    I was able to work with some great Engineers. They helped me when I needed it and I was able to help them when they needed it. I learned a lot the time I was there. When the times were good, the group I worked in felt like a second family. I ended up developing many long last friendships here.


    Layoffs hurt as that seemed to be the first choice (rather than the last) when it comes to cost cutting. There were years that there were not any raises so it hurt financially when healthcare costs went up and your paycheck did not. Information didn't always flow from upper management to the lower ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Less managers and more Engineers. It would be a good idea to continually hire a certain number of college graduates to keep the pipeline robust.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Mercury Systems (Massachusetts) (Chelmsford, MA).


    They received my resume from a career fair I attended. HR contacted me through email and set up a screening call and from there a phone interview with the hiring manager and then an on site interview which lasted about 4 hours. I met with five people and was asked mostly resume and experience questions and a couple technical questions, but was not asked to write code. Overall, it was an average interview but was a waste of time and could have been avoided. They should have made clear from the beginning what they were looking for in terms of qualifications.
