    Takes a certain personality to work here and enjoy it.

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Colorado Springs, CO

    ProsNice facility, most of the staff are bright and pleasant people. Small company, with pot-lucks and intimate company get-togethers. Salaries are pretty good. Lots of different projects going on, never dull.

    ConsThey treat staff here like bricks. If you're available, then you are thrown into a project, whether you are qualified or not, and whether you want to do it or not. You career development plans are not a consideration.

    There is a lot of hardware level work here, too much for a software geek like me.

    There is little software development methodology here, not even agile. We are basically a hack shop. No reviews, no designs. Just code it up and ship it.

    The president and CEO is a major type-A control freak. She will drive you crazy and quite possibly out the door to find other work. It is mainly because of her that this place has a very high turn-over rate. Without her, this place might be tolerable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe CEO needs to keep her nose out of engineering's way. We have some really talented folks here who know a thing or two about engineering software. If you'd let them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very high turn-over company

    Senior Engineer (Former Employee)
    Colorado Springs, CO

    Pros- There are some interesting projects funded by defense department
    - Nice location and some good people to work with and vent the frustration

    Cons- Unreasonable project schedule
    - The owner and CEO is very arrogant without much people skills
    - Lack of respect to the employee
    - High staff turn-over rate and unstable work environment (some left in less than one month)

    Advice to Senior Management- Get some basic training on people skill and people management

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The absolute worst company I ever worked for

    Engineer (Former Employee)
    Colorado Springs, CO

    ProsThe insane environment forces workers to establish close bonds with each other in order to survive.

    ConsThe owner/president is the worst...no human relationship skills whatsoever. Turn-over of employees reaches 80% annually. Very few long term employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShut down the company and go into therapy

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
