    I worked at KEYW full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The coworkers- I genuinely enjoyed my work associates

    Cons

    Terrible communications
    Company sends out too many promo items... I'd rather have a conversation or paid training luncheon instead of the 'stuff'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trim the fat. Don't wait for the good, talented people to get fed up and leave you.

    I have been working at KEYW full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    PTO is among the best in industry, 401k matching is superior, health care his great

    Cons

    This company is a "body shop" so to speak. Highly motivated individuals seeking a challenge would probably be better served and valued with another company. I think salary is approximately 20% below market. Many people I have spoken with have had the impression they were going to do something other that what they are actually doing, but this happens at many companies. Simply put, management only cares about you as a person upon initial hire, after that you are a dollar sign or a number to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with employees in a fashion other than the quarterly financial briefings.

    They talk a lot about opportunities, but it's hard to figure out how to get any of them

    I have been working at KEYW

    Pros

    Option to telecommute
    Flex time
    Good paid time off

    Cons

    Management makes it very difficult to understand what the heck is going on - constant reshuffling and being dumped under random managers who don't necessarily care about my project
    Difficult to get new opportunities, request for raises / promotions completely ignored
    Underpaid

    Intel background hinders communication

    I worked at KEYW full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The entire company is inovative, agile, and has a good work - play mix. There is even a "Chief Fun Officer" selected every year.

    Cons

    There's a huge lack of communication, not just virtical in the organization, but even horizontal. The company grew up in the Intel community, and their internal culture shows their background. Unfortunately, it causes a lot of problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to communicate more with the staff and with peers.
