I worked at QinetiQ as an intern

Pros

The work at QinetiQ is some of the most interesting anywhere. With a great range of possibilities, business has now been streamlined. The company has a great work life balance.

Cons

The company was going through a period of major change at the time of working, with many fearing for jobs. But the company previously had issues harnessing the capabilities of the employees to create products.

    Stop the self congratulations and constant blood squeezing from the workers.

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

    Pros

    Spacious work environment, modern infrastructure (bldgs). Some options were available to upgrade skills but it is mostly on the job.

    Cons

    Much of research converted to reports, nobody sees the light of. Little of any blue sky research anyways. Because money is tight and only coming from customers, we are tied to solving customers present requirements. Which means QQ is existing only because of its current capabilities, which were developed during the past blue sky research days. Without having the money to invest in future capabilities, QQ is much dependent (and handicapped) on capabilities developed by other mega corporations.

    Advice to Management

    Quit managing and get your hands dirty by doing some real engineering.
