Current Employee - Information Technologist in Los Angeles, CA
No opinion of CEO

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 Management

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 full-time

    Pros

    Great people at working level, huge levels of dedication and focus on customer satisfaction. Interesting and varied range of technical projects. Business is trying to grow, if successful will open up new opportunities for individuals.

    Cons

    Lack of any real leadership or direction from senior managers. A culture of management by fear for those who don't act and behave in the way expected.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your customers are really saying about your performance, not what you think you are hearing. Invest in your people - they really are your only valuable asset.

    I worked at QinetiQ full-time

    Pros

    Very friendly team. Always had some people there to help if needs be and enjoyed coming into work. Frequent outings as a team to celebrate something.

    Cons

    Not enough work or training. When we did have work, it usually ended up being the same people who did everything and didn't share a lot.
