Extremely bright employees, top notch engineers. However corporate infrastructure and management needs improvement.

Pros

Some of the best and brightest engineers developing complex software products and challenging hardware / mechanical designs. In general employees - cross-functionally - are great to work with.

Cons

The infrastructure and processes need improvement as every software development delivery needs to be micro managed. Design quality of hardware products are only now improving, but the effort to maintain happy customers who have legacy products is challenging .

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need more compassion to employees (i.e,. every quarter there is an unforeseen reorg / downsizing). As the job market picks up there will be a mad dash out the door from frustrated employees who feel there is no security working at Mercury.

    Acknowledge good work. Don't surprise staff at review time with negative feedback. If there is an issue bring it up to give a chance to make improvements.

    Pros

    Very focused markets and customers.

    Cons

    Old technology. No new products that fit customer requirements.
    Inexperienced senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate 1998 approach to defense market and implement it again. The current model (or people) isn't (aren't) working.
