Current Employee - Senior Network Engineer in Bethesda, MD

I have been working at OPNET

Pros

The people are geniuses there. The environment is such that information sharing between people is great. A great place to learn

Small and powerful company that lets you run the show. I have learned so much about all parts of a software company as I participated in the sales to software creation to contracts process

The products are well made and well appreciated. The successes will make you look like a hero to the customers

Cons

The pay structure looks to be for new engineers. The benefits and promotion cycle is suited to those starting their career.

There is a ton of turn over with employees. Nobody leaves and says 'I hated OPNET.' They leave and say 'great opportunities but now I want to take care of my own'

For this reason, most people are quite young there, under 35.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The employment model is working. Making it easy to stay a long time will change the model and thus change the company. It produces good results just not long term careers at the company

    I worked at OPNET

    Pros

    Industry leader for network simulation and modeling. Bethesda is an amazing city to work. The work is very interesting and engaging

    Cons

    Working on the consulting side of the company, I found it difficult to be noticed or recognized for my successes on customer projects from within OPNET.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that the job market is not necessarily the same for the entire company and you should treat different employees as commodities appropriately.
