Current Employee - Senior Research Engineer in San Antonio, TX
Current Employee - Senior Research Engineer in San Antonio, TX

I have been working at Southwest Research Institute full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Stable, variety of work, great benefits

Cons

Company is structured like many small businesses sharing one group, however the rates are not competitive against small business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on high tech, large projects. Competing against small businesses with low capitalization and therefore low overhead is not a good growth strategy
