You work alone
Background Investigator (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXSeptember 20, 2018
The company sets you up to fail. The company expects you to produce 60 hours of work in a 40 hour work week. If you request overtime, you are expected then to do over 60 hours of work in that amount of time. The company has unrealistic goals for you. And if you think you are going to have a flexible schedule, think again. You will be stuck at your computer until the late hours of the night. You will not see your family even if you are under the same roof. You also will not have a social life. The company does not support their employees and their well being.

Hard pass
Receptionist (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXSeptember 19, 2018
If you like a dead end job with no advancement and the possibility that you will have to train underlings and then eventually get fired, then apply here. Management is garbage. Pay is garbage. Morale is the whole dumpster truck of garbage.

Stay Away
Special Investigator (Former Employee) –  Reston, VASeptember 10, 2018
This company is not for individuals married, or with kids. You pretty much are a slave to the job. Once you leave training you're on your own in every way shape and form.
Pros
You get health benefits and a paycheck
Cons
Stressful, Deadlines are unrealistic, Low pay

Backgrounds Investigator (Current Employee) –  Savannah, GASeptember 9, 2018
The pay is decent and the supervisors/coworkers are helpful. Th more time and effort you put into getting things done and completed will prove to be more helpful at the end of the day.

Over worked underpaid
Clerk (Current Employee) –  Hingham, MASeptember 7, 2018
First off, it's sad that there is actually a job posting that says room for growth in the Hingham location. That is 100% not the truth. You come in at entry-level and you're staying there. Over worked, underpaid. You could have the BEST review or the WORST and there is or never will be raises. If you bring up this topic you'll get the response "if you don't like it, leave" Your manager will actually sit in your review tell you how great of an employee you are but keep on encouraging you to go look for a new job. Pretty sad that they don't even fight to keep their best employees. Management will also actually reprimand employees on the floor for others to hear. Alot of petty behavior as well
The ONLY good thing in this location is flexible schedule, but that won't pay the bills!

if you want to keep your sanity..keep scrolling!

The company is a new company that was formed from a split merger from a prior employer. I do essentially the same type of work as I did at the previous employer

Great Career Starter Company
Project Engineer (Current Employee) –  Chantilly, VASeptember 4, 2018
Very relaxed working environment. Depending on the contract you are working, the managers can be good to great. Lots of talk, not to much action. Managers love to solicit feedback, and don't act on it.
Pros
Great foot in the door to the IC
Cons
Benefits, compensation

Newly formed company after merging 3 organizations allowing for multiple growth opportunities. There are some initial growing pains associated with culture change and establishing 1 employer identity however the future looks very bright.

lackluster
IT Specialist (Former Employee) –  Norfolk, VAAugust 16, 2018
Everytime a new company is formed either salaries, benefits or both are slashed. Employees have worked under the following companies: EDS, HP, HPE, DXC, Perspecta. 10 years without a raise, either I was not a very good employee or there is a lack of concern by management for it's employees. Kept hearing how great of a job I was doing but that this year only x% got raises and you were 1/2 of a percent out of the top 5, so sorry.
Pros
it's an enjoyable job
Cons
there isn't a lot of career advancement opportunities, pay and benefits are terrible

Background Investigator
Background Investigator (Current Employee) –  Anywhere, USJuly 29, 2018
As an Investigator, be prepared to work a LOT. Case assignments are heavy but achievable, if you work hard and smart. Case loads are assigned above your level to allow for advancement and/or evaporation.

You work out of your home but travel (mostly local) a great deal, conducting interviews, gathering records, etc. To complete cases. This is definately a job with a lot of work to do. As long as you are willing to work, you should really enjoy this job.
Pros
Set your own schedule; support network
Cons
Heavy workload
