Manager (Former Employee) - Reston, VA - January 25, 2020
If you work hard you will succeed with this company and they will help you along the way. Great mentors along the way. I was able to learn so much about how contracts work and how to deal with clients. Thanks for the great opportunities this company gave me.

Office Administrator (Former Employee) - Rosslyn, VA - May 28, 2019
Management breaks promise after promise, all while claiming loyalty and transparency are their greatest qualities. Employees who were once fired for poor performance are somehow rehired as managers, and the PM is dishing out homie hookups to every friend and relative of his in the area.
Compensation was excellent, benefits were terrible. Most co-workers were a joy to be around, but this is NOT a company you want to stick with for more than a year.
This was a learning period for me and I think the company. We were both learning and growing as we went along in our duties. They were accommodating for the most part but there were bumps along the way.
This was a contract company working with the DOD. They did an excellent job, I don't recall having an issues with the companies delivery and management of personnel. I hope that still have continued and future contracts with DOD.
Electrical Estimator Planner (Former Employee) - Arlington, VA - December 9, 2015
Planner / Estimator Electrical Engineer for Global Preventative Maintenance operation supporting Building Systems for various United States Department of State Facilities overseas (Embassies and Consulates), known as The International Maintenance Program (IMAP).
I discovered after working at Alutiiq for a short while, that Management did not take the time or did not know how to instruct the Report writers properly. Neither of the two managers, that I had, were on the same page, so how was I to know what to do properly.
Contractor (Former Employee) - Vienna, VA - January 7, 2015
Working for the National Guard Bureau has been one of the most rewarding experience in my life. To work shoulder to shoulder with the brave men and women in the Army and Air Force has given me a more gratifying appreciation for living in the greatest country on earth.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) - Arlington, VA - November 16, 2014
My typical day at work can get interesting, I often try to priortize the day before but you can do that when you have 35 guys in field that is on a different time zone then you are. Working here has taught me to be prepared to makes changes during the process of doing your job. My co-workers are team players. The hardest part of the job is leaving something undone, because you can't get hold of the person you need to help the contractors in the field. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with these group of people.
DS/ATA Contractor - Budget Specialist (Former Employee) - Dunn Loring, VA - May 14, 2013
I was a contractor for the government who worked under a government supervisor who lacked basic management skills. Alutiiq not only had to deal with the person's irrational personality during meetings and through email, but also defend their employees against harassment, sexual harassment and wrongful termination. A lot of companies would not stand by their employees this way especially when close to their contract being up for re-bid.
