    I have been working at McKean Defense Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Steadily growing, flexible, defense engineering and admin support firm. Plenty of opportunities within the company, with weekly updates about newly available positions. Solid referral program. Employee Stock Ownership Program is promising.

    Cons

    Most positions are in San Diego, DC, or Philadelphia. Limited presence outside of major Naval politics centers. Pressure to join philanthropy committee and attend events can be a nuisance.

    I have been working at McKean Defense Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Some of the best benefits in the industry, particularly for a company that was recently a small business (401K match, company-paid life insurance, dental, multiple health options, identify theft assist, legal, free 24/7 retirement/financial management advice from Morgan Stanley consultants, quarterly wellness clinics, etc.) -Company recently went ESOP -Flex schedule and remote work always an option -Constant ability to submit business improvement ideas & reaction to ideas -Direct access to management -The more effort I've demonstrated as an employee with a willingness to go above & beyond, the more that it is recognized by management (title changes, promotions, bonuses, etc.)

    Cons

    -Company's growth has escalated so quickly that the culture has taken a hit. It used to be a tight-knit, family environment, and the influx of on and off site employees has decreased the engagement level. -A specific few employees sometimes create negative workplace situations.

    Advice to Management

    -Corporate tends to always see the bigger picture or the long-term plan, and can sometimes overlook the short- term situation that most employees are focused on. Communication is there, but not always effective.
