    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees, give them some leeway and let them grow. Make sure that the people you place in management are well prepared and do their job well. Need to get rid of micro management. People get intimidated and stressed out. Please upgrade to the newest and latest technology, no one uses C and C++ anymore.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Bethesda, MD

    I worked at OPNET full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of smart people there and there is a a lot of very technical and challenging work.

    Cons

    They are a company that hasn't seemed to keep up with the times. They haven't adapted to new software processes, new languages, new SCM tools, or anything in the world of software development. They also are too slow to let go of underperforming engineers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The cons I listed pretty much translate directly into advice.
