    I have been working at KEYW full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    * HR is fantastic - I haven't had a single problem they haven't solved in a couple days or less - tuition reimbursement, 401k allocation, stock purchasing adjustment, etc.
    * Great benefits - 401k matching is nearly unmatched (ha!) and they offer a Roth 401k, vesting is almost always immediate (stock options generally carry a 4-year vesting schedule), healthcare is great (Blue Cross) and they offer and HSA option, dental is super inexpensive and widely accepted, AD&D and other benefits included.
    * Pay is great - definitely some of the highest in the local area for a company this size.
    * Lots of different work to do - if you're bored/unhappy, you can switch contracts!
    * Awesome holiday parties (last one was at M&T Bank Stadium)!
    * Great charitable giving opportunities, sometimes even including free company-provided cash to donate to a charity of your choice.
    * Responsive management - any questions I've had have been answered promptly and professionally.

    Cons

    * If you select the hourly rate structure, you have no leave, which is a bit of a pain sometimes, but depending on your lifestyle it's workable. You can switch to salaried if you like (open season once a year).
    * Most of the time you're direct labor, so you have to give the customer what they want (obviously).
    * I've been sitting here 5 minutes on this bullet, and I can't think of any other ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As far as I can tell, upper management is doing great. I don't know why there wasn't a Bagel Breakfast for quite a while (probably the move to Milestone), but I like those so keep them going.

    I have been working at KEYW full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've been able to find the work that most interests me here. I find their healthcare, vacation, and retirement to be way above par for the industry. I like that they will help me find new work when I'm looking for a change.

    Cons

    Lots of moving pieces right now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More events for the employees that work on customer sites. Tough to get to the corporate office sometimes.
