Good pay, highly talented employees, but very cost conscious

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Annapolis Junction, MD

ProsThe company employs some of the smartest people in the industry.
The pay and benefits are generally very good.
Most of the work is very interesting and important.
The senior executives are generally very approachable and do what they can to look out for employees.
Hours worked per week are generally restricted by contract, so excessive hours are extraordinary rare.
Hours are flexible.

ConsIt is a relatively small company that is almost exclusively involved in government contracting, so billable hours are paramount. If the government closes (due to weather, the ineptitude of Congress, etc.), expect to have it counted against your vacation time (or, if you've run out of that, leave without pay).
Although the company touts its professional development benefits, it is sometimes difficult/impossible to get approval to go to conferences, especially in times of government uncertainty.
Be ready to get yanked around between contracts on the whims of the business development staff, with little say other than the general type of work you'll be doing.
Most work takes place at government facilities or facilities owned by other contractors, so you may have only limited contract with fellow employees.
Many contracts involve maintaining obsolete and poorly designed software unopened by other contractors.

Advice to Senior ManagementA more serious effort toward promoting development of skills (rather than just pursuing things that look good on a resume attached to a contract proposal) should be made. This could be coupled with an effort to promote new technologies among customer.
Offloading all risk associated with work site closures onto employees may keep overhead costs down, but it severely impacts morale.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    OK, if you have no interaction with the owner.

    I worked at Proteus Technologies


    Pros: Overall, the employees and senior leadership team are great people to work with. Benefits… Cons: The owner is a micro manager who doesn't know what he wants and changes his mind on a dime. He creates an atmosphere of fear… Advice to Senior Management: Pray that the company gets sold. It would have so… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
