    Approves of CEO

    I worked at OPNET full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of smart people there and there is a a lot of very technical and challenging work.

    Cons

    They are a company that hasn't seemed to keep up with the times. They haven't adapted to new software processes, new languages, new SCM tools, or anything in the world of software development. They also are too slow to let go of underperforming engineers.

    Advice to Management

    The cons I listed pretty much translate directly into advice.

    there is a good life/work balance

    the only way that someone advances in the hierarchy is mostly the number of years that he/she is with OPNET.
