car3Easier Work Life Balance

At Enlighten we know that a healthy work life balance reduces employee stress and increases employee motivation, so we’ve developed a number of ways to make your life easier.

The majority of our work is conducted at our corporate office in Linthicum Heights, MD as well as our customer spaces in Annapolis Junction, MD. To support the challenges that life sometimes throws our way, we offer flexible schedules and telecommuting options. We also use a variety of technologies, like Google Hangouts, to make sure employees are connected when and in the way they need to be. And because we know that rest and relaxation are vital, we offer generous PTO and holiday benefits.

In the office, we encourage you to periodically step away from your screen and take a mental break. You can enjoy our lounge area (with giant TVs, comfy couches, and even some long-distance putting) or our kitchen lounge (stocked with free snacks and drinks).

A Collaborative, Collegial Culturecar4

Most important to us is the fostering of a company culture that is both collaborative and collegial. We know that a collaborative environment
will take our employees and our company to the next level. Work on our prime contracts allows many of our employees to work next to each other day in and day out.  We emphasize teamwork and the interplay between individuals that result in cutting-edge comprehensive solutions.

We value innovation. Periodically we hold an “Evening of Ideas” where employees can propose projects for further development and company funding. Our Rapid Analytic Deployment and Management Framework (RADMF) (learn more here) was brought to life as the result of one of these evenings.
