Intelligence Production Manager (Former Employee), Charlottesville, VA – June 28, 2014
Pros: pay, time off, lack of accountability, work/life balance
Cons: you kind of need to be a dirtbag to do the work
As my job was supporting the military as a contractor my pay was very good. The contract had deployments as part of the job, but no one was ever forced to deploy. The previous company that had this contract paid about 25 percent better. I think the supply and demand ratio had evened out with contractors and a change of contract was required to reflect – more... this. Compared to the previous company, employee support was lacking and it really felt like a clearing house sell for people with clearances when they took over. I eventually acquired a moral objection for fleecing tax payers and left this job. – less
Journeyman Insurgent and IED Analyst (Current Employee), Charlottesville, VA – February 8, 2014
Pros: flexible work schedule
Work days are 8 hours. Lunch time does not count, but that is alright. Flexible on when you start and stop as long as you put your 8 hours in daily, and 40 weekly. Great place to start right after leaving the Army.
Battlefield Forensic Inst'or / Latent Prt Examiner (Former Employee), Various military installations throughout the USA – October 4, 2013
You would travel to various military installations to carry out your mission. This company introduced me to the largest collection of subject matter experts that I have had the pleasure to know. The management was great and easy to work for.
All-Source Analyst (Former Employee), Afghanistan – January 24, 2013
Pros: some people seem to care
Cons: low pay, no real advancement
Six3 will pay you garbage and wonder why you aren't more grateful. Some of the management really seems to care but not anyone who sets your pay. Many people take Six3 jobs to get overseas and find a better position. They are notorious for drastically undercutting the competition on contracts and paying dirt wages.
Do you mind sharing what they offered you as a stateside salary and your OCONUS/deployment salary? I'm currently in talks with the company and I'm curious as to what you were paid/offered compared to me. Thank so much!

Six3 is a fun and exciting place to work for! During my time deployed they did not stop to assist me in every way possible to insure that my experience was satisfactory. I would recommend this company to anyone in the intelligence community.
