    Not the worst to work for, but quite close

    I worked at QinetiQ North America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent benefits (other than health), FSA, and dependent care. 401-K participation is mandatory, and it took less than 3 years to vest 100% of the match, which was quite generous. Great environment for self-starters and quick learners.

    Cons

    At times crippled by the client (a government office), management would not try to argue for better conditions - created a condition where new hires could not work for months. Company management was concerned, though not enough to intervene properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get away from government contracts, until the government removes the one-year-axe inside the five-year contract. That's the only reason I went back to the private sector.

    Working at Qinetiq was both very rewarding and very stressful.

    I worked at QinetiQ North America as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I learned a lot and my co-workers and immediate supervisors were very supportive. I worked in a lab and the environment in the lab was very conducive to hands-on learning. I gained valuable experience during my time here.

    Cons

    Sometimes my supervisors would be under tight deadlines and that would result in equally tight relations between the members of the group. It was sometimes more fast-paced and stressful than I had initially expected, but I did learn to adjust.
