It is a misogynist culture; a boy's club with a strong mission that the company completely ignores. With important customers and programs across the world, the focus is always in the numbers and not the quality. There are some fantastic employees who go above and beyond, some of which are still there and some of which are long the-most of which were fired for insane unbelievable circumstances. Leadership is a huge problem, mostly due to who owns the company. There is so much conflict of interest, personal vendettas and egos that have helped drive this company in the wrong direction. You always feel like you are walking on eggshells and at any given time, misfortune could strike.
Sure, one could say there is always risk when working for a government contractor; however, there is much to be said about what the culture and environment springs upon its employees that scream immorality, irresponsibility, and completely untrustworthy.
This company DOES NOT do the right thing. There is no sense of accountability or team. It's a culture of dog eat dog. One will be lucky to encounter upward mobility. And if you are a woman, you get the respect from peers, but not your manager. Expect hostility, expect to be demeaned and belittled; and yelled at by grown men with obscenities. Fight for every dollar and every hour worked and always save every performance review and document every negative encounter. This company should be sued for its malpractice, violation of it's own ethics and rules, and will make threatening statements and lies to defend its name, no matter the cost.
Travel, great PM leadership, does great work for government
Poor Management, Lack of competitive pay, lack of equality for women, poor work culture
