"I've been with PotomacWave for almost 3 years and I've loved every second of it! I've watched it grow from a small company into what it is today, and wow! There is such a variety of contracts which gives you flexibility to choose a career path you are really interested in. This has helped me develop many skills to add to my portfolio. Also, upper leadership has always been accessible and very easy to talk to."

"I started at PotomacWave in February 2015, I really love the opportunities for upward progression to grow within the company and how invested management is in you professionally and personally! Also, PotomacWave’s work culture is nothing like I have ever experienced before! One of my proudest moments at PotomacWave is when our team received recognition from our client for our contribution in reducing the material misstatement risk for the Coast Guard’s year-end 2017 CIP accrual."

"This is my second summer interning for the proposals team at headquarters and I’m glad to be back. Every member of the headquarters staff is remarkably friendly, positive, and willing to take the time to explain unfamiliar concepts. My time at PotomacWave has been exceptionally informative as I am frequently trusted with new challenges and given the opportunity to ask questions. Despite my lack of experience, the team is always willing to treat me like an equal and consider what insight I may be able to offer."
