Great company Great management Great coworkers Not so good pay.If you’re looking to build skill and knowledge this is the place to be. If you’re looking for competitive pay look elsewhere.

Time Off

Great place to work, however it's very hard to get a raise. They'll give you plenty of time off, but it's like pulling teeth to get a raise. If you're set to retire and want to relax the last for years this place is for you.

Can’t advance

No room for advancement. Job is a dead end and very unorganized. Pay is fair, they don’t micromanage, and you have some flexible WFH options as well.

No middle-man support in Company

I think it would have been a lot better of an experience if we had overall support from management. We were left with local bosses who treated us like we were more in the way than part of the team and when they reported unsatisfactory product from us to our Telos management, there was no inspection or investigation. We were just let go.

Great Contracting Company

As far as contracting companies go, this is a pretty good one. They care about your well-being and listen when you have a problem. They were up front about the actual work I'd be doing under the title I was given, so that is always appreciated. I don't have any complaints about Telos, they provide great resources for their employees.


Employee discounts, training and education reimbursement


can't think of any

Smaller Company/Great Place to Work

In my experience working for Telos I have virtually no complaints. Telos is a smaller company, which in my option is a good thing, that has the budget to pay their employees very competitively. While still having the framework of a larger company. (i.e. great benefits, etc.) Hours are easy going and flexible. PTO is generous and management is willing to work with you on any issues. You feel involved in the company since it is on the smaller size. There are several individuals who have worked for Telos for 20+ years. That says something. Highly recommend working for Telos. Health care is a tad bit expensive for a family.

Work hard and make proper use of your downtime.

Workplace is very relaxed when it's not busy, which means that you should take advantage of that time to learn what you need to improve your skills. Training is as easy as asking your teammate or team leader. Team leaders even ask if you want to take part in documenting training if it's new, which makes you feel like you contribute to the team. Work schedule is also very good and they try really hard to ensure it works well with your personal schedule, especially if you're in school. Thinking about what the team needs and if they trust in you to fill that need, that makes you valued and valuable.


Relaxed work environment, solid teamwork, flexible schedule, feel valued for work contributions, management easy to talk to.


most benefits not available to part-timers

I must admit, I thought it was a scam...

When I was initially contacted by Telos I thought it was a scam, however once I took the chance and went in for an interview that all changed. Everyone there wants to see you succeed and advance and will assist you along the way. We are like a big family that enjoys having fun as we work.


When were in the office, there are lots of activities to relax

Working here is pretty good

As an individual who works on a military base for the company I am assigned to a comm unit and pretty much take my day to day tasks from them. This can mean some days I am rather busy while others just studying for certs. It is nice however that even though I am away from a Telos office building that I still have access to the company network either by my smart phone of PC. Telos makes great use of current mobile technology since not everyone works at a local office.I will say a downside is that when I started at the customer site I was given very little direction and had to kind of piece it together. I was not in contact with any other Telos personnel at the site till the day before I started and was not introduced to the shop I was to be working with till I was supposed to start work. Thankfully since then it has been pretty easy and the job is rather laid back but still busy at times. Overall a great place to work.


Flexible work hours on customer sites


Very little direction when starting at a customer site.

If you are in the information technology or cyber security field, this would be the place to be. You definitely want to make sure you have your certifications or bachelor's degree to advance yourself.

This was a contract position dealing with a Federal Government Client. The contract was dual between another contract prime. Upon contract rebid the incumbent contract pulled me on to their team.

Good Company

I am just going to say that Telos is a good company to work for. The people are nice and if it were up to me, I'd stay longer. Sometimes things happen with contract jobs that are outside the companies control.

Field management was under trained in dealing with personnel in the field. Lacked interpersonal skills company accommodations in field was second to none.
