    Tough, but worth it.

    Marketing Advisor (Current Employee) Fairfax, VA

    ProsIf you are willing to work hard and smart, you will be rewarded. The culture is tough, but manageable if you are a driven and self-starting employee. You also have the opportunity to be placed in challenging assignments across many lines of business and areas expertise without changing companies.

    ConsRanking system is often portrayed as a negative; however, I would prefer the controlled and measured ranking system to having 1 person determine my promotions and career path. Relocation opportunities are often presented with little notice or flexibility.

    Good pay and Benefits

    Systems Analyst (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGreat pay, great benefits, promote from within

    ConsNo bonuses, if you're not an engineer company treats you like a 2nd class citizen, no 9/80 schedule, individual ranking system does not induce teamwork, quality of job satisfaction dependent on who your supervisor is

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros- Competitive salary and benefits
     - High-level of responsibility early in career
     - Good opportunities to develop
    I've enjoyed working there and I've had the opportunity to work with great people

    Good working environment

    Research Engineer (Former Employee) Texas, GA

    ProsPeople were nice and the environment was friendly to new grads. The management structure is not as well design as other companies, but we still get our work done.

    ConsThe company is less focused on the care of the environment and the care of its employees. Pay was okay, but could have been more.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    OK place to start your career, but without high ranking, you quickly become dissatisfied

    Advanced Engineer (Current Employee) Baytown, TX

    ProsStability in work environment. Ability to travel to some nice places. Typically the people you are working around are really smart and easy to get along with.

    ConsFlexibility with work schedule. Work life balance is promoted until it comes to ranking time, then it is used against you. Advancement opportunities for all but the top rated folks are hard to come by. Typically use technical folks to do all mundane tasks such as organize a file room. Salary always seems to lag competetors

    Advice to Senior ManagementHow employees are ranked is not always reflective of work performed, highly skilled technical people are also an asset and should be compensated to reflect that.
