    I have been working at LinQuest full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work is highly specialized; able to work on what you're good at; competitive pay; good work life balance

    Cons

    Very much like a traditional company, partly due to the fact that they serve a very traditional government customer. Not a lot of out of box thinking.

    Pros

    Smaller agile company that supports its employees, a good place to thrive and grow your career. The management team is not afraid of rolling up their sleeves and digging to everyday work. The entire team is engaged and mindful of what it takes to get the job done right.

    Cons

    I have found very few cons with my time at this company company.

    I worked at LinQuest full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with the people was an absolute pleasure. The biggest benefit was NO micromanaging. Sometimes long hours, but I was never board. Benefits are good, profit sharing is great, employee recognition is good, and time off was very flexible. There are many advance degrees in the organization with much cross departmental cooperation.

    Cons

    Senior management is a bit out of touch. Management says that they have an Open Door policy, but the doors are always locked. I once looked at the company intranet and noticed that the President has a web page, but there was only a caption asking for comment submissions. There were zero submissions. On day the company president was in the office, and asked if anyone has seen his page. I was confused because I recently viewed the site, and seen an almost blank page. I did not speak out because I knew it was a trick question. He replied that the page is blank, and that he intentionally has it this way. He stated that he received comments, but will not share them with employees. ? STRANGE.

    Pros

    Great people and good work. Projects I worked on were usually very interesting.

    Cons

    Corporate culture was getting too formal, less familiar. Corporate rules from top management were intended to grow the company into more mainstream, but generally took power from the lower management where it had historically resided. Rather than allowing managers to manage their people according to the needs of the team, everything started to become more top-down directed.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your lower managers. If you don't trust them to manage people and projects, why did you put them in that position?

    Pros

    Good benefits, good people, good work, ability to move around within the company (depending on type of work and job skills)

    Cons

    As the company is growing it is becoming increasingly bureaucratic. Policies are becoming more constraining with less flexibility given to lower management.

    I worked at LinQuest full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with my colleagues there as well as the customer, Group 64 at the MIT Lincoln Laboratory.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any serious cons. However, my job had me working on site at MIT Lincoln Laboratory and aside from three colleagues who were on site with me, I did not have much interaction with LinQuest itself.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Profit Sharing is good. Some of the managers are good and they seem to care about the employees. Employees are more technically competent than the industry average.

    Cons

    Working hours are less flexible than the industry norm. No sick leave and minimal vacation time is provided even to salaried employees.

    Advice to Management

    More flexible time work hours are needed to keep the employees happy
