Anyone heard if they are functioning. Is anyone in HR? A glimmer of hope and then the silence began.

Yes, they are functioning. I received a letter of intent from them and am waiting for my security clearance to be completed - I've also had regular contact with them for about the past month and a half/two months.

Given that you strongly advise against signing on with this employer, I suggest you post your reasons instead of inviting every Tom, Dick, and Harry to PM you.

Also good idea because newbies to Dave's with fewer than 6 posts can't use the pm function Shocked

Optimistic, the way I found out that my security clearance was completed was by receiving an e-mail with the financial aspects of my offer and a request for me to provide them with the date that I could join them. In response I asked if this meant that the security clearance was complete and they said it was.
