    Former Employee - Laboratory Intern  in  Waltham, MA
    Former Employee - Laboratory Intern in Waltham, MA

    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.

    I worked at QinetiQ North America as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent co-workers, good teamwork, one good line manager. Free bagels on Fridays.

    Cons

    Flagrantly dishonest management, "encouragement" to work unreported overtime on Federal contracts, Prima Donnas promoted and out of control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gut middle management - all of it.
