PREFER NOT DO DISCLOSE (Current Employee) –  El Segundo, CAJanuary 17, 2018
This could be a decent company if management would listen to their employees. The CEO is out of touch with the employees. You are rewarded for being loyal to the company and penalized if you think outside the box or speak up on how things should and could change for the better. Set in their ways!
Pros
Good people work here
Cons
Bad managers in charge of good people

Work experience varies according to your job, department and manager
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COSeptember 24, 2017
Although a potentially great company with very good benefits, the infrastructure did not match company growth. IT, Accounting, HR, Admin and Security depts were not valued by corporate. (Less than) average monetary compensations for these depts. Too many shortcuts and lack of updated equipment and software made everyday functions a struggle. With no cross training, departments would come to a stand still when one person was absent. 9-10 hour days were typical. Hopefully, this is changing. I learned the value of my time and energy!
Pros
Working with a majority of hard working, dedicated patriots with a great mission
Cons
Being a bottom dweller

Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  El Segundo, CAFebruary 7, 2017
Working a 9 to 5 internship at LinQuest gave me a good sense of job security and a great environment to work in. As a college intern, I felt the pay was fair and absolutely worth it.

Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMay 20, 2015
Good company for satellite Systems Engineering. Unfortunately there is an obsession with odd mandatory rules such as reporting four hour days, backups of computers, and training. If you don't follow the rules, your manager's managers will get notified...

Benefits are getting worse every year

company that hires in anticipation of large contract wins
Corporate Engineer (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CASeptember 15, 2014
Good work environment but lots of RIFs due to fully hiring for a project and then forced to let those folks go -- resulting in layoffs of very talented people who have had their program cancelled or the win goes to a competitor.
Pros
good work environment, clear goals for each major development
Cons
inappropriate hiring practices, hiring way too many people before contract is secured

Counterproductive management.
Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Los AngelesApril 8, 2014
The company has the potential to be a good place to work, however, the culture there breeds contempt because of the bigotry of certain members of upper management. Once they decide they want you out, they won't miss an opportunity to stoop to all new lows to sabotage you and push you out. They are a nightmare. If you got out, consider yourself lucky... and don't look back.
Pros
None
Cons
Bigotry laddered environment.

Wideband Satellite Communications Specialist (Former Employee) –  Ft Meade; Hanover, MDMarch 17, 2014
The work environment is based on individually paced and developed inputs to a closely coordinated team. Project development and progress is based on adhoc and scheduled collaboration between team members.
Project progress is tracked in high level brieffings developed in a collabratory effort that has to reflect the scope of team member perspectives and project objectives.
Pros
Cooperative, liberal and understanding management.
Cons
Work availability depends on government assigned contracts.
