Current Employee - Software Engineer in Gaithersburg, MD

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

Pros

Chance to work on lots of different projects. Relaxed atmosphere. When I had to leave work for a family emergency there was no question about me leaving, only if everyone was okay when I got back.

Cons

Upper management doesn't trust anyone. There are no real raises or promotions, just occasional reshuffling. They say straight out the only way to get a raise is to bring them an offer from another company. Otherwise, no way. They pay below standard for the industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employee loyalty is worth paying for.
