    Pros

    I had an outstanding experience in the application, interview, and offer process with Mercury Systems. Specifically, Rob Retalic of the Talent Acquisition Team went WAY above and beyond to help land me my position at a salary that was more than I expected. I cannot wait to start my next chapter with more teammates of Rob's caliber.

    The development environment is a bit of a mess, and while that's changing every day, it is still a pain to use git one day and clearcase the next.

    Solid DoD Company

    Aug 16, 2022 - Verification and Validation Engineer in Huntsville, AL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I've worked at several DoD companies in Huntsville and it's been the best one so far. Things can get busy during crunch time, but overall the projects are manageable, the culture is good, and the work is fun.

    Cons

    There's these very strange "hip" initiatives that marketing and HR take on which feels strange for a defense company. They are trying to make it more modern like a Google, Apple workplace, but it just feels wrong to be honest.
