    I have been working at Stanley Associates

    Pros

    Great Benefits
    Competitive Pay
    Work/Life Balance

    Management cares about keeping good employees. If you're looking for something different, you'll have the opportunity.

    Cons

    Defense contracting
    Limited Systems Engineering work
    Recent Acquisition leaves culture and benefits in question

    Like most defense contracting jobs, a lot depends on the site you work at, the customer you work for, and the management you deal with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At this point, the management is in flux. Here's hoping that the new company will look at what made employees happy to work for Stanley and make some changes to accomodate the new team members.

    Pros

    Not one to normally believe in idioms, the grass is definitely greener on this side. While you can always find something to complain about, Stanley is one of those companies where you just do not want to leave. Good medical, higher than average pay, team-oriented atmosphere, and flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Middle management gets the job done and this is what has made Stanley so successful. It's the executive management that needs some therapy. Lack of operational vision and growing too fast too short of time has made most of the executive team excess baggage. No clear career tracks leaves every man for themselve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much pride and not enough work ethic. Get over yourself and get your hands dirty from time to time. Need to focus more on operations and less on your legacy.

    I have been working at Stanley Associates

    Pros

    1) The supervisors are wonderful, and they care not only for their employees, but also for their lives outside work. 2) We are given very flexible schedules, and we are even allowed to make up time if we are unable to come to work for any reason. 3) The pay is excellent, and I've received several raises in 1 year of working here. I'd definitely recommend Stanley Associates for anyone looking for a job!

    Cons

    At times, the work can get monotonous, but that is true for just about any job. The only problem (and it's more of an annoyance) I have with Stanley is that some great ideas don't make it past the first or second line supervisors. When most of the employees want something to happen, and the upper management is unaware, then that's not a good way to run a company, but other than that, ther are no problems!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees more chances to talk to you about what they would like to see in the company (benefits, changes, etc.). We are a VAST resource that should not be ignored. And just because some of our supervisors don't like an idea, that doesn't mean that upper management wouldn't like it. Give us an outlet!
