I worked at Applied Information Sciences full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Smart people in the company, decent pay. With the right management you can maintain a successful career.

Cons

Engineers are blamed for poor management. The atmosphere is very (unnecessarily) corporate, and feels driven by money and power over love for the craft. Shipping crap and shifting blame is the away to get ahead. Raises are below cost of living adjustments, unless you can jump positions. On the bright side, if you're in the cliquey inner circle, you can eat on the corporate card quite often.

Advice to Management

I don't know what to suggest. Delivering rushed products to government concerns and enterprise level customers seems to be working well for you.

    I worked at Applied Information Sciences full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Out of the half dozen former employees I know none would ever consider AIS as an employer, partner or client. They have some bright people there but they are all burned out by terrible program managers and executives.

    Cons

    The main problem is that The "leaders" are self serving egotistical amateurs. The executives don't know how to correct this and this has created a very hostile working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Look over your staffing. You have a lot of incompetent people willing to destroy all your hard work
