    Pros

    Fun people to work with and helpful software lead

    Cons

    Not challenging, government contract ends and youre s.o.l

    Advice to Management

    Make it a fun challenging and ecouraging place for engineering to feel like its not even work. Pay better and you will have job retention.

  2. Benefits were cut significantly after I started in 2013. Not company cuts, but contract benefit cuts....

    Pros

    Nice enough folks - project driven - pay on-time seem to have a good reputation. That about covers it for pros. A good place for retirees or people about to retire.

    Cons

    It is a-buts-in-seats operation. Workspaces are not great put probably no worse than any other D.C. area contractor.
    No effort for employee development - you are expected to come with whatever skills are required and further development is up to you; time and cost. Not a great place for advancement-negotiate your pay coming in because that is about all you will ever see. Benefits are below average. Corporate IT is terrible; local support is very good.

    Advice to Management

    Who am I to tell them how to run their company? I have no interest in throwing my hat into that particular ring so I don't get a vote.

    Pros

    good co workers, good work life balance

    Cons

    Was told I could earn pay raises as part of the review process. The company that owns Wyle is only worried about the bottom line not allowing employees to advance in pay. The company has not given out pay raises for 3 years. (Whcih I had found out after getting hired) When we did get one this year it was a meager 1.6%, that won't even cover the cost of living. CAS group usually had better benefits which helped offset the wages offered. The benefits are rapidly becoming much less. (Don't know about other business units)

    Pros

    There is plenty of work to go around. You get to work closely with other groups within the project. This provides a chance to better understand all of the aspects of your project and get some insight of things you may not have studied before.

    Cons

    There is a lot of travelling. The benefits were second to none 5 years ago, but now are average at best.

    It is more of a job than a career. Promotions are not normal and neither are pay raises besides the required pay raise for inflation.

    Advice to Management

    Morale is a very important key to success in a company. It is easy to overlook employees who are hard at work in the background, but it is the responsibility of upward management to help these background heroes to believe that they are a key part to the company and that they are needed.

    Company is focused on its internal politics rather than on serving the government customer.

    Pros

    Wyle was a great company to work for. We exceeded customer expectations every day. Our pricing is higher than our major competition, but we delivered quality service. I worked for the Wyle Test Lab for 7 years, glad I did and very proud supporting many successful programs. The management team has solid expertise in what we did and they do not overlook an employees hard work and dedication. I LOVE Wyle. The test lab division was acquired by our competitor NTS, and I decided to resign.

    Cons

    I think Wyle made a mistake letting go of their test lab.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and continue to GROW..
