- Academi (Moyock, NC / United States)24.Nov 2015
Company culture somewhat still exists from Balsckwater days where everyone looked out for each other and helped get the job done but with merging with Triple Canopy that mentality is being squelched.
Support from management
Too much churn at executive level so no goals could ever be met!
Good people working hard to hit a moving target.
Freedom to work independently
Those who did the most were expected to carry the load. Worked lots of holidays with NO comp time, no raises or bonuses most years.
The absolute worst I have ever experienced. Corporate in Reston does not acknowledge Moyock nor do they convey appreciation for hard work and long hours. Always a negative message.. Never good.
Not much room for growth as a minority.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Fairly neutral. I did not witness any discrimination.
Zilch. Do not plan on this company being a place to further your career. It has too many internal problems with lots of turnover in executive staff, changing goals every year so you ever get the chance to perform well.
Overall compensation for your work
I thought my compensation was fair until I had to work all the weekends, holidays, long nights etc without any imp time. They ended up getting my expertise at a cheap rate. I worked 120+ hours per 80 hour pay period consistently. They don't tell you that upfront.
Office / Work Environment
Very nice facility but most ranges are outdated and need upgrading to stay up with competition.
Company afraid of a Blackwater repeat.
Again, worst I experienced in twenty years. Worked all hours day, night, holidays, weekends and got not as much as a thank you or time off to rest. They will burn you out and their high turnover rate supports this. Nobody worth anything stays too long.
They have a poor record of paying their bills on time and borrow from bank to make payroll. They are in ad financial shape with all the changes in executive staff that had no clue what they were doing. They were hired because they were in the military with one of the owners.
They have been laying off people all year. Company is about to go under.
No ramps anywhere on property. Main building does have an elevator.
They try to but recently had a firearm go off and shot a person in the arm.
Some work is challenging while the rest is day to day same thing.
Inclusive / Diverse
Most management levels held by white males. Diversity is not a theme in that company!
Suggestions for improvement
- Don't put all your faith in the new strategy team. Too many good people were laid off. A lot of experience left the company which is a recipe for more failures.
What I like about the company
The facility is in a lovely area.
What I dislike about the company
It is too far off the beaten path and there is no room for career growth.
