Pros

PTO is among the best in industry, 401k matching is superior, health care his great

Cons

This company is a "body shop" so to speak. Highly motivated individuals seeking a challenge would probably be better served and valued with another company. I think salary is approximately 20% below market. Many people I have spoken with have had the impression they were going to do something other that what they are actually doing, but this happens at many companies. Simply put, management only cares about you as a person upon initial hire, after that you are a dollar sign or a number to them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate with employees in a fashion other than the quarterly financial briefings.

    They talk a lot about opportunities, but it's hard to figure out how to get any of them

    Intel background hinders communication

    I worked at KEYW full-time (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.
