This company is very people oriented. With a lot of companies in the area you are treated like another number. The people are friendly and very open to helping you. If they can't help you they will point you in the right direction.
Nothing really stands out as a con with this company. Everything I've heard about this company before I became part of it is what it is.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at G2 Inc. (Annapolis Junction, MD) in August 2015.
I was able to meet two recruiters from G2 during an employer panel, and they expressed initial interest in seeing my resume. After a short day or two, Lee Wanless got in touch with me to schedule an initial phone interview, which was about 45 minutes and covered basic personality, career goals, and background experience questions. At the end of the phone interview I believe it was made clear that they would be interested in an in-person interview. I think it would have been a much quicker turn-around, but due to my schedule it was about 2 weeks that I was finally able to make it in to their offices. G2, Inc. has a great atmosphere and environment and it really put me at ease when I arrived for the interview. Definitely not a "corporate" or "stuffy" feeling from anyone I encountered at all. The spaces are wide open and focused on a central lounge/kitchen area to encourage discussion and teamwork beyond the desks. The interview room is near the very center of this area, nicknamed "The Fishbowl" for the fact it has floor-to-ceiling glass walls that allow everyone walking by to see inside. Be prepared for a "non-traditional" interview for the first hour, and keep an open mind. This portion was also with Lee Wanless, and was centered mostly on "critical thinking", although indirectly I think they are looking at communication skills and composure as well. Lee gave me a scenario and guidelines to draw on the large whiteboard wall, and diagram several security-related problems. It's a free-flow exercise and I don't think they are looking for a right/wrong answer. Several times during this portion, another engineer or coworker might step in (the door to the room remains open) to observe, ask a question, or simply say hello. It didn't feel uncomfortable to me, and I think they are interested to see how you can handle multitasking and stress in the "hot-seat" so to speak. The next portion was more traditional across the table with 1 or 2 technical experts . It was a comfortable discussion and they went into detail on some of my resume experience to see what I had done and if I was familiar with x/y/z. There were no rapid-fire questions, but a steady back-and-forth with everyone involving certain right/wrong answers. Near the end, they had a handful of data sheets and readouts they asked me to discuss and tell them what I knew or could infer from each one. The final portion of the interview was with Tom Shelly, the Manager for Mission Engineering, who discussed more of the "strategic vision" of G2 and where the company fits into the picture, as well as where it has come from. There were no right/wrong answers, but more of a chance for you to share your goals and philosophy and how they might align with the company. Everything about the process was extremely positive, and left me with a "gut-feeling" that everyone hopes to find when they're looking for the right place to work. Everyone I encountered showed an unbelievable level of sincerity and honesty that lets you know you are not just a number or body they are trying to fill. Specifically, Lee Wanless made every effort from the beginning, even before seeing my resume, to let me know I can turn to him for help or advice, whether or not an opportunity was present at G2, Inc. That is not something I've genuinely encountered at all from any recruiter other than here, and it goes far when determining what kind of people you're actually surrounding yourself with.
