Good benefits, people skills required for promotions at higher levels.

Lead Systems Software Engineer (Current Employee) McLean, VA

ProsGreat if you're interested in serving the public interest. Also has great benefits, making the total compensation a little higher than the average company. The pace is not demanding, and working for the government is relatively stable.

ConsThere seems to be a divide between management and technical staff (with the exception of Ph.Ds concentrating on research). Promotions for engineering and technical skills are hard to come by. People skills seem more important to get promotions at the higher levels.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a (real) dual ladder promotion system for engineering and technical staff. Even though everyone says there is one already, the reality does not match the words. Engineering and technical skills do not seem to be valued, although much of what the company does depends on those skills.
