It is important to state that Akima is a parent company of the company I work with which is Affigent. Akima owns Affigent. NANA owns Akima.
Affigent has a loosely based management structure with multiple sales personnel managing different contract vehicles depending upon what their primary customer uses (DoD, State Dept. etc.).
Affigent is a small business (50-75 employees) which moves very quickly. As a small business, cash flow is critical to ensure the credit line of such a small company. This means there is a lot of pressure on procurement and post ops as well to ensure adequate proof of delivery is attained.
Do not be fooled, this company does very well for itself, but sometimes at the cost of respect for coworkers.
