Former Employee - Senior Cyber Security Engineer

I worked at ARES full-time for more than a year

Pros

The company seeks for the best talent and project managers. They pay for skills and drive a cooperative culture. Where I worked, I was on one of their major subcontracts. Ares employees had a... strong reputation throughout the organization. I felt that I could always go to my company supervisor and lay out the good, bad, and ugly. He would help me get to a great answer and we provided better services. The other team members welcomed me onto the team.

Cons

Career progression limited to sites where they have work, which is dependent on contracts that can change every few years. However, the company is very good at identifying and marketing talent... within its major contracts.

Advice to Management

Corporate executives should find more ways to engage with employees in the field.

Current Employee - Network Analyst

I have been working at Textron Systems full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Good communication up and down the chain. Benefits are clearly defined. Let you do your work and value your opinion. Ability to move and grow with the company.

Cons

Haven't found any in 10+ years
