Are you sure? The job posting came from a seperate head hunter company.

IF they were, then why would they have offices all over?

My friend worked at Mantech for about a year, he is a mech engr. Left cause his ex military boss was an ass and tried to cover up a big fak up. If they hadnt lied to him about promotion oportunities and his boss wasnt a dick he said he would have stayed.

His dad puts together proposals on large govt contract vehicles for Mantech, and makes bank, lots of bank. But Ive seen him come home at 4AM and then leave again at 7AM, on a Saturday.

Yea, they promised if he had favorable reviews at the 6mo and 1 yr marks that he would get raises at each. He got great reviews, but was told his raises were not in the budget.

He worked off of 50 in Chantilly.

Funny, we sub out to 10-12 Mantech people. The Sr Manager here forwarded me that same listing earlier. I'd be all over it...but too far to drive for me.

Mantech has a pretty sizable office here. Seem to be a good company. They bought lots of smaller companies. Greyhawk was the one that was purchased locally.

Mantech is not a head hunter compnay. They have several contracts at DHS to include IT support.

Alex, I worked for them for about 3.5 years doing security work for State.

overall, I liked working for them, but I was in the security technology section which was much smaller, and very separate from the rest of Mantech, so I never really had to interact much with corporate. I do know that IT is Mantech's bread and butter, and they are very good at it, very organized.

my main problem is that they have lost a bunch of big contracts lately, including the one I was working on, that's why I jumped over to govt. side. I don't think they are very good at bidding on new contracts and recompetes, from what I saw, they pushed a lot of the bidding work to pretty far down the ladder, people why could not possibly be expected to do a good job at it, and then thye wonder why they lost out.

Overall, they are a fine company to work for, they treat employees well, their pay is usally good (although you gotta fight for good raises), so are the benefits. The only problem I'd have is job security. Do not expect to have a job after the contract expires because they have a good chance of losing it, and they are not good at reassigning people. Mantech is the reason I gave up on contractor work for more stable govt. work.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
