Good Compensation / Frustrating Work Culture
Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – Nashua, NH – April 27, 2016
If you have never worked in Defense, you may find the work culture and environment very frustrating. You will find that the management is preoccupied with low level book keeping (ensuring task codes are opened / closed on time, making sure that hours are used up before the task code expires) instead of ensuring work is being completed in an efficient manner, providing technical leadership / vision, or communicating important changes to the team. You will find that there is an abundance of middle-management, many of whom do not have the leadership skills or technical competence to lead with any efficacy.
On the other hand, if you are less concerned with progressing your career and are mainly looking for a stable place to work, where the pay is good, and the benefits (401k match, medical, vacation) are good, then this could be a match for you.
