    I have been working at Assured Information Security full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits & pay. Smart & talented engineers, they are some of the most talented engineers and support people around. They really are what makes this place great.

    Recently the company reduced and streamlined the management team at all levels. Communication from the top has gotten a lot better and some of the bureaucracy has gone away.

    Cons

    Because it's a small company, if things get slow, you may be working on something boring or unrelated to your field for a while.

    Some of the program managers could use leadership training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer some basic training and instruction to new hires. Consider developing a career path that creates opportunity for advancement.

    I worked at Assured Information Security full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are great! Health insurance, short term and long term disability. 7% contribution to 401k without requiring match. $500.00 annual expense account for work related hardware, software, books, etc.

    A lot of great engineers working cool projects.

    Good salaries!

    Cons

    Customers are very demanding and can cause chaos. The company is a government contractor and sometimes you can not share what you are working on with friends and families.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication to the employees from all levels of management.

    Mid-level managers in particular need to communicate more. They seem scared to share bad news.

    Need more University relationships. More collaboration among the basic research teams.
