    Pros

    You'll find interesting and unique opportunities that you aren't likely to find, especially in the King of Prussia area. Paid time off is decent and the 401k plan is nice.

    Cons

    Long term employment prospects often seem unstable. The employment experience can vary greatly from group to group and manager to manager. Education assistance and health benefits have reduced in quality over the year.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the needs of employees and invest more in their improvement. Provide a more stable and consistent employment experience.

    Pros

    Ultra flexible work days 9-80 work week (get every other Friday off) Lots of Time off (15 vacation, 10 holidays per year) Employees go above and beyond for each other

    Cons

    Few contracts and future work seems to be 5+ years out before anything worth while rolls in. Company cares very little about employees and can go above and beyond to get rid of them. Not a very diverse workplace Very little chance of real design work. Most of the job consisted of sustainment and engineering analysis

    Pros

    Flexible hours, some interesting problems. Very nice, very smart employees.

    Cons

    I wasn't developing. Many workers were trying to split their time across multiple teams which meant they couldn't focus on one project. Classified nature of work meant everything moved more slowly. Hard to get your hands on an unclassified computer, even if you need one for development. Company seemed to be cutting costs wherever they could. No bonuses. All the bureaucracy of working for the government combined with the wacky fun of working in an incredibly dull office.

    Advice to Management

    Occasionally spring for the little things that make things happy. Give employees donuts every once in awhile, don't make us pay to bring a guest to the holiday thing. It doesn't have to cost a lot, but a small gesture to show that you value keeping quality employees more than you want to cut any cost (no matter how small) would be appreciated

    Pros

    Through my internship this past summer, I was able to refine and expand my own personal abilities and at the same time, learn about every aspect of the company. My manager and coworkers were extremely approachable and supportive. I constantly felt like everyone was excited to have me working there.

    Cons

    The office can feel slightly isolated from other people.

    Advice to Management

    More opportunities for interns from different areas to meet would be nice. Also a tour of the building would be helpful.
