the most enjoyable part of the job
Transition Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Camp Pendleton, CAJanuary 8, 2018
It is about giving back to the military community and you have the option to travel if that is something you love. It's a very rewarding job and you get to meet many amazing people who are about to launch another beautiful chapter in their life after sacrificing self for country. The neg part is that the job is only three days out of the week (Tues, Wed, Thurs).
Pros
hour lunch
Cons
only 3 days a week/ contracted

no help, poor management and instruction
GIS Analyst (Former Employee) –  Bowling Green, VAJanuary 1, 2018
I cannot believe all the people who have worked for this company have given them such high ratings. Something is amiss here! As a contractor I experienced terrible treatment with this company. They are rude and will lie to you just to get you in the door. They give you little to no instruction for work or projects and their management is poor in their delivery of information and expectations for projects. I would not recommend working for them as a contractor!
Pros
little to none
Cons
rude, disorganized, unhelpful

Better Management
Administrative Assistant I (Former Employee) –  Alexandria, VANovember 27, 2017
It's difficult to work with someone who does not know their job let alone someone else's. Management would ALWAYS lie to cover their own butt, but would not acknowledge the hard work that the administrative staff was doing. First one in, last one to leave.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
poor management

Work place bullying
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCNovember 6, 2017
I never felt what it was like to be bullied until working at CALIBRE. I had seen bullying, I recognized it when it happens, but never felt how detrimental it could be to one’s self-esteem. I regret not saying something when I’ve seen others bullied as a kid. My supervisor would give veiled threats, make employees feel like their a problem, isolate and exclude people, create impossible or change expectations, constantly criticize, withhold information and pit employees against each other. While the supervisor was known to be a tyrant, her behavior was excused by management because she was considered to be highly-productive and sacrifice anything for the job.
Pros
Ability to work from home
Cons
Retirement compensation is subpar unless your fully vetsted

Program Analyst III (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VASeptember 18, 2017
CALIBRE is very focused on client success..The company culture is very fast paced. Upper management is good for the company, middle and lower management needs more training in dealing with non-military personnel.

Great benefits, Good people
Accounting Technician (Former Employee) –  Alexandria, VAAugust 16, 2017
Management not so good maybe so type of communication skills training needed. I didn't feel that African Americans were given equal opportunities to move upward within the company, few if any African Americans hold management or project manger positions. This number is even less at the mid and lower level positions.
Pros
benefits and retirement
Cons
no African american leaders, directors, managers, persons of power

Engineer III (Current Employee) –  Chesapeake, VAAugust 11, 2017
Traveling for Calibre has taken me to places I never dreamed I'd be such as Germany and Okinawa. Also having never served in the armed forces I feel this gives me an opportunity to give back!

Company is ok
Program Analyst (Former Employee) –  Alexandria, VAJune 5, 2017
Overall, the company is ok. Doesn't offer room for advancement at the client site. Company management onsite was very judgmental and biased. Managers at the company were objective.

Terrible raises
Instructor II (Current Employee) –  Johnston, IAFebruary 27, 2017
Good culture, nice employee owned company. Great if you can get five years there with our your contract being sold. 1% pay raises a year is not good especially when written in the contracts we are suppose to get three times that amount.
