Suggestions for improvement

  • Choose partner-subcontractors more carefully. Avoid prime contractor relationships with companies that have a different corporate ethos.

What I like about the company

Company leaders try hard to live the company’s statement of values. Integrity expected and enforced.

What I dislike about the company

System IT support can improve with standardized training. Some help desk agents should not be the face to the customer.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The culture, and environment is very optimal for the majority of employees. I would provide facility time for days the building is closed, and provide reimbursement for commuting, and parking fees.

What I like about the company

The company took a chance on me based on my military experience. KGS is always looking to win contract with several government agencies and have many positions available in my current location. The company like to promote within so growth opportunities are always available to their employees. Pay is negotiable and competitive for all positions. Working hours are flexible so that I'm able to take care of personal issues when the time arises.

What I dislike about the company

KGS goes off of the government's schedule. If the government is closed, we're forced to take PTO. They should offer facility time so that we don't have to use leave. The medical benefits are really pricey compared to other companies. They don't offer reimbursement for the fee incurred from the commute to work, which I think they should.
