    I worked at LinQuest (More than a year)

    Pros

    There aren't any pros for working for this company.

    Cons

    It is the most racist company! Several members of their upper management have major issues with minority professionals working for them, which is ironic because they bid on government contracts in which they claim to be a minority business enterprise and hire a certain amount of minorities. I know several individuals that they targeted and either harassed or ultimately got rid of because of their race or gender. And then they black ball you from working on projects (even with other companies) that they're involved on. I'm sure at some point their behavior will catch up with them. Until then... run!!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop the good old boy's network!!!!

    Pros

    I don't have any reason to work there.

    Cons

    They don't really know what they are doing. There is a serious management problem in this company.

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

    Pros

    Good entry level pay and if your willing to stick with a bad company, you'll likely be at the top one day.

    Cons

    Bad benefits and and very bad management. Most companies can manage their little issues that arise here and there. Not LinQuest. If your a Reservist or member of the National Guard, I strongly would recommend working elsewhere. Not-military friendly.

    Advice to Management

    Be ethical! It goes a long way. And don't nickel and dime your employees to death.

    Pros

    Paid time off is okay

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive, management sticks together even when they know they are wrong doing, no advancement, little pay for hard work

    Advice to Management

    do the right thing for your people who make you look good.

    I have been working at LinQuest full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Can't think of anything that would attract an employee to this subpar company unless you really need a job

    Cons

    Top heavy management in a small company that believes it is a mega company. Has absolutely no loyalty to employees; treats them like 1099 consultants.

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Senior Systems Engineer in Beavercreek, OH
    Current Employee - Senior Systems Engineer in Beavercreek, OH

    Pros

    This company had real entrepreneurial spirit. It is employee owned, and is gathering good people. One gets the impression that there is real opportunity to establish culture and pursue personal ambitions. Working environments tend to be good, with quality computers, office furniture, etc. Additionally, this company has a very flat corporate structure, making accessible even the most senior levels of management.

    Cons

    The downside is that there are a few dominant personalities which, thus far, have tended to have an disproportionate influence on operations. Additionally, as the branch office that I was working had few administrative support people, communication on topics such as ethics policies, HR, etc. were lacking.
    As this is a younger company with some very young branches, some of the wrinkles may yet be worked out through the refinement of fundamental processes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying. There is a great opportunity here for a some very good things to happen, and overall you are on the right track. Spend more time focusing on attitude, culture, and openness to new ideas. Also, flush out some of the training process, HR processes, and protocols.

    I have been working at LinQuest full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good, smart people and the pay is very good. LinQuest is like a Ferrari when it comes to the brain power there. No other company has such a high concentration of advanced degrees and leaders in their field.

    Cons

    LinQuest does not use the talent they have. They are too reliant on government contracts (all eggs in one basket) during this time of defense spending cuts. In the early days they used to be go-getters and risk takers. They tried to reach out for challenges since they were growing. Now, it's more of the hunker down and protect the billable hours.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to your roots. You have 25 PhDs and almost 200 Masters employees. Use that brain power and come up with some R&D to give LinQuest an actual product on the commercial side. Don't just use your people as Powerpoint desk jockeys.
