Senior Manager (Current Employee) – Chantilly, VA – May 11, 2016
I haven't worked at a lot of other government IT contractors, but lots of our partners and other new employees say that this place is different/better compared to most places they've worked. The management team tries really hard to give employees a chance to expand their skills (e.g., getting training, moving between projects, participating in proposal efforts) -- and to get involved in shaping the workplace (recommending new benefits, helping to interview job candidates...). The company seems sincere about trying to help federal agencies tackle tough projects that make a difference to lots of US citizens. We work pretty hard sometimes, but most companies that grow and are trying to do something remarkable DO work hard. This is a very interesting and rewarding place to work, but it's not for everyone.
Culture, management commitment to employees, overall compensation
Somewhat limited opportunities for advancement, since we're a small cmopany
Master Scheduler (Current Employee) – Falls Church, VA – February 22, 2017
Master Scheduler - Citizant (CTR) OIT - Office of Information Technology EOIR - Executive Office of Immigration Review USDOJ - United States Department of Justice
• Currently responsible for managing, controlling and overseeing all MS Project Schedules. • Coordinating, creating charts and slide decks for Portfolio Investment Review Committee (PIRC) presentations. • Participating in meetings and interfacing with Project Managers (PM) key stakeholders and team members. • Responsible for file uploads to SharePoint. • Provide support for Steering Committee and Fiscal Planning.
I extremely enjoyed working at Citizant. The workplace environment was very laid back and included a great experience to work with a variety of mentors. Anytime I ran into issues or troubles, I could ping a senior developer and get the solutions sorted out. The company focused on bridging communication between employees so there was no gaps in work progress.
Market/Competitive Intelligence Analyst (Current Employee) – Chantilly, VA – May 5, 2015
The people from the CEO down are; compassionate, team oriented, intelligent, diligent, creative, driven, focused, and passionate about IT learning /business/enterprise architecture (SOA, SOAP, EA, Microsoft, c++, JBOSS) and fulfilling the government need for specialists like these unique individuals across the full DHS, DOJ, and DOT spectrum!
This is a nice small company however the management is lacking! This would be a great place to work eventually but until then they need to firm up the management structure. The owner doesn't have a clue what is going on.

Citizant is a Good place to work with nice people. The company is growing rapidly. They recently did a restructure so some positions are being switched around a bit, but overall a good place to work with some flexibility.
Great work life balance, great opportunity, friendly environment
Jr. Business Analyst, IT (Current Employee) – Chantilly, VA – December 6, 2013
Citizant is the model of what a small IT based firm should encapsulate. The mission and goals instilled in each employee resonate throughout the company and transcend into the work provided for the customer. It is a faced paced learning environment with much room for creative intuition to come to fruition. The work life balance is extremely flexible and friendly faces are always around the corner.
Software Developer (Current Employee) – Chantilly, VA – June 12, 2013
The typical work day involved working in a webservice, java, mainframe environment. I learned quit a bit at my work place Norfolk NOB developing in really two different environments at the same time. The hardest part of my job is dealing with really not having PC's with enough memory to be able to work between both environments at the same time therefore causing lots of time lost just trying to run processes to perform compiles, run test and develop.
The environment gear you to defintely a great learning experiece.
Infrastructure is not condusive for muliti processing.
