I have been working at KeyW full-time (More than 3 years)

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.

    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.
