Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The company offers a good benefits package including 401k. I enjoy the luncheons they provide once in awhile. The only down side about this job is the lack of job security as with any other government contracting jobs.

Pros

Tuition reimbursement

Cons

No job security

Good company with good people

Five Stones is for the most part a pretty great place to work. Managers and supervisors always treat everyone with respect. I've heard that the pay is on the lower side for some positions, but mine seems more than fair. HR and management have always been supportive and understanding when I've had to miss work for family emergencies or military duties.

Pros

Great people, Great environment, yearly bonus

Cons

some positions have less than competitive wages

Corporate Really Cares About Employees

5 Stones is a great place to work and upper management truly cares about employees. Everyone is treated like family here. The HR department is particularly awesome and extra benefits, such as tuition reimbursement, really help make 5 Stones a stand out employer.

Pros

Flexible schedules, employee of the quarter awards, tuition reimbursement, bonus structure

Best Places to Work

Five Stones Research Corporation is a wonderful company to work for. It is an honor to work for a company where everyone is so supportive and cares about every employee individually. I am coming up on my one year anniversary and I can truly say it the best place to work for. The positive moral helps me look forward to comping into the office daily. If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life.

Outstanding Mamangement!

It was a privilege to work with 5SRC. The management is supportive and interactive with employees but, not bothersome. They communicate with you the right amount to keep your informed but not stifle you. The company culture is friendly, quarterly functions and a big Holiday party for the entire workforce. Easy transition coming aboard and the same for when you leave. Recommend this company resoundingly.

Started out good and then got worse

The company was better when it was smaller. As it's grown, it's gotten much worse on a lot of things that made it stand out. It's become a lot like a number of other government contractors.

Very good company, with good benefits. The work is challenging and there are many opportunities to learn and grow.

Five Stones Research Corp. is a very good company that places a great deal of importance on creating a good work environment. Management is focused on ensuring that employees have the tools they need and that the work load is manageable. I've enjoyed the personal opportunities to grow my skills and use them in productive ways on the job. I am treated as a professional.

Producitve Company Providing Great Opportunities for the Future

Five Stones Research Corporation has been a great company to work for. I have learned several new procedures that I have never dealt with, along with new tasks. The employees and supervisors here are patient and are willing to teach until you are able to take over a task on your own. The benefits you receive at Five Stones are great, as well as the opportunities.

Great place

Great place to work. Management is great. Laid back work environment. Christmas parties and lunch-ins. Wish there was a set pay raise time frame but you can’t put a dollar amount on a work/life balance.

Great place to work

Great leadership and HR. Healthcare is the best I've seen in the contracting business. Leadership is always helping employees try to better themselves.

Pros

Great people all around

Cons

Poor management

Management do not treats employees with dignity or respect. None of the management will address your complaints when safety issues arise. ie; Vehicle safety equipment and maintenance, health and safety issues. All their management cares about is filling vacant positions when someone do not report for work or resigns. This company will hire anyone in order to fill a vacancy qualified or not. Experience means nothing to this company. Hostile working environment and unsafe working conditions. Very bad management personnel.

Pros

Pay and lunch

Cons

Bad management unsafe working conditions

Great company to work for

I loved my time at 5SRC even though I was there as a contractor for several months. Would love to work for them again. This is a good company and the upper management are great to work for.

Not a Great Company

I was handed off to 5SRC from another employer when the contract changed. When 5SRC took over, they chose not to give SCA (Services Contract Act) employees their vacation until their anniversary date, even though no other contracting company before them did this. This amounted to many employees not being able to take vacation for 3-12 months (mine was 8 months, even though I had worked in the same position for 10+ years). When the SCA employees complained, management told us that they were simply following the law. While this is true, the law also states that employers can allow employees to accrue vacation, which is what every other contracting company did. Although 5SRC management COULD have allowed us to accrue vacation, they CHOSE not to. This created a hardship on many employees, especially since the contract changed prior to the Christmas holidays. I found another job within 2 months, and I now receive 19 days of accrued vacation time. The only positive that I have to say about them is that when the old contract ended on a Friday, 5SRC made sure that the employees were covered by insurance starting on Saturday, so that we would not be without health insurance over the weekend. I was impressed by this, but overall, I was still dissatisfied with the company.

Pros

no lapse in insurance

Cons

treatment of SCA employees and vacation

Work day

A typical work day has you show up, go to meetings, and from then on you never return to the office. You will spend majority of your time in the truck and waiting for other projects to begin or end.

Short Stint

The benefits and culture was outstanding though I did not enjoy the longevity expected. There were distinct racial issues internally that were poorly addressed.
