Great work environment but lacks advancement or job security.
Fork Lift Operator/Order Picker (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – February 14, 2017
Awesome workplace to be involved with but management is very inconsistent and the promise of a permanent job after hard work was non present. 10 temps were hired and non were asked to stay permanent including myself. Nevertheless, they are a very reputable company and they are listed as #48 and #42 on the Forbes and Fortune 500 lists respectively. It was very rewarding work in the regard that it is the leading defense contractor for the armed forces and private military.
Hour lunch, independent work duties and responsibilities, incentives and luncheons.
No advancement, no individual worth, lack of team environment and morale.
Very competitive work environment with hundreds of professionals.

Very competitive work environment with hundreds of professionals. There seems to be a lack of downward communication from many of the high level managers. Overall, I would recommend people to work for ADS, however, there seems to be a fairly high turnover rate within many of the sales positions.

In my opinion ADS is the best small business, government contracting company one could work for. The culture encourages a team environment. ADS is a results driven culture that encourages their employees to enjoy their jobs and the people they work with.
The company's knowledge of government procurement and the warfighter's needs keeps ADS ahead of the curve.

I enjoyed myself when I worked at ADS. There were plenty of mandatory breaks and little extras that made the experience enjoyable. The only knock I would give ADS is that management tried to copy the Asian format of a work environment. It was by far the quietest warehouse I have ever worked in.
