    Sr systems engineer working in a CM/DM capacity.

    Senior Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
    El Segundo, CA

    ProsExcellent company to work for with superior senior staff and HR representation.

    ConsNone. I just wish the government didn't cut the funding for the program I was working on and that SGT had a larger presence in CA otherwise I would still be working there. They arte a very good company to work for with some very personable Sr representation, including the CEO and CFO.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good company, had no complaints

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI worked for multiple government contractors and SGT was good. Pretty standard company to work for, I never had any complaints. Had some good bosses, decent benefits, decent pay, they just ask you get the work done and keep the customer happy.

    ConsMy only complaints were noisy people in the cubicles near me, and you do feel a bit like just another person in a cubicle, depending on what team you work with. But if you're deciding whether to work there or not, I'd recommend it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHonestly no real advice, just keep things going.

    Great company, cares for its employees

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat people, great benefits packages, smart business choices. The company does a good job of communicating often with its employees. The managers were very supportive. My manager went to bat for me multiple times, especially when it came to performance reviews and pay increases.
    I came to SGT through the acquisition of another company. Both sides made the transition seemless, and I have been very satisified with the result.

    ConsContracting is a tough business. When your contract ends and there aren't a lot of prospects out there, there's not much the company can do. However, they will do their best to find you something.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep appreciating your employees. That goes a long way.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The best place to gain career power!

    Principal Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
    Sioux Falls, SD

    ProsBrilliant management and the best place to climb the ladder of your career. The company supports, enables and promotes your success and has many programs which pay for your training, skill transfer, and certifications. Not to mention great college tuition benefits.

    ConsNone as much as I can tell if anything it would be not many tools available to turn in good ideas to improve the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what your doing because if it's not broke don't fix it and stay a private company.

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

    employee-oriented and friendly

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
    Greenbelt, MD

    Prossmaller organization that seems to genuinely care about their employees. Provides good motivation for employees to succeed and fosters a collegial atmosphere.

    Consopportunities may be more limited than those at larger organizations, but I'd gladly trade opportunity for job satisfaction.

    Advice to Senior Managementcontinue to value the employees, and we'll continue to provide the best support that we can!

    Meh. Just another company contracted at EROS.

    Senior Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
    Sioux Falls, SD

    ProsMeh. Do what they need to do to maintain the contract. Mostly good people who work at EROS, but the people who work at EROS are largely the same regardless of which company wins the contract.

    ConsInvests little in employees, does not support industry experts in it's ranks. Lacks vision or leadership in business process or technical engineering.

    Professionally rewarding and challenging

    Research Scientist (Current Employee)
    Mountain View, CA

    Pros- Traditional work environment, but with a reasonably flexible work schedule.
    - Very supportive work environment.
    - Project contributions are recognized and reasonably rewarded.

    Cons- PTO is not the greatest.
    - Benefits package could be better, perhaps on par with some of the benefits offered by other bay-area companies.
    - Reimbursement processing could be quicker and electronic.

    Advice to Senior Management- Non salary benefits (such as support in seeking housing, car purchase, public transportation reimbursement, etc.) would go a long way in enhancing the already good perception of the organization.
