I worked at QinetiQ North America (More than 3 years)
supportive and collaborative environment, industry experts, opportunities to learn
very few to no promotion opportunities
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at QinetiQ North America (Herndon, VA) in July 2009.
Very quick interview. 1 on 1 they are looking for a match between skills and job description. No trick questions.
Research the position. Ask for you you really want.
