Inter con is a great company if your seeking your security Clearance. You must be a college grad or prior Military. The hours suck, you are micromanaged by everyone and may come in to work 4 hours but could be held for 12.

Pros and Cons
TS/SCI if you stay the course
Work life balance, hours Micromanaged

Petty about the most minute thing. Lack of professionalism . The company do not care for their employees. They are all about body on ground and do not care about what you are going through in your life or family. You get penalized calling off even when you have sick leave. The pay isnt bad, but in life, everything is not only centered on money. The company tend to easily let the older employee go easily on petty things because they make more money bringing in the new hires. The only reason they employ new hires round the clock, literally.

Pros and Cons
Not a bad pay
No parking, hostile environment, get easier fired, bad quality of life, schedule sucks!

Was a good start to my professional management career. Helped me develop skills to manage hundreds of people in multiple locations. Job was 24/7. no life outside of work. Salary was not any where close enough for the hours demanded of you.

Pros and Cons
professional dress. got to travel. worked with some great people
ridiculous hours. poor pay. contract work.
