I have been working at QinetiQ full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

For people with initiative there is scope for Interesting work on diverse projects and opportunity to work with knowledgeable and dedicated colleagues who share many of the same ideals.
As it is a business that is reinventing itself there are good career opportunities for those with the drive to make it happen.

Cons

Office politics can sometimes lead to stovepipes, decrease overall productivity and result in effort being spent on empire building rather than productive work.
The diversified nature of the company can lead to a frustrating duplication of effort.
Negative people are left to stew and infect those with a proactive and positive approach.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more ruthless on under-performing middle management, especially sales staff with a poor track record of lead to sales conversion.
Find ways to either engage embittered staff or manage them out of the business.
