    Former Employee - Senior Engineer  in  Sebring, MD
    Former Employee - Senior Engineer in Sebring, MD

    I worked at MEI Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company compensates its employees better than average, considering the fact that they charge NASA big $$ for the engineering services they provide, I was satisfied with my salary. The benefits are average, the management communication and relationship with the employees on-site at NASA is almost non-existent.

    Cons

    There are no opportunities to advance your career if you are an MEI engineer and working on-site at NASA. You'd work at the same engineering level for years known as contractor and hope there are more work for you so they keep you, meanwhile civil servants with a few years work experience since college, a tiny fraction of your work experience and knowledge rule over you. What hurts is that, I was the recipient of the most unethical act done by two NASA civil servants and an MEI management who admitted that they tried to save their friend whose project at NASA was terminated and had no work at the time. They bumped me out of my job and later MEI gave me a pink slip, this was to the surprise of my team-workers, the corroborators gave him the lead position which he did not deserve and was not competent to do, he was removed from that position later by NASA due to his lack of competence. I considered suing MEI had I not signed an agreement formfitting my right to sue the company prior to my employment at MEI.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    NASA projects run their own engineering management, MEI is irrelevant. MEI management should be more involved and take care of their employees, find them new tasks and opportunity to move to different department if needed, customer is right but not at the employees cost.

    I worked at MEI Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Up to date on processes and procedures. Salary fairly good.

    Cons

    Favoritism runs rampant at corporate. They will find a reason to fire you if upper management doesn't like you. I got another job and left the company because of seeing the injustice done here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up, just because someone is different doesn't mean they are a bad employee. I have seen way to many employees get fired because someone from upper management didn't like them. Upper management will hire their friends whenever a friend needs a job.

    Pros

    Mid level management really seems to care about their employees.

    Cons

    Contract negoations generally seem to mostly benefit the company at the expense of the employees. Employee promotion is very limited for non-management types.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to promote your employees.
