    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Annapolis Junction, MD

    I have been working at Proteus Technologies full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The company employs some of the smartest people in the industry.
    The pay and benefits are generally very good.
    Most of the work is very interesting and important.
    The senior executives are generally very approachable and do what they can to look out for employees.
    Hours worked per week are generally restricted by contract, so excessive hours are extraordinary rare.
    Hours are flexible.

    Cons

    It is a relatively small company that is almost exclusively involved in government contracting, so billable hours are paramount. If the government closes (due to weather, the ineptitude of Congress, etc.), expect to have it counted against your vacation time (or, if you've run out of that, leave without pay).
    Although the company touts its professional development benefits, it is sometimes difficult/impossible to get approval to go to conferences, especially in times of government uncertainty.
    Be ready to get yanked around between contracts on the whims of the business development staff, with little say other than the general type of work you'll be doing.
    Most work takes place at government facilities or facilities owned by other contractors, so you may have only limited contract with fellow employees.
    Many contracts involve maintaining obsolete and poorly designed software unopened by other contractors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A more serious effort toward promoting development of skills (rather than just pursuing things that look good on a resume attached to a contract proposal) should be made. This could be coupled with an effort to promote new technologies among customer.
    Offloading all risk associated with work site closures onto employees may keep overhead costs down, but it severely impacts morale.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Proteus Technologies in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter who arranged everything at each stage. A brief phone screening takes place followed by a "programming challenge" (write a program to provided specs), then finally a phone interview with 3 or 4 people. The interview consists of resume-based questions, general knowledge questions, and some "brain-teaser" type questions (write a program in your head, solve this odd problem, etc).

    Interview Questions
    • Imagine there's a whiteboard (over the phone) and write code for a given requirement.   View Answer
    • Do you have a math background? A science background? Etc   View Answer
