    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!!

    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.

    The Mercury vision is phenomenal and I am proud to say I work for them and the culture is unlike many companies in the same sector. To be able to design and build products that protect our great nation and allies is quite an honor.

    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.

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

    Pros

    The management team has stressed an open door policy and I believe that is a true statement. The company appears to be moving quickly and aggressively to continue to grow, to meet Wall Street expectations but more importantly to continue to foster employee interest and motivation to grow as well. Our recent acquisition by Mercury brought a certain amount of apprehension to many people. However, corporate has been working very hard to make the transition as painless as possible and have made it a point to communicate our path forward. Management's drive is to make Mercury a superior place to work by making their employees excited about what they do. We are changing together to make Mercury a wonderful place to work. Employees across all sites have been outstanding to work with each day. I am very impressed and motivated to drive us past any competition in the market. Its an exciting place to work. Highly recommend it to all who want to learn quickly and be involved with other motivated people.

    Cons

    More emphasis should be made on continual education for all. This could be done either through further formal education or employees teaching employees. This fosters growth. Management is open to this. We should make it happen!

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    The company offers good salary, benefits and STOCK OPTIONS. This allows you to make more money and be more interested in helping the company grow. Management is fair and they pay attention to your concerns and try their best to come up with a solution. They don't micromanage everyday but they let your work results speak for themselves. All the employees are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Some of the processes could be improved to be more efficient in getting things done in time

    Pros

    Mercury does many things to support employee satisfaction and growth. They seem to be proud of creating a great place to work.

    Cons

    Have yet to find any major cons. As with anything else in life, you get out what you put in.

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you are doing to grow a strong, healthy, and happy company. With managing other locations, it can be difficult to keep everyone aligned. You seem to be making a great effort to do so.
