Day to Day Responsibilites
Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Ashburn, VAMarch 6, 2018
The typical day on the job consists of supporting multiple Gov't contracts, assist with customer requests, generate quotes, customer service, and process purchase orders/credit card purchases. It's important to keep an accurate forecast. When supporting multiple contracts,it's key in understanding the contracts such as discount structure, terms of contract, points of contacts, etc. The most enjoyable part of the job is when I have achieved in making a customer happy. .
Pros
This is not a "Micro" managed environment.

Income too Less, and not alot of work to be done
Asset Manager/Inventory Technician (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCOctober 26, 2017
Income is too less to support a family of 5 that lives in an area with a median of 75000. 50000 is all they could offer. Spouse doesn't work, so 5 people living off of 50000 doesn't help. There is not a lot of work. It is a very slow pace, and sit behind a computer 90% of the day, doing nothing certainly isn't my cup of tea.

Good place to work
Network Analyst (Current Employee) –  Reston, VAMarch 3, 2017
Intelligent Decisions (ID) is a good place to work. They have an "ID" portal, which they keep updated with job vacancies, and current news at ID. They have a very nice facility in Ashburn, VA, with a huge break room. The first thing I thought when I saw the break room was, they must think a lot of their employees.

Program is on the down slide of usefullness
DSTS Trainer (Former Employee) –  Fort Leonard Wood, MOMarch 2, 2017
Relevant at one time, but the program has exhausted it's ability to be productive. No where to progress and as users decline, so does the number of locations.

Avoid if you can
UNIX Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Wright-Patterson AFB, OHMarch 31, 2016
Intelligent Decisions is a small company that grew, but didn't keep up with their own internal needs. In doing so:

They state $5000 a year in training, but the process to get approval for the training is so broken that you can't get the training approved.

Their staff eval system was so poor that it created a two year period of no evals, and therefore no raises.

Then when they did attempt to do evals, the promised pay raises never happened - this is after the CEO plead guilty to bribery.
So in four years I only got one pay raise.

Then to add insult to injury, ID changed their health insurance in the middle of the year. I started getting bills of $2100 for a CT Scan for my son that would have been only a $200 deductible earlier.

Other contracting companies are avoiding partnering with ID due to the Dept of Justice oversight as a result of the CEO bribery scandal.

Avoid ID unless you really need a pay check, then be aware that they will not be there for you.
Pros
Its a paycheck
Cons
CEO plead guilty to bribery, other companies are avoiding them due to Dept of Justice oversight

Digital security contractor for the US government.
Site Manager and field engineer (Current Employee) –  Boise, IDMarch 8, 2016
Intelligent Decisions is an excellent company to work for, in the network support, and digital security fields.

In my time there, they created and sold the Dismounted Soldier Training System, until getting underbid for the War Fighter Focus contract by CSRA.

They have excellent benefits, and are prone to hiring not just intelligent but incredibly creative and passionate employees.

They are excellent at what they do, and I would recommend their security contracts.
Pros
Very proactive company, always seeking to partnerships, customers, and contracts.
Cons
Not prepared for hardware creation environment, or maintaining RandD contracts

Data Analytics Engineer (Former Employee) –  Williamsburg, VAJanuary 10, 2016
Company is flexible about schedule, and provides decent pay and benefits, but there's no drive in this place. If you prefer a fast-paced, dynamic working environment, stay away.

Very stressful work environment
Director, Air Force Operations (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHOctober 3, 2015
My responsibilities included management of all active Air Force Programs, for ID's Services Organization, which was established a new division to grow DoD, and other government work. The co-workers within the company were very supportive, and a pleasure overall to work with. However, there was a problem at the Senior Management which impacted continuity of operations to support customer delivery effort. This issue caused a lack of cooperation's and continuity in support of field operations.
Pros
Co-worker support and interaction
Cons
Senior Leadership
