A Small Company in Decline !
Senior Manager of Operations (Former Employee) –  Reston HeadquartersMarch 15, 2017
A Small Company that focuses on Cyber, Agile Development and other IT related programs supporting the Federal Government.

Poorly run from a Management standpoint. The Partners at this firm cannot make decisions without the owner's say so. They lack a strategy and approach to the market. Managers do not feel empowered and the morale is low.

Benefits are average and promotions are based on popularity rather than work performance. This has resulted in high turn over and the company has decreased recently in size. They have a once per month pay schedule.
Pros
Thanksgiving Catered in before the holiday, nice !!
Cons
The pull money from the employee bonus pool to pay for a yearly company party.

Great Company
Senior Security Subject Matter Expert / Analyst 3 (Current Employee) –  Reston, VAMarch 8, 2017
I liked this place so much that I came back. Money is good and is not everything is not about money. There are lots of other things that are Blue Canopy does that adds value to the overall work experience.

The owners will wave to you, and ask you how you are doing.

The hardest part of the job is when not to be too honest with your boss.

The best part of the job is I want to go to work every day and work with great people.
Pros
Great people
Cons
I have not found anything yet.

Good position with limited advancements and micro management
SCCM SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR (Current Employee) –  Aberdeen Proving Ground, MDDecember 15, 2016
Compensation could be better giving the detail of the work. Project manager is trivial with supervisory and at times keeps us (the SCCM System Administrator's) from completing tasks at a certain time. I've learned some great techniques, and built some great rapport with customers as well as co-workers.

SCCM System Administrator (Current Employee) –  Aberdeen Proving Ground, MDDecember 6, 2016
The work environment is ok after actually finding space for my team to be onsite. Took an extended period to attain our equipment to conduct our workflow and not borrow others equipment. Our project manager is a micro manager and prolongs our task at times.
Pros
own workspace, good team

Pay is not competitive with market, however benefits are good and work life balance is good. Lots of government contracts requiring a clearance not good if you have been out of work for a while.

The little company that couldn't
Associate (Former Employee) –  Reston, VAMay 8, 2012
A typical day at work involves at least one faux crisis. The hardest part of the job is the realization that you were dumb enough to accept their offer. The 1%ers who run the company are all ex-Bearing Point. If you ain't from BP, forget about being supported, promoted or being recognized in any way.
Pros
the paychecks don't bounce
Cons
moday through friday
