    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Company benefits and the HR team are excellent. The best I have ever seen.

    Cons

    Nepotism at its best among management. Unethical managers hire their relatives and friends just to burn budget. If you want to survive, you have to kiss up and be their friends. If you call out any wrong doing from management, they will give you hell until you quit.

    Advice to Management

    The company should apply strict rules to management to avoid nepotism. Also ban managers from hiring their own relatives to work under them or in the same division.

    I worked at KeyW full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The entire company is inovative, agile, and has a good work - play mix. There is even a "Chief Fun Officer" selected every year.

    Cons

    There's a huge lack of communication, not just virtical in the organization, but even horizontal. The company grew up in the Intel community, and their internal culture shows their background. Unfortunately, it causes a lot of problems.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to communicate more with the staff and with peers.
