Nice people, good working environment (if you are part of the circle)

Leadership is only looking for profits. If they can cut positions on projects to increase money for leadership, they will. Classic Too Many Kings and not enough Peasants. They will try to squeeze everything they can out of lower paid positions in the hopes they don't have to pay real talent.
There is plenty of work for there to be done.
Not enough resources so a few people work really hard to get things done, You dont really interact with other parts of the company
I've learned a lot about web development. The workplace is very casual. There's no clocking in but time needs to be registered on time sheets. The location is also great since it's located near a ton of restaurants.
SENIOR ASSOCIATE / SENIOR PROJECT MANAGER (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – November 14, 2016
Great company to work for if compensation is your main driver. Projectized organization that somewhat limits the ability to grow within the company due to lack of other opportunities. Unfortunately loss of project generally means loss of job but the management does a great job of trying to help find opportunities within the company.
Project Analyst (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – June 27, 2014
A typical day at work at Dovel was challenging yet rewarding. I learned several strong project management skills. The management was always on point. The co-workers were the soul of the company, they would always help me any chance I got. The hardest part of the job were the high expectations and deadlines on some tasks. The most enjoyable was the friendly interactions with co-workers and management.
Business Developer (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – August 7, 2012
Typical day at work is interfacing with everyone from recruiting to pricing to operations to the CEO. Anyone can talk to anyone at this company; very flat.
They're very CMMI-centric and will do anything for a positive appraisal. Once appraised, they take a breather. Then get ready for the next one.
Hardest part: It's a small company. One guy had to work on a proposal his first week there and stay past 8 all week. Most folks wear at least 7 different hats and it's expected. You don't last long if you're not willing to go above and beyond.
Most enjoyable: Next to no red tape. You need a dual monitor? Done. You need to fly to Orlando for a conference? Done.
free breakfasts, free coffee, next to mclean hilton, pretty good compensation
the only place to eat your lunch is out or at your desk, as in no real break room, overtime expected more than half the time
