Help Desk Specialist (Former Employee) –  Patuxent River, MDAugust 30, 2017
Great customers that call in for help at the help desk, but a lot of angry customers due to the lack of training and superior business office help. A lot of finding the answers yourself. Help desk team is really by themselves trying to solve issues at their level. but as soon as the question is too much they just send the customer away and have the business office call them in about 2 weeks. the turn around would have the customers angry. But overall if you are determined to give excellent customer service then you'll enjoy this job. Talking to customers all day. sitting and no real activities.

Information Assurance Analyst (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLJuly 14, 2017
ECS has been a company that works to standardize. They have been efficient and overall a decent company to work with. The company changed to subcontractor for a program and provided little detail, did not advise staff honestly, and provided less than 24 hour to accept new job and pay scale.
Pros
pay has been consistent
Cons
short notice of change in position

Summary
Client Operations (Current Employee) –  Patuxent River Naval Air Station, MDMarch 7, 2017
A typical day is managing employees to uphold a service level agreement. I have learned many programs like Navy ERP, Maximo, TAA etc.
The hardest part of my job is assisting unknown issues.
The most enjoyable part of the my job is the interaction with people around the world.

limited room for growth and poor benefits package for industry
Analyst (Current Employee) –  MarylandNovember 20, 2015
ECS is your typical mid-sized consulting firm. Unless you work at the main office, you will more than likely be one amongst the many faceless minions. There's not much room for advancement, and the benefits are pretty lacking. The latter wasn't always the case, but beware: health insurance is now based on a defined benefit structure rather than a defined contribution, and to get a decent plan, you will have to shell out $$$$

good place to build
Systems Engineer /Project Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLOctober 15, 2015
Working as a government contractor I get to see the other side of the federal work coin. Where the brunt of the effort is focused and needed.

As a contractor I do nearly all the same tasks as my government counterparts, but with the added incentive of knowing inaction or complacency can get me removed. The change of pace, the pressure to perform, has done more for me in terms of desire to improve than my years in government service.

Best part is I am allowed to work with whomever I choose on the contract. I can surround myself with equally motivated co-workers from both the contract and our government peers. Allowing me to surround myself with the best people on both sides.
Pros
Motivation, flexible schedule, benefits
Cons
compensation limited, upward mobility difficult
