    I have been working at Riverside Research Institute as an intern

    Pros

    They have a strong commitment to continuing education including helping pay for employees to get a masters/Doctorate. Office is clean and break rooms have free snacks and drinks for employees (Interns have to pay 25 cents) They have flexible hours to work you can come in and work early or late or standard 8:00 to 5:00. As an intern you gain a lot of real world experience and you get to do what you were hired into so no form filling, phone answering, etc. Friendly and helpful employees that are willing to help you if needed. They are also non-profit so a lot of free cookouts/etc. for employees.

    Cons

    For a software developer the environment may at times be restrictive. The non-profit nature means long term employment can be hit or miss depending on funding. Sometimes corporate decisions/policies are confusing and seem to cause issues. Benefits also are somewhat shrinking.

    I have been working at Riverside Research Institute

    Pros

    Riverside Research has better benefits than any other government contractor in the WPAFB area. Compensation is also very competitive, if you are able to accurately estimate what you should be making and ask for it. Riverside treats their employees like family and is loath to let anyone go. Though contracts come and go, Riverside recognizes that people are its greatest asset and works hard to find people new positions.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of government contracts (i.e. the tendency of employees to be embedded at client sites), it can be difficult to gain recognition for accomplishments. Employees with behavioral problems tend to get special treatment in the form of better positions.
