Business Customer Relationship Liaison II (Current Employee), McKinney, TXJune 21, 2015
Pros: Flexible work hours, life work balance, good compensation
Cons: Siloed business units, older workforce and harder to advance
Company management is nice and personable, business is nice for people wanting a work life balance. Flexible schedules are nice, and compensation is good for the work. Company downsizing does happen, but they try to maintain as many people as possible to fit business needs. They have a few siloed business units that need some work to make it truly one company.

Certified Electronics Maintenance Technition (Current Employee), Fort Bliss, TXJune 19, 2015
My typical work day starts with morning safety and job tasks for the day, week, and month. I'm always learning new job task dealing with maintenance and computer task dealing with patriot missile. My management is very open to any concerns that I have. My co-workers are very friendly and if they have more knowledge they are more than willing to teach it. the hardest part of my job is when I'm task to TDY and leave my family. The most enjoyable part of my job is Being able to TDY places I've never been to.

Software Engineering Intern (Current Employee), San Diego, CaJune 18, 2015
Spent a year as an intern training to become an embedded systems engineer. Established a very strong understanding of limited memory requirements and enjoy working with hardware. I knew what I wanted to do before I started working for them but they only re-enforced my curiosity and drive to learn.

I really enjoyed my time there and learned a lot from the team that I worked with.
Field Service Representative (Former Employee), Huntsville, AlabamaJune 15, 2015
A typical day was maintaining the RAID Towers. Our job were to repair any damage cables, the structor of the tower, do upgrades the safety system and equipments. I had 3to 4 weeks of training in the class room and hands on of setting up a 80 and 109 feet towers. The training prepared me to setup a surveillance camera on top of the tower that could rotate 360 degrees of operation. My team was great, and the hardest part if any might be working in the elements. The best part was learning something totally new to me.

Productive and fun place to work with great co-workers
Accounting Specialist (Current Employee), Dulles, VAJune 15, 2015
Pros: 9/80 work schedule is available, plus there is a 2 week Christmas (Holiday) Break
Cons: Several lay offs.
Recently a typical day at work for me usually involves billing different types of invoices such as Time and Material, Fixed Priced and Cost Plus. Performed account reconcilations and analysis of unbilled receivables and revenue.
I have learned to interact with different levels of leadership and a vast array of customers and a diverse group of co-workers.
The hardest part of the job usually involves system issues which can create delays in timetables or make it getting tasks accomplised in the allotted time frame.
The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new things and lively discussions with my co-workers.

Consulting Engineer (Former Employee), Bedford, MAJune 4, 2015
Pros: It was truly a great place to work.
Cons: It was difficult to find solutions; so, we got use to creating them.
This is where I received my first job experience as a Functional Test Engineer. The development techniques we used were primitive by today's standards; but, they were highly effective. Back then, we used IBM punch cards to generate the test code that we used, had the test information translated to reel-to-reel tapes, then fed the test instructions into 'home-grown' testers that we developed at Raytheon for the purpose of functionally testing the product components and assemblies. It was excellent work. This was my first contract job assignment. I truly enjoyed it a lot.
