SwRI has good to excellent benefits, including health care and retirement account contributions. They pay a reasonably good salary, though certainly not on the high end. I experienced no draconian overtime requirements during my time there.
The group I was with was not open to exploring new technologies, even when they may have been more appropriate for the job. Also, they require a 5 year vesting period for retirement contributions they make, which is the case even if they decide to terminate your employment.
Advice to Management
I was generally happy with management.
