    Pros

    The executive leadership is incredible, and the working environment is great.

    Cons

    The company is evolving, but it could move faster in certain areas to operate more competitively, not to say it's needed but it would be a long-term benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Adapt to modern trends a bit faster.

    Pros

    Mercury is executing against a unique Next Generation Business Model. No one else in Defense or Aerospace is doing this. Combining driving innovation while investing our own R&D money on behalf of our customers, driving open systems architectures, and leveraging our industry leading security solutions.

    Cons

    All of this requires top talent. The company continues to drive to bring in the best and brightest engineering and other talent in all areas needed to support the business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep ahead of the curve in talent acquisition.

    So far from what I've seen since acquiring us, they seem to really care about our needs and they follow through them. Understanding it takes time, but they make it happen!!

    The MRP system (ORACLE) needs some improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work on making Mercury Systems an excellent company everyday!!

    Pros

    Mercury is definitely on the up and up. Worked here for a while now and I must say that the working people genuinely seem to care about each other and are always trying to help each other out. Very good place to work.

    Cons

    Everyone is running at full speed all the time. If you don't like a fast paced environment, not sure what to tell you.

    Pros

    Great Work, Great People, Great Capabilities

    Cons

    Too many meetings; West Coast groups schedule meetings for late evening on East Coast, East Coast groups schedule meetings for early morning on West Coast. The meetings are rarely if ever on time and few have stated goals or agenda. Even worse most do not result in actionable information!

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to integrate the divisions. Think about the workload and impact on people working across multiple divisions.
