Management & Job culture outweigh the Benefits
General (Former Employee) – VA – April 19, 2015
While the benefits were great, the job culture and management needed work. For example, a "job well done" from a colleague to managers were not acknowledge and if they were, came with a backhanded complement. The company culture slowly eroded from a relaxed, open environment to one of borderline hostile management and constant complaints about "no one doing their jobs." Certainly the concept of teamwork was thrown out the window. To their credit, they did create a small team to try to solve problems within the company, however, in certain departments, this was impossible to do, or wasn't a priority-it's not clear which of these is the reason why it failed. It was also made clear that advancement was not a possibility. So, if you don't mind just coasting along and sacrificing what enjoyment you could possibly have at work for a nice 401k plan and medical benefits, this is the place for you.
