Bills itself as Int'l Dev firm, but it's just a typical beltway bodyshop.
Lack of direction from internal management. Lines of authority were not clearly defined. Policies were not defined. There was zero accountability; errors were swept under the rug to cover for managers or their favorites. I saw multiple cases (at multiple offices) of what should have resulted in firings just be ignored and no fixes to policy or process be implemented.
The culture tends to be aggressive. You get some aggressively competent and some aggressively stupid. Mostly, though, I think if you're on a project team you'll be pleased with the company and leadership. The overhead departments seemed to be high turnover.
and the corporate events are just poorly thought out. Free bagels? yay! Once every two weeks? Seriously? Are these bagels made out of gold? Wine parties! yay! after hours! ok, but what if I have kids to pickup and live outside DC? Tough luck, then. Potluck lunches! really? What, am I supposed to carry a crockpot on the metro? Free snacks! Except... do people actually eat kale chips?
convenient to metro/commuter bus; high salary
toxic culture, unqualified managers, arbitrary standards
