    Incredibly talented engineering team that is passionate about their work. Programs provide opportunity for technical growth by presenting real-world challenges that need Mercury solutions. Capabilities and strengths of different sites provide good collaboration opportunities. Mercury is a growing company with the right focus!

    Cons

    Integration of multiple sites is highly beneficial, but also takes significant time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue promoting the vision and strategically acquiring security businesses that fit that vision.

    Mercury has lots of great people to work with, friendly yet motivated to succeed. Company is great and cares for employees, Xmas parties, vtines gifts, etc. Growing company with a lot to look forward too. Great leadership!

    Lots of acquisitions can be challenging for the new employees. More hands on training with tools and processes would be beneficial.

    There's nothing better than to work for a growing company, stay focused on working smarter not harder. Continue to refine business processes and training for employees.

    Pros

    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!!

    Cons

    The MRP system (ORACLE) needs some improvements.

    Advice to Management

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

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

    Pros

    I am fairly new to Mercury but have been in the industry for many years. My roles have been in Sales and because of that I have visited many companies and listened to their views of the market. Some companies only have a product and have no real chance of growth. Few companies have a concrete plan for how they intend to grow. Fewer companies have a plan and the leadership talent to execute. Even more rare do you see a company with this level of leadership coupled with incredible technical innovation. Mercury has the strategic plan coupled the talent to execute and unmatched technical prowess.
    Everywhere I turn I am learning about new capabilities or innovation that is superior to what I've experienced in the market. This company will continue to grow and I feel fortunate to be part of it.
    There is incredible confidence in CEO and where he is taking this company.

    Cons

    It can be unbelievably cold in MA!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the search for new technology and new talent. Your people are behind you.

    I have been working at Mercury Systems full-time

    Pros

    There are over 75 current openings nationwide. Employees are getting referral bonuses from $500.00 - $3000.00 for someone who is hired. Benefits include a matching 401k and Employee Stock Purchase Plan that are doing very well and bonuses twice a year. Quarterly reviews and great employee engagement team.

    Cons

    Not enough qualified candidates applying to positions. Only 2 recruiters for entire company could slow down the process.

    Advice to Management

    Form a talent acquisition department. Get an automated recruiting tool that is more user friendly for everyone.

    Pros

    I came to Mercury with the acquisition from Microsemi and am extremely pleased with Mercury's market & customer focus. Leadership clearly articulates the direction and stays true to words with action to bring the greatest possible value to the market and warfighter.

    Cons

    No cons identified so far. Hard but rewarding work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue making investments in Innovation that Matters to create value and drive contribution to the marketplace. We should never forget who our REAL end customer is.

    I have been working at Mercury Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been with the company about 8 months through acquisition, but 20+ years total with the same group of people. The company culture is great, work environment is very positive and the people I work with are outstanding. The company actually thinks about the employees and doesn't make me feel like a number within the company. One outstanding place to work.

    Cons

    I know I should give some constructive criticism, but nothing comes to mind.

    Advice to Management

    Make your rounds to all of the divisions once a year. Lets put a name to a face.

    Pros

    I have been with Mercury for 10 years and one of the things I appreciate about Mercury is how the organization invests in my personal and professional development. Mercury helped me with tuition assistance to advance my education. Mercury regularly offers professional training provided by the foremost authorities in their fields. Mercury provides on-line training sessions on many subjects. Thanks Mercury management for investing in me!

    Cons

    Nothing to add at this time

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in employee development. Thank you.
