Mercury Systems has built a next generation business model that we believe puts us in a unique position within the defense industrial base and in particular within defense electronics. Today within the DoD and the industrial base that supports it, challenges have taken center stage around the need for procurement reform, the more rapid and timely adoption of open systems based architectures, and the need to be nimble and responsive in the face of continued uncertainty at home and instability abroad. Mercury Systems has adopted a next generation business model that we believe addresses these pressing issues, while at the same time leveraging our 30-year commitment to innovation.
We deliver innovative solutions, rapid time-to-value, and world-class service and support to our prime contractor customers. Mercury Systems has worked on over 300 programs, including Aegis, Patriot, SEWIP, Gorgon Stare and Predator/Reaper.
Culture that Matters
At Mercury we are smart, talented people who help one another. We are industry leaders developing cutting edge technology. We are proud of our mission to support our troops. We are Mercury, pioneering innovation that matters.
We are committed to making Mercury a great place to work! Mercury offers a casual and gratifying work environment. We encourage employees to get involved while providing ample opportunities to learn and grow. Our social committees customize activities at each site such as holiday celebrations and participation in local activities such as blood drives and family-friendly events.
Women in Leadership
Meet some of Mercury’s fearless females; a tribute to all women who have ever “crushed it”.

Our College Co-Op Program provides a real-world hands-on experience right from the start. In fact, many of our co-op participants have secured full-time jobs at Mercury after graduation.
Mercury’s Value Proposition - Engineering and Technology
o Work on new and exciting designs
o Work on things that you wouldn’t be able to do at a large systems house
o Upward mobility
o Make high aspirations become a reality
o Work on multiple things, multiple projects at the same time.
Benefits that Matter
At Mercury, you will get a lot more than a competitive salary and an exciting work environment. We offer a robust health care package and a full roster of employee benefits to maintain a culture of health.

I have been working at Mercury Systems full-time (More than 3 years)
It's a dynamic, fast-paced atmosphere at Mercury Systems with a stellar leadership team. You're surrounded by extremely talented co-workers who are committed to delivering the best capabilities to the U.S. warfighter.
Mercury emphasizes life-long learning and backs it up with actions. If you want to broaden your horizons, nobody will stand in your way. I've had more formal and informal learning opportunities at Mercury than all the other companies I've worked for, combined.
Mercury rewards top performers, both financially as well as career opportunities.
The company has a great set of culture and values. They operate by that code so it's not just something listed on an inspirational poster.
The company does a great job with internal communications, especially given how many sites, both domestic and international, there are.
People work hard at Mercury, because they want to and because management sets a high bar. So work-life balance is very difficult to achieve.
Health care costs are high and compared to defense primes to justify, yet the company says it operates as a commercial high-tech company. Benefits should match (or be close to) those of a commercial high-tech company.
Advice to Management
Keep doing exactly what you are doing. As the company gets larger, be more vigilant on rooting out people who talk a lot but deliver little in reality (but give the impression they deliver a lot)
Modify your performance management process to allow any employee to anonymously submit feedback (positive or negative) to another employee's manager, like Google does. This would help give managers more balanced feedback on their employees and determine appropriate development activities.
Keep communicating clearly - your communications strategy is working.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mercury Systems (Huntsville, AL) in February 2018.
The process was focused not just on my background and experience, but also on whether the position and the company would be a good, mutually beneficial fit. I found this refreshing and helpful, in that it reduced some of the tension that often surrounds interviews, and candidly focused on whether this was a good fit for both parties.
