Make attempts to be extroverted and you'll be fine
Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – January 6, 2019
Focus on reputation as opposed to contribution. People take advantage of workload with complaining rights. If you aren't okay with having to take advantage of culpability to the degree that you contribute to the team to sustain your position this may not be the best place for you. Often at times it was clear that blame and clap backs weighed more than merit or fact. I'm not perfect and I do have a tendency to read too much into behavior; however, I'm 94% sure this is not the first time something like this has been said, I would be very surprised if it hasn't or if I was the only one who felt/thought this way.
They won't kill you with work. They pay well. Communication is typically easy with management. Their culture does manifest a caring for employees. Good time off. The toxic part of the culture (all companies have it) is not hidden.
Project Scheduler Analyst (Former Employee) – El Segundo, CA – January 1, 2019
Some REALLY poor management in place. No direction. There are people who will stab you in the back and not think twice. Too much contract and permanent employee disfunction. Some of the people consider them selves smart/value added but they are not.
Many times the overall direction is changed on a dime. Plus many people are uncooperative in nature. Management does not try to fix the problem either.
Nice people on the whole and fair pay
Backstabbers, bad management if many places, contract/perm employee disfunction
Power Plant Mechanic/Supervisor/Consultant (Current Employee) – Aurora, CO – July 10, 2018
This company has put me in the position to move forward with a security clearance and clearance type jobs. The company is family based and works closely with every employee to ensure good life style and customer satisfaction. (Government Contractor
PREFER NOT DO DISCLOSE (Current Employee) – El Segundo, CA – January 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!
Work experience varies according to your job, department and manager
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – September 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!
Working with a majority of hard working, dedicated patriots with a great mission
Administrative (Former Employee) – Colorado Spgs, CO – August 2, 2017
Management and directors don't really care to recognize the true hard workers at the bottom of the totem pole or the managers who take the credit as long as they, themselves, look good to the CEO and make the big bucks. One of the most unfair places I have ever worked.
now you can purchase more time off
yearly increases are extremely minimal except for managers and above.
Enjoyed most of the people I worked with. That's what I will miss most.
Administration (Former Employee) – Colorado – June 18, 2017
Too much lieing, cheating, back stabbing, and butt kissing goes on at this company among the managers. They only look after themselves so don't ever expect them to back you up even when they know it would be the right thing to do. Shame on those people!
Descent benefits but at a high price
You will get far only if you are willing to kiss alot of managers' butts.
Principal Cyber Security Engineer (Current Employee) – Aurora, CO – May 31, 2017
A typical day includes review of policies, processes, and procedures and recommendations of how to move the Cyber Security department forward. The company is a great company to work for upper management is accommodating and supportive.
I found the job security and advancement decent here. However, the management and employee benefits are very bad! If your going to work here, make sure you get a good rate coming in the door. The company typically gives a maximum of 1-2% annual raise. Even with exceptional performance.
Also, don't expect to be off most government holidays. 10 paid holidays per year max. Also your PTO accrual is very minimum, about 2 hours a pay period. You also must work a minimum of 4 hours each business day... So, getting time off work to pickup the kids, is near impossible. Additionally, you won't get paid any straight time after working 40 hours a week. Your annual salary is the maximum you'll receive. So again, prepare for that when accepting an offer.
Program Manager / Principle Engineer (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – March 1, 2017
This is an excellent company that mostly attracts those with significant experience and ability to step into any major company and solve difficult problems. The management was excellent and did everything in their power to help us succeed.
Principal Cyber Security Engineer (Current Employee) – Aurora, CO – March 9, 2016
I do not work directly with the company in Colorado Springs. I am an employee that works on a contract that requires me to be in a different city. From all of the emails and monthly fliers it appears to be a wonderful company to work for, and great people to work with.
Change Manager/Systems Integrator (Current Employee) – El Segundo CA – July 16, 2015
LinQuest is a great place to work and the people and projects are challenging and rewarding. The company's Commitment to the job and doing the right thing is a key reason why I have worked at LinQuest so long.
Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 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...
company that hires in anticipation of large contract wins
Corporate Engineer (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 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.
good work environment, clear goals for each major development
inappropriate hiring practices, hiring way too many people before contract is secured
