It's a great place to work, but be prepared to forge your own path

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Herndon, VA

ProsGood projects, good people, and management that cares about the employees, the new corporate emphasis on its core set of values is an interesting effort to focus on what the company believes, the work/life balance is very good -- family comes first and management is very supportive of your focus on the family.

ConsIt's not as flexible as a small company, there's a lot of pressure to conform to Six Sigma, there's not a lot of reinforcement for people just doing their jobs -- you only see kudos going to people who really go above and beyond.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more feedback regularly, say thanks for everything -- even when someone is just doing their job up to expectations

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
