Exciting, Interesting work

Former Employee - Systems Engineer II  in  Redondo Beach, CA
Former Employee - Systems Engineer II in Redondo Beach, CA

Pros

Great work life balance; interesting challenges on the job with all levels of engineering done; decent pay given perks of the work life balance; Flexible hours

Cons

Difficult to advance financially or with job titles, forced (usually) minimum number of years of experience before the ability to advance; pay differences between high and low performers are not as large as with other companies; lots of government work means stability but also slow progress of work

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Incentives to work hard do not exist outside of one's internal passion for doing a good job, that is, pay differentials between high and low performers is not that great, decreasing motivation for one to go the extra mile.

Recommends

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  El Segundo, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in El Segundo, CA

    Pros

    Very supportive boss and associates. Very good support for employee education (tuition reimbursement, support for flexible schedule).

    Cons

    We were at a customer site and often felt disconnected from the rest of the company. We didn't even have full access to the NG corporate intranet from the customer site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve internal communications with employees at customer sites and make them feel like part of the company.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer  in  Andover, MA
    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Andover, MA

    Pros

    Decent work / life balance
    Individual contributors / Subject Matter Experts can lead - easy to set yourself apart
    Pay was reasonable and career growth, while limited, did increase year to year.

    Cons

    Very very process oriented company.
    Decisions on work / contracts left to the discretion of upper management / government - obviously.
    With so many government contracts - work can come and go quickly, must be able to sustain the stress of job insecurity for months at a time, until contracts are finalized. Limited opportunities in the Northeast, must move for any other interesting work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
