    I have been working at Dynetics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great employee development opportunities. Interesting work. Generous retirement contributions. Brilliant coworkers. It's a place you can go to work on and solve hard problems.

    Cons

    Very slow vesting schedule. Despite EDP careers tracks and paths for advancement can be a bit confusing. As the early employees retire there is some concern as to whether the company culture will remain the same.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep the small company culture alive as long as possible. Try not to bring PPL and other benefits down to the level of the competition if it can be avoid.

    I have been working at Dynetics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Treats employees very well, works hard to retain employees and maintain a low turnover. Invests in employees, with free/assisted training/tuition to aid in personal development. Works to ensure employees are in a position to succeed, and on a career path that they enjoy. Great benefits (stock options, flex time, competitive paid time off) Growing at a steady rate and in a good position to expand.

    Cons

    Has a definite conservative and religious culture. Not overpowering, and not a bad thing if you happen to be of a like mindset, but can be exclusive to others in some cases.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do a great job investing in your employees and there well-being. Consider toning down some of the more conservative/religious cultural attitudes to be more inclusive of all current and potential employees.

    Pros

    Company respects family and values your time - They go out of their way to make sure the employees are able to be creative. The company is an ESOP and therefore everyone is engaged in making sure we do well.

    Cons

    Salaries are lower than some places due to staying competitive in government contracting - but they more than make up for it in benefits and job security.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! I look forward to seeing the continued growth of the company.

        Pros

        1. Above industry-level benefits 2. Excellent organizational culture 3. Great work-life balance 4. Very ethical and professional people 5. Company hires people for what they bring to the company (long term) not for what the contract position requires (short term) 6. Company offers regular (monthly) life-coaching seminars. 7.

        Cons

        1. Because of the industry the company is in, the company is prone to the ebb and flow of the budget issues in the DoD. People scramble when the contract ends and there is no follow-on contract. There is no 'overhead' that can cover people while waiting. This causes a lot of anxiety and frustration when a contract ends - and there is no follow-on contract. The second result is people begin to look elsewhere. 2. Some...

        Advice to Management

        1. Invest in more 'skunkworks' like what Lockheed does. 2. Expand in other things (non-DoD) but do realize that commercial companies have a different product lifecycle - hence, the ebb-and-flow is not the same as the federal space. 3. Expand in other geographical locations where other contracts are located. Don't overly focus on the local customer. 4. Do something to address the ebb and flow (in between contracts)....

        Pros

        Excellent work/life balance. Fantastic mini-courses offered on campus for free. Great reputation among customers. Very knowledgeable employees. On-campus extras like a gym and daily lunch vendors.

        Cons

        Not always easy to change teams or departments. Likelihood of working off-campus at customer sites, which aren't as nice as headquarters.
