Networking Field (Current Employee) – Ashburn, VA – March 21, 2018
Good place to work to get your start in IT, though pay is anywhere from 10-20% lower than the standard. Benefits are good, though 401k matching is super low compared to others in the industry and almost 5 years before fully vested.
Friendly People and Great Work/Life Balance
Salary and Benefits are not competitive enough; raises/bonuses are non-existent
Field Service Technician (Current Employee) – Ashburn, VA – January 5, 2018
My experience with working for the Telos Corporation is very rewarding. I have a better understanding in the Windows 7 to 10 migration that is happening around the world and I feel very confident in carrying out my knowledge upon my future job opportunities.
Jr. Technician Specialist Contractor (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – November 25, 2017
They were honest about the length of the Contract. Work activities were reasonable, and most of the people were nice.
The position I had did not require a clearance, and I would have been interested in a long term position with them but the open position required an existing clearance which I did not have at that time.
Developer (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – September 18, 2017
This company has great remote work, and work/life features. It is great in that respect. However, they do not pay current rates for job roles. They do not give raises or bonuses. They didn't even give us a review.
Management is just awful all around. I don't care what team you are on. Everyone complains that the managers are jerks, inept, and rude. You are always expected to put in at least 50 hour work weeks. My boss wanted the hours added in at all times. They will let you get certs and train but it comes at a cost. You will have no growth or pay increase and be worked overtime for a thankless role.
The culture is good. The CEO is nice. They try to have little events there. There was no enjoyable point of the day to day job. The work was not challenging. The expensive training was never put to use because they do not make any strides to improve the way work is done in the 21st century.
This company is a huge regret. My boss was abusive daily, management was no support, and HR sides with the management to the point that you wish you had a lawyer. The best part of the job was being able to go to an appointment or work remotely when need be. You are supposed to be happy with that and free bottled juices and water. Day to day, I was miserable. Yet it was not worth the time wasted there being underpaid, overworked, and unsupported.
I am not an isolated case. I am not just a former employee that quit out of misery. I am one of out tons of co-workers that I have seen gripe, and quit out of the same, shared misery.
Exchange Administration and Server Administrator (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – June 7, 2017
Really nice place to work, very friendly folks who really care about their employees. Telos has a really nice in-house Christmas party where employees are allowed to take a couple of hours off early to enjoy the season together.
NOC Operator (Former Employee) – Pentagon, DC – June 6, 2017
Good company but out of touch with its employees, and didn't fill promises made. Company did not give raises for years, and expected more production. Teamed up with other bad company to try and win a contract it never should have lost.
Invest in your employees, offer better wages, improve your infrastructure, and most of all stop tolerating bad behavior.
Security Guard (Current Employee) – Ashburn, VA – February 9, 2015
Very laid back dress code; blue jeans and a shirt if you really want to. The CEO is a very nice guy and very understanding. Everyone there is very nice and easy to get along with. They brew Starbucks coffee there for the employees which is pretty nice.
Worked there for 15 years, immpossible to summarize the wealth of knowledge I learned from the many people I worked with.
ASSITANT PROGRAM MANAGER (Former Employee) – Virginia and relocated to Texas in 2008 – January 19, 2015
Great place to work, very supportive leadership and extremely supportive in climbing the corporate ladder. I learned so much from TELOS - started when i was 22 and worked there for almost 15 years so they were like my family and I learned how to deal with all types of rush/slow down and wait situations and then run around like a maniac and get it done! Whatever it took. I worked remotely from home for the last 6 years of my employment without a hitch. I adored my managers as people and as managers and took their constructive criticism and ran with it. The hardest part of my job was working for 5 different program managers and only one me...had to learn to prioritize and diplomatically deal with whom didn't come first.
benefits were amazing, very supportive company
i got laid off!!! Sometimes too many chefs in the kitchen.
prepared reports putting together reports that were needed time management was very key to this job people that I worked with and for were very caring of me and my time fast paced job at times the people that I work with
ITS Engineer - Oracle DBA (Current Employee) – Ashburn, VA – March 23, 2014
During my employment with Telos, I've had the opportunity to learn different Oracle technologies and apply them into my daily routine. I have learned Oracle Streams and Oracle Wallet as well as strengthened my knowledge of Oracle 11g. The management value their employees and gives credit when and where it is due. My co-workers are very knowledgeable and easy to work with. We continue to learn from each other daily. The hardest part of the job is not having the necessary resources to implement Oracle technologies such as Oracle Grid control and Oracle RAC. The most enjoyable part of the job is successfully troubleshooting and resolving given problems.
Field Technician (Former Employee) – Fort Hood, TX – August 9, 2013
