I worked at Ridgetop Group full-time
Being a small business there was a lot of flexibility with schedule and opportunity to interact with the upper management. A perfect place to learn various technologies and interact with Government.
The compensation package (benefits and salaries) are not competitive enough to keep and hire the best of the best engineers in the market.
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ridgetop Group (Tucson, AZ) in January 2017.
They contacted me very quickly after applying and set up an interview sooner than expected. Gave me a tour of the facilities and showed me some current projects in progress (after NDA signing). Very enjoyable experience. However, they are a small company and could not offer pay anywhere near average rate for Electrical Engineers in Tucson.
