Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Norfolk, VA

I worked at QinetiQ North America full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Flexible time.
Management always listened when I raised concerns.
Good benefits. Standard 15 days of PTO starting, then up to 17 days after a year, and 18 after 2.

Cons

401k vesting after 2 years. They'll take their contributions back if you're there less than 2 years, for any reason.
Convoluted management structure. Management was always attentive, but there was so many of them it was hard to tell who to call for what.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I never had a problem with any of you, but the 10 chiefs to every Indian thing gets old.

    I worked at QinetiQ North America full-time (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    Nice people in my group

    Cons

    Company does not seem to have a winning strategy for growing their company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focused on R&D. SETA work will not grow.
