    I enjoyed a long and fulfilling career at Mercury, constantly being challenged and supported.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere is always support for ideas which are in line with the mission as the company strives to make a difference in a challenging environment.

    ConsIt is a high pressure environment that does not lend to shutting down at 5 pm. If that is what you're looking for, this may not be the company for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate more productively across business units and with their own teams.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Top notch in most of the fields they are involved in, great place to work, but challenged by changes in defense market.

    Principal Software Engineer (Former Employee) Chelmsford, MA

    ProsGreat people to work with, supportive environment. Good variety of technically challenging problems to work on, often using cutting edge technology.

    ConsCurrently in a down period due to delays and cutbacks in government spending. Remains to be seen if they will make the right changes to weather the storm and return to growth. Organization of engineering departments is outmoded and must be refocused for success in winning new business.

    MCS is characterized by good products, great technology, and a collaborative envirionment which I liked.

    Manager (Current Employee) Marlborough, MA

    Pros+good technical staff, if a little over worked.
    +competitive salaries and benefits
    +strong CEO
    +company may be poised for solid growth
    + strong work ethic of most associates

    Cons- some inconsistency in senior management ranks
    - workload levelling is not a core skill
    -

    Advice to Senior ManagementFIgure out how to sell services that can be delivered. Build a strong BD staff with in-depth knowledge of MCS core strength and how to leverage it w/o being body shop to the primes. Take a close look at that period in MCS past when you had great subject matter expertise (like Einstein, Green, Rudin, etc) and see if the ROI was really as dramatic as some folks thought it was.
