Typical Beltway Bandit
Senior Analyst (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCMay 23, 2017
WBB has the opportunity to be great. They have the opportunity to really help their government clients do great things. And they squander it.

The C-level executives are just plain Old. They are out of touch with the advancing times. A lot of them are ex-military who would rather talk about their sea stories and anecdotes than get to know their evolving workforce.

Most of the work is done on client-site. If you have a great client, it will work out very well. If you have a belligerent client, the company won't do anything to help or protect you. You're replaceable. And they let you know it.

A lot of their less-than-ideal work situations are due to the fickleness of government contracting, but the company itself does nothing to help the morale or wellbeing of its employees. Christmas presents? A golf marker disguised as a "challenge coin." A "thank you" would've been better received, at least it would've been something vaguely personal.

WBB also suffers from what I see a lot of big companies having to deal with: being relegated to sub-contractor status in order to get work on small-business-only contracts. In a lot of cases, it means the small business may not have the correct people on hand to run the project, so they have to hire by availability instead of by quality. This can put WBB's employees in a bad spot if the prime contractor fails to produce results.

I have to write something meet the minimum character count, but nothing else needs to be said because it would be worthless. Profits before people. Enough said?

Wonderful client
Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Warner Robins, GAJanuary 2, 2017
Challenging, and frustrating at the same time. Great group of people to work with but no room for advancement or growth. Could be a headache dealing with homesite employees.

I work for the WBB but I'm located across the country so I do not have any experience dealing with the management team face to face.

Good old boy company
Sr. Contracts Manager (Former Employee) –  Reston, VAFebruary 15, 2014
Management had no clue how the real world did business. Many x-military that had never worked in private industry. Bad thing was is that they lead by bad management. Company has since been sold and new management is moving in and replacing the bad management. Things can only get better. There was unfortunately two classes of employees, those that were Consultants ( x-Military) and the lower class which was the support staff.
Pros
co-workers
Cons
poor leadership

Great Organiztation
Consultant (Current Employee) –  RestonJanuary 10, 2014
Great potential and the employees are some of the most intelligent and hard working individuals I've worked with. Must be flexible and patient to produce quality products for the client. Only improve would be executive communication to employees on career progression opportunities.

Technical Writer (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCApril 19, 2012
There isn't anything about WBB that stands out as exemplary or outstanding. To be fair, WBB recently merged with the company I work(ed) for, NetStar-1, and my review pertains more to NetStar-1 than to WBB.
