Pros

AS&E was a market leader and in 2010 it was flying and it was fun. Pay is good.

Cons

Mgmt was reluctant to make any key decisions over the last few years and continues to punt on key critical decisions. No real leaders or expertise that one can count on just disparate opinions, unrealistic views and understanding of the shrinking marketplace. I've never observed such low employee morale.

    I worked at American Science and Engineering full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Small company. Everyone matters. Good product. Challenging and lots of satisfaction. If you have a good manager you will be encouraged to become proactive with ideas to help improve operations and technical issues

    Cons

    Sr management very corrupted. Middle managers (VP's) only budget driven with no regard for anything else. First line management over burdened and hence non responsive to direct reports. Lots of back stabbing in service by support people.

    Advice to Management

    OSI will get rid of some of the problems
