Overall bad experience
IT Technician (Former Employee) –  Fort Bliss, TXJuly 11, 2019
Bad communication between management and local team members. Lack of advancement and rude team members, even those trying to leave for better jobs after years of dedication are not offered more money to have them stay.

Only insiders move up
Akima Team (Former Employee) –  Herndon, VAJune 22, 2019
Akima isn't necessarily a meritocracy. Friends of those in charge move up while other and/or competent people are stuck at the same level. There are some good people but a lot of turnover.

This job is for the birds!
Fort Carson Shuttle Driver (Former Employee) –  Fort Carson, COMay 4, 2019
Management is incompetent and over worked. Employees do whatever they want while your told to mind your business. They continue to hire individuals that pose a hazard and affects the efficiency of the job. No growth and no raise. Miserable people in a miserable environment.
Pros
Easy job
Cons
Management, incompetent employees.

easy job
Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Homestead, FLMay 1, 2019
This is a very easy job only problem is they do not allow you to sit down during an 8 hour shift and give you only two 10 minute breaks. Then after working a 16 hour shift you only get a 30 minute break. This place is very unorganized and unprofessional. Every check im missing hours or the pay me 1 pay per with 3 separate checks instead of giving me 1 whole check. Theres people that were hired months ago given access to the facility but has yet to be placed on schedule.
Pros
great pay for easy job
Cons
unprofessional and unorganized

Stay away beware horrible place to work
Detention Officer (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLApril 18, 2019
Horrible place to work Management and Shift Supervisor is the most incompetent and unprofessional people i have ever seen being employed at any company. There are alot of bullying, harassment, disrespect towards Offficers. I have seen people break down and cry they use the fact that you make descent money and hold it against you by going after your job. Racism really do happen at Krome Detention Center working on the camp is like Slavery. They need to be investigated. I just might bring media attention to these matters.

Thankless
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCApril 18, 2019
The day starts before your work hours begin. Managers use employees for their dedication and hard work ethic. Most work goes unrewarded. There is a hard and fast pecking order. Employees are promoted into positions for which they are ill suited, and then rewarded based on the enforcement of rules that make little to no sense. Very little regard given to managers who know how to do it and limited training opportunities provided. If you work in the shared services of Akima, be aware that you will be expected to work in servitude with very little voice and option for promotion from within. Buyer beware. Unless you are hired into a senior director or executive role, you are treated poorly with little rewards for hard work and dedicated service.

Atmosphere here is horrible
Clerk II (Current Employee) –  Fort Gordon, GAApril 17, 2019
Management is horrible, the work morale is so low that no one wants to be at work only here for the decent pay rate. Management and the company overall could care less about the employees and they are allowed to talk to employees any kind of way and HR does nothing to correct the issue. There are a lot of things swept under the rug by HR and not reported to corporate.

Warehouse staff at landover
Logistics Technician (Former Employee) –  Landover, MDMarch 22, 2019
Don’t apply here and this just applyies for landover. First off the benefits suck I’m single with no kids paying almost $400 for health insurance and a 40% coin insurance. Imagine if you have a family. One guy was paying $600 every two weeks and akima will only cover $660 ($4.25 HW PAY) of it. You can find better coverage for less but akima won’t let you roll your H&W pay into your base pay. Second thing is if they can screw you over they will. They never gave a pay raise to anyone that’s been there for awhile and will tell you that they can’t afford to give anyone a pay raise but bring in new hires and start them off at 65k-70k with no expierence. Or they will undercut you. This one young kid 22 years of age didn’t know better to negotiate relived this one guy who started off at 52K but paid the kid 40K for the same job which was messed up. Third thing is the work over there is nonstop they will work the dog out of you which doesn’t add up to what your getting paid even the new hires getting 65k-70k are through with that job. If you do apply please ask for that money cause they have enough to pay people a lot of money. They are hurting to hire people so believe me ask.
Pros
Potential to become an federal employee
Cons

Poor leadership skills among mid-level managers and extremely underfunded for infrastructure supports
Administrative Support (Former Employee) –  Fairfax, VAMarch 17, 2019
Company growing at a very rapid rate. Take care of their executives in terms of compensation, some of whom are very nice but the ones that effect org culture are a nightmare. Company culture is extremely oppressive for those who are not in management; the internal shared services (infrastructure) is stressed like a rubberband beyond capacity. Very limited opportunities to grow within the company and line level employees are treated very badly. The HR Department is completely siloed and ineffective at recruitment activities in particular. Company does not recognize the resources it has from within to promote. I learned that in order to grow professionally, one must leave the company. Very nice people who share similar experiences. Overall, mid level managers are amatuers and company needs leadership training to reform current oppressive culture.
Pros
Benefits, free coffee, nice gathering for breakfasts on Friday mornings
Cons
Too many to mention

Management needs a lot of work
General Clerk III (Current Employee) –  Fort Carson, COMarch 14, 2019
This is a great company to work for with great opportunity to advance. There are great benefits and after a year you get a week paid vacation. Sadly at the CIF I was faced with some poor management that has made the experience much less grand for me.

Only a temporary job
Role Player (Former Employee) –  Fort McCoy, WI 54656February 14, 2019
This job was a temporary job for the US government. It involved role playing to train the troops for deployment to Iraq. You never knew what part of the base you were going to be at. A good experience but not a career position.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Never sure if you were going to work when you showed up

Clock watchers
Warehouse Specialist (Current Employee) –  Andrews AFB, MDFebruary 12, 2019
Management watches your time in and out like a hawk. They are quick to make you take leave for running late even if for 10-15 minutes but are very stingy with overtime.

Payroll Clerk
Payroll Clerk (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCFebruary 2, 2019
Management expects perfection and that is fine except when hovering over and picking apart your every piece of work, it can actually cause errors. No training on the way they want it done, so you feel stranded on an island, alone. And last but not least, there are favorites and there is definitely a favorite race.
Pros
Great pay, free dinner once a week on late night (mandatory until work is complete). 9-10pm
Cons
Management and turnover

Worst place to work
Detention Officer (Former Employee) –  MiamiJanuary 15, 2019
WORST PLACE TO WORK. Good pay but no Job Security. They have you work for 6 months then end up laying you off out of no where and for stupid things. This job is so easy but the people and worth environment is the worst. Very unprofessional and dirty! Only good thing about it is the pay it starts off at $25 and it goes up. Just be ready to deal with a lot of bs and prepared to get fired or laid off about anything,
Pros
Pay
Cons
Everything else
