Great place to work until being bought out.
Project Controller/Financial Program Analyst (Former Employee) –  Ventura, CAMay 24, 2018
MAR Incorporated was a great place to work but the vagaries on contract funding was difficult to deal with. Being bought out and losing small business set aside and future work was demoralizing.
Pros
Flexible work life balance, motivated talented local team
Cons
Losing small business set aside and ability to re-compete was too much to overcome.

Awkward Moments, Unique Contract
Security Analyst (Former Employee) –  Rockville, MDMay 27, 2014
This is a good company with people in the corporate office who try very hard to do the right thing and take care of their employees. The contract culture and leadership philosophy were unique, and largely driven by a demanding customer's contractual requirements.
Pros
Good employer, solid benefits package, interesting work
Cons
Contract site culture, demanding customer

MAR, Inc. Review.
Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCMarch 7, 2012
MAR, Inc. has given me the opportunity to regain employment after being laid off from HeiTech Services. The staff as a whole has been very responsive and work to get any administrative resolved quickly. Unfortunately, I work off-site so I am unable to experience the office work culture.
Pros
people are very understanding, great 401k benefits
Cons
work off-site so i miss a lot of company functions, health insurance, contract is ending
