Stay away if you want a good engineering career

(Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

Pros- Every other Fridays off
- Good pay and benefits
- Nice people to work with

Cons- If you stay here for more than 2-3 years, you will become useless. (Get out while you still can)
- Lack of a good mentoring system for engineers
- All managers do here are traveling and looking for funding
- Constant changes to their pay-for-performance system
- Not enough technical work for engineers at the center
- Rigid management structure
- Useless training classes for engineers

Advice to Senior ManagementMore technical work, don't try to force everyone to be a project manager.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
