    I worked at QinetiQ North America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, fairly good work life balance, good working conditions, for me personnally salary was consistent with market

    Cons

    Lack of vision for moving the company to the next tier, poor communication from senior management, very high turnover, low morale. Above all, very weak senior leadership in McLean. They have no clue how to run the company.

    Advice to Management

    Andrews and Stolarik are poor leaders. Take a look at yourself and reassess your plan. Assert stronger leadership and make people accountable - including yourselves. Get in touch with what is going on at the transactional level. Your company will never pass some of the compliance audits.

    I worked at QinetiQ North America as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty laid back in terms of dress code and which hours you work in the office.

    Cons

    Too much BS, too much politics. Program Manager EXTREMELY unprofessional and lacks people skills. Also plays favorites and terminates people based on her personal feelings. Lack of communication between management and so expectations clash between managers, leading to lots of confusion for employees. PM also actively refuses to communicate with team members, even if they request meetings. Micro-management to the most ridiculous degree. For example, if you email saying you are working with John on a document she will email back and ask what do you mean? Anytime you a need a couple of hours off to go to a Dr. appt or something, you will be told to take the whole day off unpaid.
