    I worked at KEYW full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The entire company is inovative, agile, and has a good work - play mix. There is even a "Chief Fun Officer" selected every year.

    Cons

    There's a huge lack of communication, not just virtical in the organization, but even horizontal. The company grew up in the Intel community, and their internal culture shows their background. Unfortunately, it causes a lot of problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to communicate more with the staff and with peers.

    I have been working at KEYW full-time

    Pros

    KEYW has some of the best benefits available in the contracting arena: Generous PTO, Tuition and Training, ESPP and a 10% 401k match. They have lots of company functions, such as BBQs, quarterly all hands meetings and parties.

    Cons

    KEYW has too many managers. The opportunities they have while diverse are mostly subcontracting opportunities. They do not have enough prime contracting vehicles. Would like a medical stipend for not participating in medical insurance. Currently participate in military benefits, but the company provides no advantages to this.
