 to "in-source" all contractor personnel, but it is telling that all but twenty or so of the more than one hundred contractor personnel chose to transfer to government employment or go elsewhere.

More telling is the fact that when ASD lost the contract to Boecore in December, 2012, they chose not to communicate the fact to employees. In fact, Boecore initiated all contact with ASD personnel three months before the transition, and Boecore ensured that the transition (and attendant layoff) was a matter of one night of being not employed for all of us.

All in all, I was glad to have the job and the income, but this was definitely tempered negatively by the absence of any meaningful management involvement.

(I will be giving a positive assessment of the CEO of ASD, but that is largely because of his philanthropic focus. After the Haiti earthquake and tsunami, he and the company matched all employee contributions to five different relief
  more... and recovery agencies, including the Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders.)  less
Pros
fair salary schedule, decent raises, some bonuses
Cons
hands and eyes off attitude of management
