    Advice to Management

    I do not have any advice for management other than that they should keep doing what they are doing, the financials of this place are solid.

    Pros

    SwRI has good to excellent benefits, including health care and retirement account contributions. They pay a reasonably good salary, though certainly not on the high end. I experienced no draconian overtime requirements during my time there.

    Cons

    The group I was with was not open to exploring new technologies, even when they may have been more appropriate for the job. Also, they require a 5 year vesting period for retirement contributions they make, which is the case even if they decide to terminate your employment.

    Advice to Management

    I was generally happy with management.
