    Not bad, but it can wear on you, especially if you're young.

    Electrical Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat place to know the technology being developed for the military and being a part of that. It's also great to know that you're helping to protect and possibly save the lives of Soldiers that may use the very technology you helped develop.

    ConsMany processes and hoops to get through to get tasks accomplished, which is expected. Creativity is not really fostered, but I believe it really depends on where in the government you are and what projects come your way.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ProsVaried work, good people, job stability if you are a government employee.

    ConsNo job stability if you're not a government employee. Lots of red tape.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess layers of management, more $$ needs to be directed to R&D.

    Disappointing start for someone who started his career.

    Electronics Engineer (Current Employee)
    Aberdeen, MD

    ProsGood vacation plan. Management is nice. If you're old and looking for a more relaxed place to work then this is the place to be.

    ConsIf you're looking for challenging techincal work, this is not the place to be! It is very difficult to move up. For new graduates in engineering, this isn't the best place to work if you are hungry and looking to expand your technical skills. Advanced degrees aren't very useful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet Organized!

    Difficult to get your work done

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Champaign, IL

    ProsFreedom to do what you want, unlimited budget at times

    ConsA business that is benchmarked like a research university with very skewed incentives. Our work was based on publishing once or twice a year, with very high turn-over and lack of communication between management and employees. Our goals changed almost daily, including the roles that the employees fulfilled. Additionally, the most inexperienced staff at times were given projects and roles that could be done better by others. Everything was at a certain point micro-managed by management with high opaqueness on the goals of the work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRequire more from employees and more definitively.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Huntsville, AL

    ProsThe pressure one might find in the private sector is not as present when working for the public sector. The United States Army has given me many opportunities to grow and develop into a top quality engineer.

    ConsThe pay is comparable but not as good as the private sector.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter pay.
