Pros: free breakfasts, free coffee, next to mclean hilton, pretty good compensation
Cons: 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
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.
