Pros

This company is built on a solid business model and had a good future ahead of it. The entry level positions in all departments require long hours and difficult work which is perennially under-appreciated. However, those with the patience and diligence to stick it out will see themselves pleasantly rewarded.

The work is generally exciting and long term prognosis for all is positive provided you work hard.

Cons

The senior management team is in somewhat of a transition time frame, and communication is lacking regarding the company's future plans. However, upper management is very capable and has the best interests of the company at heart.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cut unnecessary employees, develop and enforce long term internal growth plans and communicate them to the lower-level workforce - provide incentives for those who work hard and provide results

    Pros

    Career advancement is very fast. You can assume more responsibilities faster than your peers at other companies or industries

    Cons

    When you are at the ground level, you have to work tirelessly until you are advanced to a better position before things start seeming clearer from a company standpoint.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More and more encouragement to ground level staff. because all they do is take a leap of faith, and sometimes feel in the dark as to company's future or even theirs. Continuous encouragement and incentives given the fact that their pay scale is so low.

    I have been working at FedBid

    Pros

    FedBid offers it's employee's good benefits and the chance to move up quickly to positions that may give a boost to an entry level resume.

    Cons

    The pay is extremely sub-par for the DC metro area. You will quickly find out that although you may be promoted quickly and given increased responsibility, your pay will not reflect this. You will not be able to take any time off in the busy season (July-Sept). Nepotism runs rampant within this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase compensation drastically.
