    Current Employee - Senior Mechanical Engineer  in  Waltham, MA
    Current Employee - Senior Mechanical Engineer in Waltham, MA

    I have been working at QinetiQ North America full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some nice people, decent buildings and roach coach, the bennies are OK, the pay is what draws the talent, NTB for commute and free coffee

    Cons

    Leadership is non existant, quality is compromised for quantity, program managers are clueless, no think tanks anymore and people steal food. VP's yell and scream and treat everyone except their pets like dirt, managers coast and are lazy, no cafe'. Business is tanking and too many Chiefs are too clueless to diversify the business. The laborers don't care, they all are just waiting for their pinks. Just walk in the back door, it looks like a mess and is a mess.
