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

management blinded by $
Administrative (Former Employee) –  Colorado Spgs, COAugust 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.
Pros
now you can purchase more time off
Cons
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) –  ColoradoJune 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!
Pros
Descent benefits but at a high price
Cons
You will get far only if you are willing to kiss alot of managers' butts.

Benefits and Management are non-existant
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Beavercreek, OHMarch 28, 2017
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.
Pros
Job Security
Cons
Salary, Benefits

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.

Positive Company to work for
Principal Cyber Security Engineer (Current Employee) –  Aurora, COMarch 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.
Pros
monthly meetings
Cons
Too far away from the home base

Depends on Project
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.
