    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Vencore Labs full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You can find real experts under one roof. Work/life balance is still valued and respected

    Cons

    Management is clueless. The track record for commercializing IP is nil. Considerable internal competition is hurting morale.

    Advice to Management

    Too much management overhead. Some of the leadership should go on sabbatical, Making internal people fight for every proposal is not a growth strategy. Build long-term relationship with product companies and create a viable path for revenue besides contract research.


  2. "A "Decent" Research Company"
