    Pros

    Extremely generous benefits package. Great working environment, they tend to hire experienced, former government and military personnel with proven track records, so everyone is competent, hard working and dedicated. The management takes care of the employees. Even though hard work is expected, the company respects balance of life for its people and provides generous vacation and sick time benefits.

    Cons

    A small organization that is almost totally dependent on defense spending. Loss of a single contract could significantly and negatively impact the workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify into non-defense research areas to provide a buffer should defense spending decrease.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    strong compensation package with generous benefits
    minimal bureaucracy
    you will be left alone if your contract is well funded and your Program Manager is well respected.

    Cons

    Since this is a small company, the character and reputation of the Program Managers will impact the future opportunities of their direct reports. When a Program Manager has a negative relationship with the customer, contracts disappear. Unfortunately, this has become the new standard.

    Advice to Management

    Review the Program Managers based on performance metrics.
    It's easy for a PM to let their direct reports go when contracts are lost. Unfortunately, Program Managers are never held accountable for their contribution to the contract losses.
