I worked at QinetiQ North America full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Small, independent shop with big-company benefits
Great team of people (now disbanded, unfortunately)
Worthwhile projects (for DoE and DoD)

Cons

No room to advance
Skills got stagnant (my own fault for not keeping up in my free time)
QinetiQ operates on a catch-your-own-work basis; if you run out of contract, you're done
No intra-company job finding service when the whole office was laid off

Advice to Management

The multiple-companies-under-one-roof model is very adversarial, and leads to isolation rather than cooperation. You could get a lot more from your offices if you'd facilitate intra-office migration.
