Great for the resume, stay for a few years and go

Senior Network Engineer (Current Employee)
Bethesda, MD

ProsThe 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

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementThe 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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
