I have been working at Argon ST full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

There are many talented electrical and software engineers that challenge each other to be their best. There are fascinating projects to work on that provide a new hire with challenging opportunities to develop their experience.

Cons

Management is mostly made up of engineers who have been promoted into management by other managers that are also former engineers. So there is a tendency to "engineer" the organization using processes and tools and avoid confronting personnel issues that come up when managing people.

Argon ST prefers to "grow its own" experience and can be a difficult company for experienced professionals to integrate into.

The organization has been in a merger process since being acquired by Boeing in 2010. Management is still trying to find its way and benefits are not what they used to be.

Advice to Management

Don't be afraid to rock the boat if that is what it takes to do the right thing.

    Pros

    Good people, working hard - strong sense of community

    Some "old timers" - fairly set in their ways - not very flexible. Hard for them to be open to change.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to new ideas.
