    Pros

    Good people in Non-Management position where team work is essential. Company flex hours are great. Benefits are good but falling behind other companies.

    Cons

    Senior Management can care less about laying off people. Job security is non-existent as one never knows when one will be let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acquiring companies and give raises, plus stop saying you are lucky to have a job!

    I have been working at Mercury Systems (Massachusetts) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a job. Even with a possibility of using debt, it pushes to use cash resources

    Cons

    With the recent acquisitions and corresponding layoffs, Mercury has sunk from a positive company where the $'s came in easily, to breaking policy to chase $'s. The management direction is haphazard - nothing clear since the acquisitions and layoffs. The attitude is depressing at HQ. They are blaming it on the continuing resolution

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the current problems. THE BOD should re-evaluate the current management. Maybe they were great with a smaller company and has bitten off more than they can chew.

    I worked at Mercury Systems (Massachusetts) (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people I worked with were incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and interesting.

    Cons

    The upper management is terrible. In their strive to be cost-effective, they have laid off or driven away a good deal of talent. Constant pay and hiring freezes keep what talent is left overworked and underpaid. All engineers are spread far too thin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better. Stop focusing on making the company worth more on paper and actually develop a deeper talent pool.

    I have been working at Mercury Systems (Massachusetts)

    Pros

    Mercury had a technology leadership in the embedded computer space. Their leading switch fabric architecture made anyone who needed a super computer in a shoe box come to Mercury.

    Cons

    The leadership mentality between the executive and senior staff was much like throwing meat on the floor and watching the resulting melee. The senior staff acknowledged the onslaught of commoditization, but refused to change course to adapt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a new management team in place as a result of the above comment. So far profitability is being made via personnel cuts, not innovation.
