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.

No opinion of CEO

    I worked at QinetiQ full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting types of work and trials. The people who actually do the work not including any form of management, are a good lot of people to work with.

    Cons

    They will take as much as they can from you and give no reward. Then when they find out you have a disability they will drop you at the first chance!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because someone does not fit in to your ideal world does not mean that they are useless. Take your heads out your arses and listen to the people who are on the floor. Also if someone has a disability, dont refuse them any further employment and don, t discriminate them!
