A small company with interesting projects, smart engineers, and tight deadlines

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Rockville, MD

I have been working at Hillcrest Labs

ProsInteresting and different work than is normally found in the DC area. The company has the largest concentration of smart engineers that I've ever worked with. Ego is not an issue, and most people are genuinely nice to be around.

ConsTight deadlines and changing priorities. Management tends to take engineering heroics for granted and pushes some people to burn out.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease don't call Hillcrest Labs a startup any more. There should be some limit to the number of years that you can call yourself a startup. Six years is a long time to take to graduate.
