Bad work environment
Senior Technical Writer/Editor (Former Employee) –  Bethesda, MDApril 6, 2018
You never knew if you had a job from week to week let alone from day to day. Boss overly critical. Deadlines due with no notice. The most enjoyable part of my day was leaving.
Pros
Teem members worked together
Cons
Mean work environment

Bureaucracy at its worst
Senior SQL Server Database Administrator (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, CODecember 7, 2017
The tasks required for this role could be done by 1 DBA and one jr DBA for on call rotation. The other 2 roles are not necessary leaving nothing for all 4 to work on. Terrible working environment, chiefly because of the "lead" DBA, who could not manage people at all and was much more concerned with looking good for the government
"chiefs".

Mid-Size Company Specializing in Cloud Services
Director of Contracts (Current Employee) –  Bethesda, MDSeptember 19, 2017
InfoZen is being acquired by ManTech, so it is impossible at this time to determine exactly what the culture will be like going forward. Turnover in the company is high, especially in the executive positions, recruiting and marketing. There is flexibility in work hours, which is appreciated.
Pros
Fair compensation; generally a 40 hour workweek, because there is no approved purchasing system, paperwork is at a minimum.
Cons
Current management isn't especially employee focused

Very stressful job atmosphere
Voice IP Tenicahan (Former Employee) –  Bethesda, MDAugust 30, 2017
Every Friday you see someone is packing up his staff leaving the company and you just wonder when will it mine! Who would like to work under such unstable work atmosphere ? You can work hard after hours as per our customer's request and you will be denied to get paid overtime if it is not planned and approved ahead of time. Sometimes they will deny you to pay over time even if it is approved by the Government. The so called manager don't have a knowledge to run the Unified communications technology department.

Awesome
SCCM Network Engineer (Current Employee) –  Williston, VTJuly 25, 2017
The people and work is amazing. Working to help better the United States is an amazing career choice. As with any job, there are some issues you may encounter, but I think you'll find the work more enjoyable than the issues you may encounter.

Messy Workplace
Recruiting Coordinator (Contract) (Former Employee) –  Bethesda, MDJuly 18, 2017
Employees are not valued while expectations, for the small amount of employees there in-house, are far too high and unrealistic. Majority of upper management does not know what their roles and responsibilities are as well as belittling the employees who work under them. The day to day employees are friendly and the only part of my work day I looked forward to other than leaving work at the end of the day. There is no real foundation within the company.
Pros
friendly in-house employees, food trucks every thursday.
Cons
Horrible management, Rude telework employees.

Most stressful job I've ever had
DBA (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COMay 11, 2017
The work itself was extremely interesting, but that was eventually outweighed by the poor culture and constant pressure. Management did not support their employees. We worked under constant threat of being fired. I don't know if that place met the legal definition of a hostile work environment, but it certainly met a practical one. No recruiters in Colorado Springs question why you want to leave that job. There was so much turnover, they'd see Infozen on the resume and say "enough said."
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Hostile work environment

They ask you to be patient while they obtain your clearance but then they just leave you high and dry
New hire - TSA (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COOctober 25, 2016
They tell you to please be patient as the clearance process can take many months in order to receive your top secret clearance. They keep emailing you to please be patient and they are happy you are coming on board with the company. Then out of no where they send you an email saying they are rescinding your offer because the process is taking too long for them. They want you to be patient but they wont be patient for your clearance. What an awesome company to work for! Don't hold your breath as that tells you they think of you as an expendable rather than an asset.
Pros
pay seemed like it would've been nice
Cons
They expect you to wait for them, but they won't wait for you.

Dysfunctional Management
O&M Technician (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COSeptember 21, 2016
Middle and upper management is completely out of touch with the employees and the mission. The only time they take action is when the customer jumps down their throat and their only response is blame shifting and empty promises. Headquarters is focused 100% on profit and 0% on the people that earn it for them. The mission is worthwhile but even that can't sustain you in the dysfunctional InfoZen culture. All of the good employees either convert to Government employees or get burnt out and leave. The mediocre or worse employees stay forever, increasing the workload on the few good people that stick it out.
Pros
Worthwhile mission
Cons
Management and corporate culture are terrible

High Up Time Percentages for IT
Service Desk Administrator (Current Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COJuly 16, 2015
InfoZen supports the Secure Flight computer systems and other programs for the TSA. They have the highest up time percentage I've ever seen in a 20+yr history of working IT system support. The management is fairly uninvolved day to day and has a preference for the Maryland site rather than locally. Employees are frequently former military as a security clearance is required.
Pros
they will sponsor new hires getting a security clearance
Cons
never enough staffing to get job done or take PTO, no raises for a long time

Has no idea what they are doing
Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 1, 2014
InfoZen sees employees as an expense instead of an asset. They cut employee benefits wherever possible and will not pay a person what they are worth if they can avoid it.

They are very top heavy, having more management than technical talent. The technical talent is expected to be an expert in everything and is expected to handle far more work than is reasonable with little to do direction on priorities or task management.

The average day is spent figuring out what work needs to be prioritized and sifting through email in between a multitude of meetings. For all of the management that they have you would think the management could handle meetings with the customer and let the technical talent get stuff done, but that is not the case, driving productivity down.

Co-workers are great but InfoZen has no idea how to run a successful business.
Pros
You could learn a few things if you are entry-level
Cons
terrible healthcare, management does not know what they are doing

Great mission, good people, tense environment.
Asset Management Specialist (Current Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COMay 7, 2014
The Colorado Springs contract that I work on is great due to the mission. For the most part the people are good to work with. Their is a certain amount of tension in the workplace. Much of this is between the customer, and the contractors. I have been at this location for almost eight years, and the tension has subsided quite a bit over the last couple of years.

The corporate offices for the company are in Maryland, and the Colorado Springs staff are in some ways the "red headed step children". Employees seem to be thought of as children, to be seen but not heard.
Pros
Free coffee, ok salary, flexible hours.
Cons
Low to no raises, lack of concern for employees as people with families, mortgages, etc.
