    I worked at Miltope full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    High tech work, great opportunity to learn hands-on computer technology integration and troubleshooting.

    Cons

    Pressure from management can be intense. Most design engineering is conducted in Boulder, which can be a downside if you are a design engineer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue growing the company and innovating.

    I have been working at Miltope full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Since the new CEO took over, nothing good.

    Cons

    CEO and COO are smarter than everyone else. So smart they can't stand themselves. Classic narcissists with no real business savvy. In fact no real business resume to back it up if you dig REAL deep. Clerk and Army bureaucrat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too late. You are done.

    I worked at Miltope full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some nice people work there...not many, but there area few.

    Cons

    On boarding of employees does not exist. I completed my paperwork and was plopped at a desk. No tour, no "here's what we're doing", no nothing. Two days later, I was given things to do with no, literally, instruction or expectation, just "go do this". There is no accountability for missing KPI's/SLA's and it's always a fire drill reacting to poor quality. Extremely lazy environment. Lots of standing around. From the day I started to the day I (happily) left, I just did what I hoped was right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    DO SOMETHING! Quit point fingers and make something happen. There is potential at Miltope, but it has cancer.

    I have been working at Miltope full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some good, committed people. Good benefits. Noble mission serving the military.

    Cons

    Upper management is full of cronyism. Select group of players make all the decisions. Company does not value input of others. Engineering apparatus rules the organization and deflects responsibility for their failures while being praised by upper management. Dysfunctional at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people who know their jobs. Bring in outside expertise to duplicate best practices from other world-class companies.

    I worked at Miltope

    Pros

    +Nice people, especially outside of work.
    +Good overtime pay.

    Cons

    -Almost dystopian work environment, with plenty of manipulation and CYA behavior.
    -Work came in bursts, but there was a lot of downtime where I was basically paid to surf the Internet.
    -Deals with military and some big airlines, so there's a lot of absurd requirements that aren't really necessary but have to be met anyway.
    -Work can become very run-of-the mill after a while. Very few people I knew did much new; most just did the same old stuff they did on the previous product on the new product.
    -Way too many project managers when I was there. Don't know if that's still the case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your engineers, and try not to make them feel like small mistakes will cost them their jobs.
