I worked at KEYW full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The coworkers- I genuinely enjoyed my work associates

Cons

Terrible communications
Company sends out too many promo items... I'd rather have a conversation or paid training luncheon instead of the 'stuff'

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trim the fat. Don't wait for the good, talented people to get fed up and leave you.

    Pros

    Benefits- Great 401K match, healthcare, company events

    Cons

    Very unprofessional, misleading, questionable ethics, abundance of obscenities and attacks on individuals, no real structure to anything (just wing it mentality), lack of communication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate to your employees, setup some real processes and procedures, treat individuals with respect, and use more professional language in business meetings

    I have been working at KEYW full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits to include inexpensive health care, unparalleled 401K, generous PTO and tons of Morale boosting perks. Strong reputation for excellence in performance. Large company with agile response to clients needs. Willing to take risks based in common sense that would take companies of similar size months of policy review and change to execute.

    Cons

    Most of the company's strengths revolve extremely specialized needs and complex customer problems - in short, not always the cheapest of missions to execute successfully. This sometimes puts KEYw at a disadvantage in competitive markets where the customer is willing to sacrifice quality for a best value solution. In my opinion, KEYW is not a good company for capturing competitive contracts when the Government is in financial turmoil. Not exactly a weakness, but it's business revolves around timing capture efforts with extreme strategy. Also, there is no centralized business development group, which means as a manager, you will need to be creative and versed in business development to progress in your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of emphasis is placed on maintaining low overhead costs by working in a flat environment. This sometimes puts pressure on managers to bite off more than they can handle in order to prove their worth. Remember to delegate, divide and conquer.
