    Progeny Systems is what you make of it.

    Anonymous (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits. Flexible work schedule. Company generously rewards hard work and good attitude. Great opportunity to help develop, design and build products to protect our nation's soldiers.

    ConsCompany struggles with releasing employees who don't fit in. Management lacks skills to manage effectively. Opportunity for advancement in most areas does not exist. Job titles don't accurately reflect place in company. Management can sometimes be compared to a college fraternity complete with hazing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake better care of your good people by listening to what they have say.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good benefits and morale,

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe company has good benefits, flexible work schedule, and went an extra step to make sure that employees were happy at work. The company is also full of very competent minds and made work a joy.

    ConsThe upper-level management seemed to promote lower-level managers with little regard for actual management skills. Sometimes it was difficult to access management because they would not be available.

    Agile Organization that eliminated all the great benefits of being a small startup

    Test Engineer (Former Employee)
    Groton, CT

    ProsInitially when I started with the organization there was a great work/life balance. Soda, snacks, and monthly Costco trips were common-place. So was Nerf Gun battles between offices. Around 2008-2009 this all ended. The organization shifted to a more hard-core approach and eliminated any of the free office benefits.

    The organization still has a good reputation in the industry and some really talented folks working for them.

    ConsDrastically below-average salaries
    Management does not heed advice
    Focused purely on Defense Contracts and does not utilize talent well
    Many talented folks leaving
    No support for the IT department. The current CIO is a Network guy who's been with the organization since it was a single small office. Management does not want to spend the money on IT infrastructure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide training to management
    Do not promote people just because they've been there a long time, promote people with management skills

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
