    I worked at Radiance Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people you work with are great.

    Cons

    Upper management will use and abuse you. When they terminate people they have them work a full day and then let them go due to “performance” reasons. This is consistent across the board with this company even if that person worked hard and scored high on performance reviews. This also makes it hard for the employee to collect unemployment (which is why they do it this way).

    Advice to Management

    Respect everyone.

    I worked at Radiance Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits were above average.

    Cons

    The nepotism is absolutely astounding. CEO’s sons and daughters work in high level positions. Management only cares about securing the next contract. Cares nothing of the current contract. Really uninterested about the career path of their employees. No opportunities for growth or learning. Encouraged to NOT learn about new technologies as what’s the point.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees and stop worrying so much about the sacred ESOP

    I have been working at Radiance Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay was comparable to other intel jobs in the area, but the benefits were great. Specifically the 401K drop each year.

    Cons

    They lost the contract we were on.

  7. "Good easy job but expect no growth or interest in retaining talent"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I worked at Radiance Technologies

    Pros

    Great benefits. Good VP. Super easy job. Feel free to go to school online while you are at work, we had that much time.

    Cons

    Job was so easy we were basically stealing taxpayer money for doing very little, but this is contracting. Lower management worst I’ve been a part of in 18 years in the workforce, essentially have no skills other than friendships with higher managers. Numerous high performers have gone on to executive levels at other organizations yet could not get promoted to basic levels in the company. So sad if I were the... business owner that they let high performers go and keep people in leadership roles that are clueless. But it works, since government standards are so low.

    Advice to Management

    None. They don’t care, the money flows freely from the government so why care.

    I have been working at Radiance Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits (health insurance) Small company if you like that

    Cons

    Don't care about employees unless you are management or one going into management. No progression path for engineer(if you want a promotion you will NOT get one here) Really think of all employees as expendable and replaceable unless you have something special on your resume they want to use to get contracts Let top talent leave because they have no idea what you do don't care what you do, (just shut up do work... go away) Management has no idea what you are doing don't check on anything don't care just want work done. They have horrible managers. Want you to choose work over family. They will get angry and give no raises and bad reviews if you do choose your family. Want you to work on your own time for no pay. Again will get angry if you don't and no raises and bad reviews. Allow some to get away with doing nothing. Why even have a purchaser if they don't do anything except swipe a credit card a child could do that.

    Advice to Management

    Give engineers a path of progression and promotion!!! Care about your workers not just the management team Good employees are hard to come by get your head out of the sand and learn that you have some and have lost some really good one, and you are going to loose more
