Pros

It has the best benefits I've ever had. Also, the culture is one of trust that people will do the right thing and solve the problems they are asked to solve. Engineers are allowed to do what they want think is right.

Cons

Focus is more on individual effort than team performance and team synergy. Being allowed to do what you think is best is great when you're right and frustrating when help and support is needed. We solve hard problems and sometimes more people working together would get things done faster.

Advice to Management

People need more recognition - not just the percieved superstars.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Excellent compensation package. The work is challenging and the employees are (for the most part) all very intelligent, hard-working, and friendly.

    Cons

    Working in a government contracting environment can be a bit frustrating and tedious with all of the myriad rules, regulations, and red tape.

    Advice to Management

    None

  2. Great if you're an Engineer or Scientist. Terrible if you're not.

    Pros

    The technology is cutting edge, but unfortunately mostly classified. The environment is fairly laid back. Many of the people are great to work with. You arguably play a critical role in the security of the United States.

    Cons

    Career pathing is nearly nonexistent. You have to fight for every single piece of advancement you get, if any at all.

    Compensation is wildly inconsistent -- some people are hellaciously overpaid, while others are making unfairly meager wages.

    Once a manager, always a manager -- talented people are sometimes let go while ineffective managers survive even when there isn't necessarily a job for them to do.

    Lots of deadwood in non-technical areas such as the Finance Division, especially management in Business Operations and Contracts.

    The new leadership in Human Resources is a joke and has upset many employees on many different levels.

    Advice to Management

    Be as objective in evaluating your management as you are in evaluating your costs and ways to cut them. Identify young talent and ensure they have a career path, rather than forcing them to speak up and rattle a cage.
