    I worked at Adnet Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The managers are genuinely concerned about the employees and create a pleasant work atmosphere. And the company is small enough that you don't feel like just another part in a great machine.

    Cons

    The biggest con had to do with the nature of the work and not necessarily with the company. Because it was to support an ongoing project, the work was well-defined with few opportunities for advancement. However, within our small team, it was possible to explore and learn all the various roles. For example, a backend developer could learn front-end development if they had an interest.

    I have been working at Adnet Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A majority of ADNET exists to fill a handful of government contracts supplying scientists to the goverment. Because of the nature of the contracts and how specialized the work is, the job security is generally very good. Should ADNET lose the contracts to another firm, a majority of their workforce would likely be picked up by the new company. ADNET did this when they took over many of their current contracts. Also because of the highly specialized work, the culture is very academic and relaxed-- driven, but relaxed.

    Most senior management has a good open door policy and is generally very receptive to personal concerns or problems with the work. This isn't to say they are always with you, but they make themselves available more than similar companies of slightly larger size.

    Cons

    It's a government contractor with all the pitfalls of that type of work. Cost-cutting is always a problem. New ideas are almost always shot down. Managers are promoted mostly based on seniority or the recommendations of clients, but rarely outright skill. A lot of the work force is satisfied with "good enough." Everything is political... You get the idea.

  3. "Summer Intern"

    I worked at Adnet Systems as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company, very accommodating to me as a summer intern. I only met several adnet employees however because I was working at NASA GSFC.

    Cons

    Only downside is that they don't hire a lot of engineers, so its unlikely I'll be able to apply to work there after graduating.

    Pros

    ADNET is an extremely supportive employer and management is always friendly to deal with. Management is extremely receptive to new ideas and ADNET's contracting customers are great to work with.

    Cons

    Working for ADNET's customers, one rarely sees ADNET's management. One could go 3-6 months at a time without seeing one's own management.
