I have been working at KEYW full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I've been able to find the work that most interests me here. I find their healthcare, vacation, and retirement to be way above par for the industry. I like that they will help me find new work when I'm looking for a change.

Cons

Lots of moving pieces right now.

Advice to Management

More events for the employees that work on customer sites. Tough to get to the corporate office sometimes.

    Pros

    Company often goes above and beyond for its employees. They take a professional and personal interest. Other public companies I've worked for try to nickel and dime their employees. They have only improved funds for employees such as training since going public.

    Cons

    Often with companies that acquire companies sometimes there is a struggle with establishing identity. Keyw is still making a uniform brand to employees and external customers.

    "Poor direction, poor organization, uncaring management"

    Pros

    PTO is among the best in industry, 401k matching is superior, health care his great

    Cons

    This company is a "body shop" so to speak. Highly motivated individuals seeking a challenge would probably be better served and valued with another company. I think salary is approximately 20% below market. Many people I have spoken with have had the impression they were going to do something other that what they are actually doing, but this happens at many companies. Simply put, management only cares about you as a person upon initial hire, after that you are a dollar sign or a number to them.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with employees in a fashion other than the quarterly financial briefings.
