Senior Information Assurance Analyst (Former Employee) – Crystal City, VA – February 26, 2018
Work for me was exciting, because I had the opportunity to meet new customers, interacting with them on a daily basics, and be a part of assuring that their equipment allowed them to complete their task.
There was a great opportunity to learned so much about different equipment and platforms. Loved my work.
The most important part of my support, was the opportunity to work across many platforms, and the chance to continue support to different Agencies, all across US.

Fun Company to work for!!! They know how to have fun and get work done. The company still has a lot of growth to go through and that will cause growing pains over time between the corporate leadership and the contracted staff on the customers site. I would work for this company in a heart beat again.
Great place to work, very focused on employees and culture

One of the best companies I've ever worked for in terms of job satisfaction and employee focus. Going above and beyond is recognized and encouraged. Hope they will continue to follow their core values as they grow.
Senior VMware Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – August 3, 2017
place of business was hard to get to on a day to day basis, but the best thing is the staff never left you on your own to sort out issue. Also the people in the team were the most knowledgeable that I have ever worked with.
ANALYST (Former Employee) – Virginia – July 20, 2017
Over time the culture shifted from a family-centric to a self-centric environment where office politics and individual relationships were the order of the day. I had a wonderful direct supervisor who was concerned about my career growth but overall the company did not offer much opportunity for growth outside of a favored few or those at HQ.

Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – October 25, 2015
I worked with a great group of Engineers at Netcentrics. There was lots of turnover, almost yearly of both management and staff. I survived many cuts in the past, and saw alot of good people come and go. Regardless, I was fortunate to work with such a knowledgeable group of individuals. You will not be forgotten.
Lots to learn and lots of engineers to learn from
yearly turnover of management and staff. Contract issues and concerns.
Project Management (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – September 20, 2015
After being acquired by Haystax, the culture at NetCentrics changed significantly. It used to have a small company feel but that has been replaced with new management. Overall it is a reasonable place to work.
This review is somewhat invalid as Netcentrics has been acquired by a company called Haystax, but I'll relate my opinion anyway . Originally founded by three geeks ( for want of a better description ) this company had a warm and honest interaction with it's initially small workforce. Primarily a network admin orientated company, it was awarded a major service desk contract in 2012 which changed everything.
More than tripling in size overnight, it's inadequate infrastructure began to show. An unprofessional web and email site setup using off-the-shelf MS products, focuses on "Happy Birthday" greetings for the most part and is joke to most employees. Their time card and earnings websites use Intuit and another app that are more suited for a small company than a company of 300+ employees.
Their vacation policy is a bone of contention for most employees and shows a lack of consideration on the company's part. Instead of alloting a portion of the annual vacation at the start of employment , an employee must accrue all leave. So what's wrong with that?
Well, NONE of the traditional holidays are company paid. You must use PTO for Christmas, New Years, Thanksgiving, etc. If you start with the company in September -October , you will therefore find it difficult not to be in a negative PTO situation by February. Naturally the 26th, of December and every other government closure must be utilized with PTO , even though no one has control over the weather or government's whims. Working extra hours to live with this restrictive vacation policy is hard, and you cannot bank thesemore... extra hours for a contingency in the future.They must be used within the month worked.
Management represents the very worst in a small , but now big company. Cutthroat office politics, and unyielding directives, are the order of the day. Turn-over of employees is rampant but no one at HR sees that as a problem. It's hilarious, when one sees all the request for emergency work hours because of being short staffed. Advancement and exposure to different skills are non-existent unless one is a member of the inner circle and has a brown nose. Employee happiness is low and most will ,and do, leave as soon as an opportunity presents itself
This is not the same company that it was years ago. It's sale and acquision was one of "get our foot in the door" on the part of Haystax
If you are considering employment with this company be aware of what you will be coming into. Ask about their vacation policy and advancement opportunities
