    Pros

    Many, many different career paths. Can do well if you contribute and help with the success of programs.

    Cons

    As with most big companies, can be lots of process and bureaucracy. Can be at risk of being pigeon holed if you don't speak up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open communication works well, share with the team and let them know how their contributions help programs succeed.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer  in  Tewksbury, MA
    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Tewksbury, MA

    Pros

    Very interesting problems in defense and science that are changing the world, protecting the nation, and advancing technologies that leverage scienctific and mathematical research.

    Good benefits.

    Laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    Higher concentration of fuddy duddy engineers and managers than at my current employer.

    Extremely slow to adopt new technologies. You'll use ClearCase instead of Git. There's little Python in sight; if you're lucky large scripts are in Perl instead of csh shell script.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify the weak and let them go, unless you're weak yourself. In that case: you're not qualified to discern them.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
