I have been working at QinetiQ

Pros

Interesting Gov't contract working with Department of Homeland Security. Good balence of work and homelife. Adapting to constant change of Gov't red tape a must.

Cons

Gov't employees paid equivalent of contractors but don't have a clue are not held accountable and cannot be fired. Gov't employees are poorly trained and unmotivated. Might not get re-hired when contract rools over.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have better understanding of what average employee does on a daily basis. Better retirement plan with company vestment in 401K occuring over a shorter time period.

    I worked at QinetiQ part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Fantastic people, who feel very passionately about what they do. The work is exciting. The culture is really flexible and family friendly, I always felt very supported by my managers.

    Cons

    Progression sometimes is more about if your face fits than talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Physical working environment isn't great and needs some investment, a small thing that would make a bit difference. Some management levels take a very short term view.
