    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Semi academic campus feel with a genuinely pleasant staff who treat each other with respect. Very high quality deliverables and often seamless relationship with the customers.

    Cons

    Management is very uneven. The less enlightened are concerned with short term coverage of staff. For example, they have taken the research out of the research department and turned it into a body shop ripe with blatant cronyism.

    Advice to Management
