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

    I worked at QinetiQ North America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lacked burecracy. Great pay, good benefits.

    Cons

    No career path. Employment only as strong as contract funding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value inputs across levels not just from VPs.
