    Cons

    This is contractor work. While the company will go out of their way to keep you employed or help you find work there is always the risk of being laid off due to the lack of a contract to support your position.

    Advice to Management

    The company portfolio is heavy in Navy support. Opportunities to expand into Air Force and Army support might be valuable.

    I worked at Phoenix Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company is small, under 70 employees, allowing you to know most if not all of the employees and senior corporate staff. They are very flexible to meet the needs of the employees in most instances. Very good 401k.

    Cons

    This small company focuses on government contracting, so when a contract ends, there is virtually no "cover" for the employee to move to another position within the company. They have a no buy back on Personal Time Off (PTO) policy when one leaves the company, for any reason. This makes sense if the company terminates the employee for cause, however, it makes no sense if the employee is terminated for reasons out... of the employee's control.

    Advice to Management

    Take some risk to expand your base. Change the PTO policy to pay the employee at least some of their earned PTO
