N/A (Current Employee) – Ashburn, VA – August 8, 2017
Working at FCi Federal is a stressful job because you are only as good as your next contract win. It is a rewarding job because you help people and our programs be successful and it shows throughout our work at our customer sites. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting out to the sites and talking with our staff making sure they are ok.
There are not many advancement opportunities and favoritism tends to run rampant.
Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) – Williamsburg, KY – December 6, 2017
A typical day was sitting in my cubicle and entering data for 8+ hours. There was mandatory ot when I worked there. Had to work very fast and still not supposed to make any errors. You don't receive enough training. It's hard to get questions answered.
Management is HORRIBLE and a joke and played favorites. Some that sucked up could walk around and do very little while others had to work. It was a very stressful atmosphere and you are made to feel like you're not valued.

Principal Business Analyst (Current Employee) – San Diego CA Telecommute – September 26, 2017
When visiting corporate office, everyone was friendly and seemed to enjoy working there. I administrated the data tracking system for four large government contracts and everyone I interacted with was supprrtative and responsive.
General Clerk I (Former Employee) – Lees Summit, MO – August 17, 2017
We went through 4 HR leads in 3 months. Every one of them quit because it was an awful place to be and none of the management seemed to know what to do and all the employees were unhappy. all the GC1s get paid the same and the only way to get more money was to go for the different positions (that rarely came) and were also underpaid for how much work you had to do. I worked there for 3 years and didn't get a raise once.
No job advancement/culture is worse that being in Afghanistan
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 11, 2017
I originally took this job (San Diego) while I was going to school for my masters. The contract for doing administrative work for USCIS was awarded to another company. So their intentions were to switch my position from salary to hourly and on top of that, it was significantly lower. Besides that the people I work with and the benefits were not bad. Unfortunately, the management doesn't have any control of what goes on because the USCIS manager makes all the calls and everything (and I mean everything!) Talk about micromanagement to the extreme. No initiative was allowed because of the micromanagement style of the government. The most enjoyable part was networking with other government employees.
Mircomanagement, lack of collaboration between FCi and government
