    Pros

    Argon has some very interesting work and a group of very talented engineers - as well as some really nice people. This was a wonderful and innovative place to work before the company went public and the founders left. The acquisition by Boeing has not helped the atmosphere, but it's probably kept the doors open. In the Fairfax location, most offices have windows. But depending on your job, you may spend most of your time in a windowless lab. Nearby there are many options for lunch or run errands. But like most of Northern Virginia, the traffic is difficult.

    Cons

    Argon is struggling. They're having difficulty maintaining their current size - there have been quite a few layoffs recently. I'm not sure if the problem is the economy, the defense budget cuts, local management or Boeing corporate management, but I see other companies doing much better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I recommend that management focusing more on new product development and updating their software tools sets and methodologies. They seem to be coasting off the work from the early 2000s. Furthermore, they need to invest more in R&D and in expanding their customer base. I understand that integration jobs have higher margins, but today's fielded system becomes tomorrows relic. You need to keep your technology pipeline full.
