I worked at QinetiQ North America full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good pay, relaxed atmosphere most all the time

Cons

Job hiring/layoffs sort of knee-jerk depending on funding, layoff notice nonexistent and they don't "do it well"

Advice to Management

Plan your work funding much better, provide better continuity to your employees

    I have been working at QinetiQ North America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    QinetiQ North America does have a plethora of real top class experts and individuals and it's a joy to work with them.

    Cons

    The recent senior management changes and the restructuring has left a number of groups adrift and unguided. Simply reorganizing and growing divisions by amalgamation works on the premise that the divisional managers and support staff can cope and this is not the case.

    The changes and the subsequent mergers of divisions has left a number of staff that are not in the core 'Defense and Security' realm to feel adrift and unguided. This has led to a number of excellent staff leaving before the situation worsens.

    The senior management needs to really listen to the staff and not pay lip service to their complaints and issues. How many staff need to leave before it becomes an issue for management to address?

    Advice to Management

    Instead of promoting the Town Hall Meetings and engagements and nodding as the staff provide you their inputs, really listen ans act on the issues being raised. We are losing good staff everyday and we cannot survive while our technical excellence is leaving us.

    I worked at QinetiQ North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work is good and the facilities are nice. There are really good people that work there. Managers are knowledgeable and know what they're doing. The company does some amazing things in technology.

    Cons

    Some confusion about what the company does and its strategy. With all the acquisitions it is difficult to know what the company is selling. There is no clear business development strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a better strategy and objectives for the business units and communicate it to the lowest levels. Give people opportunities to develop and grow in the company.
