    Pros

    Very good company to work for. Good location.

    Cons

    I didn't expect to be laid off after almost 14 years with the company but there were layoffs due to decreased government funding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you know a person is going to be laid off, tell them when you find out about it and don't wait until the day you are going to walk him/her out. This would give them a chance to search for a different job instead of being out in the cold. The past Christmas was the worst I ever had because we didn't have any money for gifts and we didn't even have any food.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, challenging work, opportunities for growth. I plan to hopefully return one day. I only left because our division got sold to an investment firm so didn't have a choice. Now I'm with the company called The SI Organization, Inc. which is all about money and does not care one bit about its employees.

    Cons

    Too many levels of management.

    Pros

    Highly mIssion-focused organization, for a great mission -- defending our country.

    The company knows very well that they are an engineering company. So, they look after and appreciate their engineers. Also great with & for veterans.

    Tops in ethics. Excellent culture. Excellent people to work with, and work for.

    Cons

    Starting salaries tend to the low side, salary growth tends to be slow. (Salary process has become fairly transparent.) Training budget always tiny. (Beginning to do more in employee training with innovative approaches.)
