Proposal Manager (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – May 1, 2016
Bowhead may be a great place to work if you work at one of the contract locations. Working at headquarters in Alexandria, VA, is a different story. The CEO, formerly the office manager in Lexington Park, who is for some reason adored by the shareholders in Barrow, micromanages everything, is quick to cast blame when something goes wrong, plays favorites, and is generally vindictive.
I began working for this company shortly after I retired from the military. Throughout my time with this company I was able to learn so much valuable information. The company was very good to their employees. I enjoyed the experience and training they offered. This job gave me the opportunity to travel.
Systems/Network Administrator II (Current Employee) – Newport News, VA – November 17, 2014
This is one of my first jobs, and I feel that it is one of the best IT companies to work for. The people are so helpful and we all work as a team to accomplish tasks. I couldn't have asked for better opportunity to display my skill level.
Manager (Former Employee) – washington, d.c. – April 22, 2014
The senior management is great, however not everyone gets along well. There are still some little kingdoms that exist. Also Bowhead is setup like no other company I have ever worked for in the past when it comes to IT & trusting employees. There is a family atmosphere that is promoted by senior management but gets lost at the director level. At times it seems even presidents are powerless to get something done. All in all my only complaints would be the healthcare benefits and IT.
the people, senior management, the share holders.
directors of certain groups, indifference in some.
Site Lead (Current Employee) – Texarkana, TX – August 17, 2013
Great people to work with and for. Good learning experience, benefits are good, and the travel is great. The hardest part of the job is being on the road (family members) but it works out. Retired Army and I love working with soldiers of all branchs, makes the job a lot more enjoyable.
SAMS Data analyst (Former Employee) – Picatinny, New Jersey – October 8, 2012
A contract job that usual lasts 6 months to a year, that helps military retirees ease back into the job market. Worked 8 to 10 hour days. Learned more about military equipment and different military systems. Co-workers were great to work with and the hardest part of the job was making sure equipment was sent to the correct locations. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and visiting multiple locations.
