Catapult was a good company.
IT Specialist (Former Employee) – Pentagon, DC – May 15, 2015
Never in my 10 years as an IT Specialist have I worked for a company (as a federal contractor) for 3.5 years, so it was good job security while it lasted. The benefits and company-sponsored events were fun but some events have been cancelled for the most part. They were originally a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (8a) and they reflected the thoughtful leadership of the original owner, Randy Slager. He had to retire but wanted to stay on the board of the new owner, DC Capital. Mark Hunker is now in charge of Catapult (2015).
I cannot vouch for what the current management, economic value, or status of the company with the government is other than to say they are in transition and may now be known as SC3 - with the combination of two other federal contractors. They moved their HQ from Bethesda, MD to Alexandria, VA to join all the other partners under DC Capital. They are considered a mid-level contractor now, so I was involved in a contract transition before I was laid off from a small team that worked well together, even under the new Prime contractor. They were good people as well.
Smart People, Excellent Co-workers, Good Cafeteria Benefit Plans, Pension plan - immediate vesting - at this time.
Defense politics, no Prime contract business, HR's lack of coordinated retension system.
