Systems Administrator (Former Employee), Huntsville, AL – May 12, 2014
Pros: free catered lunches, highly competitive benefits, strong, intelligent management, down to earth
I've worked for companies in the past that simply didn't care whether you lived or died. If it were possible to put those companies at one end of the spectrum and this one at the other, this is how I feel about this company. I can't say enough good things about this place. The owners are extremely approachable and friendly. Their benefits package is – more... one of the best I've experienced. You can tell they genuinely care about their employees. – less
Sensors Technical Lead (Current Employee), Huntsville, AL – May 9, 2014
Pros: benefits, atmosphere, recognition
I came to Five Stones through the recommendation of a friend. Prior to working here, I was a government engineer. At first, Five Stones was just a conduit to some better work. I had no specific loyalty to the company and intended to shop around to see if there were any better opportunities. The company has quickly earned my loyalty. They don't hesitate – more... to recognize solid employees, and the atmosphere is wonderful.
One small example of recognition: I was recognized by a customer for good work on a project in an email. The email was sent to Five Stones as well. Two days later I had a note in my mailbox saying "Thanks for representing us well!" The note also included $100 in gift cards.
There are constant opportunities to do fun things with the group and they even have a charitable organization that I enjoy participating in. Some fun things so far: Hockey night, bbq after work, bowling charity event.
I'm looking forward to growing with Five Stones for a long time. – less

Pros: meaningful work, benefits, family
5SRC is a family oriented business that really cares about its' employees. 5SRC has fostered a family first atmosphere and everyone has a voice.

Senior Logistics/STAMIS Manager (Current Employee), Huntsville, AL – April 1, 2014
Pros: there are so many but to point out a few, "family oriented place to work, benefits and pay"
I have been with Five Stones every since 2010 and they have been the best Company around to work for. I feel like I'm back in the Military minus deployments because this team takes care of their own. It's a family atmosphere and a home away from home. The Leadership is so down to earth and they not only take the time, but they make the time to ensure – more... you and your family is very well taken care of and is apart of the overall family team. – less
Good place to work management on top of employee needs
F.P.F.S Installer (Former Employee), overseas – September 20, 2013
Pros: quick payment on travel vouchers
Cons: 401 k hiccup caused me not to become vested!
I had an over all good work experience with 5SRC. My overseas PM was on the ball with last minute changes and didn't hesitate to get us taken care of with things that needed to be completed to meet the primary contractors specifications. Per-diem, and travel vouchers were handled very well and accurately. I would recommend 5SRC as a place of employment – more... for anyone I know. – less
Core values, core values, core values. How refreshing!
Chief Scientist (Current Employee), HQ – April 10, 2013
Pros: benefits, honesty from management, atmosphere of corporate growth
Cons: minor: growing pains
Hard work isn't so hard when you know that the executive team is on your side. They do the right thing and keep their promises, even if it hurts the short term bottom line. They run like a family and put a very high value on their reputation and building corporate relationships. As an employee, it's easy to know what is going on when your bosses are – more... honest (both about the good things and bad things going on). That's the advantage when a company is based on core values. – less
