I have been working at QinetiQ North America full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Have worked for QNA in San Diego for 3+ years supporting Dept. of Navy. Company leadership has given us a lot of leeway to do our work and influence our clients and encourages business development. Leadership has developed good relationships with competitive small business. Salary is in the middle of the road for the industry with above average benefit options.

Cons

Unfortunately, DoD has suffered with the economy, budget, and current administration so work has tightened and so have budgets. We were not given any merit increase in salary (not even cost of living). Very difficult to move up or laterally in the company.

Advice to Management

Reinstate merit increases or bonuses for stand-out employees, especially those of us who continue to bring in or expand work.

    I worked at QinetiQ North America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time there and got to work on some cool projects

    Cons

    Pay was bad. Kept telling us every year times were tough even though I was always working and paid by the project. Found out that people at corporate offices were pocketing massive bonuses. Part of the reason I left is because I felt like they didn't even know we existed. We were huge cash cows and when I hit 5 years with the company I didn't even get a flimsy piece of paper.

    Advice to Management

    People that don't work in your corporate offices do exist.
