Company unprepared for fast growth

Peraton grew from 2,000 to over 20,000 employees in 1-2 years due to acquisitions. They were unprepared for this fast growth. As an employee I was contracted to an IT support role within a government facility. Pay and benefits were lower than that of the company they purchased and below market during the time I was there.

Excellent place to work! Best govt contractor in town

Overall Peraton is a great place to work. I’ve been a Recruiter in this industry for over 20 years and this has been one of my favorite jobs! I support the Annapolis Junction area programs. If you are a recruiter, you know this is one of the most challenging customer spaces to recruit for. We have several large (IT/Engineering) prime contracts with the MD customer. We have plenty of opportunity for growth and advancement for our current employees. If employees want to try something new, they are encouraged and supported in identifying opportunities from within. We’ve been winning a lot of new work (prime contracts), both with the MD customer and other govt agencies. So the opportunities really are endless. Most of the positions you see on our careers page are due to growth. I’m really excited to see what the future holds for us! Peraton is still a very young even though we have grown quite large in a short period of time. We do care about our employees and we listen. Employees are encouraged to complete surveys throughout the year and the company does take action based on the survey results. This may be one of my favorite things. Is that we do listen. I’ve seen so much change, for the better, firsthand, all as a direct result of the company listening to us.The benefits are fantastic. And if you have a polygraph the benefits are even better. fully employer paid, with 5 weeks of PTO and many more! We also offer bonus incentives to our employees, even Recruiters! Honestly, I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t truly believe in the company and our culture. I’ve been here 3 years - 


Excellent benefits, bonus incentives, career opportunities


Young company growing pains, not really a con because the company adapts

Good Work; Lots of Travel; Misleading

It’s a good job if you don’t mind driving. However, due to training being online, you are very unprepared when you go into the field. Also, it’s advertised as flexible. But, you have to work around other people to make appointments. Some people can only meet once a week and you have to meet them at that time to get points. But, if you’re fine with spontaneity and having to learn things on your own, you’ll be fine

Your experience will vary

It really depends on the team you’re placed with. Some teams are amazing, and some are toxic. The benefits are decent, and there’s good odds of teleworking or having flexible work hours at least some of the time. Overall, it’s a good place to work.

Awful place to work

Underpaid and overworked. Expected to work more than 40 hours but if you take over time you are piled on with more work which then means you won't meet your numbers and if you don't meet your numbers you never get a raise. The pay is horrendous and they lied about bonus pay. Additionally the salary raises are laughable. They pay poverty level wages and the salary does not equate the amount of work an stress this job provides. Training was useless, you have to learn everything on your own which takes 8-12 months. I could go on with many more reasons this company is not good but I'm too exhausted from all the work I have to do for them. I would stay away from this job. There's a reason their turn over rate is high.

Good Direct Management, Poor High-level Management

The company is alright. Culture is lacking, and not much changes occur. Very slow to catch up with the needs of the industry. Overall, the pay is on the low side as well and promotions are not considered.

Decent place to work. Rotating 24/7 schedule. Management had their favorites. Pay was reasonable but due to project creep, I decided to leave. More responsibilities yet no amazing pay increase.

Stay away

I would stay away from here. Metrics are always changing, management does not speak to you or lead you properly. If they dont like you they will find every way to make you quit.

Typical Government Contractor

Company is rudderless and has average to poor leadership. Too many levels of management and little to no strategic direction. 100% of the focus is "make your numbers". Tactical decisions deter long term future.

Required To Work One Year

Let’s be clear I am not known to stick around at a job longer than a few months I like to move around especially at “throw away” jobs as I call them, I’ve been working here maybe 2 weeks so I can’t say if this is going to be a job I can’t manage but I do think I’ll be good at this and so far everybody has been helpful, the thing about signing a contract though is definitely intimidating for me, especially because the penalty for quitting before then is a high price, and the policys on if you are fired don’t seem to be as clear (just keep that in mind), they do put a lot of money into new hires however so it makes sense in a way I understand why they have that contract in place, and it seems fair to me, they provide governments furnished laptops, badges, IDs, work phones, I feel well equipped to do this job honestly and I am excited! I’ll check back in after a year.

Great Job but need hard to grasp

Great Job, unfortunately training in lacking HUGE. Supervisors dont seem to care. This is a fast pace place and it's all about the numbers. If you catch on quick great, if not it can be very difficult and stressful.

Very stressful workplace. Poor training methods. Required to work one year with the company. Everyone has complains or things they disagree with or doesn’t make sense but are scared to speak up fearing the loss of employmen

Overworked and underpaid! No work life balance and unrealistic expectations! Insufficient training provided. Barely getting help on workload. They act like they care when they really don’t! Stay away!

Too Corperate and Not Concerned With Employees

Bought out the small company I was working for and showed little concern for employees. Lost contract that we currently held and was not concerned with placing employees in other areas of company before the contract ended.
