Good luck to all of those BI’s being laid off and looking for work. There is one
new opening at one of the 3 large contract companies. I recently resigned my
position. I was part of the largest class that they had ever trained in June. It consisted of BI’s and a few Reviewers. For a company that has been doing this a long time there was nothing about their training or process that was impressive or even logical. Half of the class did not have access to the programs necessary to do the job and therefore we learned everything via PowerPoint and nothing hands-on. The lack of access was just poor planning and execution.
They had assigned most of our cases before we had even arrived for training and the clock was ticking. In one breath they would say that we were not liable for our “stats” until we had been on our own for 6 months and the next day slam us for not meeting deadlines. They demanded OT for people that barely knew what they were doing. The added pressure was unnecessary and when I called them on it they backed down and admitted the truth. I just got tired of being lied to by people that had no idea how to manage people.
Their contract is about to expire and they are very concerned about the re-compete. Given what I observed, they should be concerned, but I’m sure they have enough clout with DoD to continue on no matter how poorly they perform. Investigations is only 10% of their current business.
