Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – Centreville, VA – January 15, 2018
Grateful to have been given the opportunity to work here as my first job. Being a not-for-profit organization, it allowed employees to find what they are best at & excel further in that path. The atmosphere with other employees makes the workplace more enjoyable.
Employee (Former Employee) – DMV – August 12, 2018
Nothing fun, glad I left for better working conditions and healthier environment that promotes growth and learning. I would not recommend unless your on a good team with good manager. If you want your skills to deteriorate and waste away. Bunch of old men/farts making decisions and making all the money and your left with the scraps.

Support Professional (Current Employee) – Crystal City, VA – March 26, 2018
Riverside Research supports Research and Development for the sake of pure research, as well as in support of the Department of Defense. Because of this research focus, the corporate culture is one of openness, inclusion, innovation, and progress. It's truly an exciting place to work.
Research Scientist (Current Employee) – Beavercreek, OH – March 25, 2018
Great work culture if you are in the right area (directorate). Work weeks are mostly 40 hours, but go up around crunch-time. This is expected in a research environment. Management genuinely cares. I enjoy the research that I am doing and the people I work with, including my boss. I just wish it wasn't in Dayton.
Dev (Former Employee) – Virginia – November 21, 2017
If work is all you want to do with your life and not have a life this is the perfect place. They expect you to work long hours and if you don't they will write you up. The manager is not on your side. Work priorities change weekly. If you like disorganized leaders and cowboy coders that rush code checkins.
Any typical day at work would be to accomplish any assigned task meeting the customer's satisfaction and or mission need. I expect management to take care of the majority of office functions allowing me to perform the mission activities. I work well with co-workers or completely solo. The hardest part of any job is to perform without having a clear direction from management of what their expectations are. The most enjoyable part of any job is the satisfaction knowing you performed well and met the customers needs.
Intern (Former Employee) – Beavercreek, OH – April 5, 2015
Before starting my internship I was aware that there was no guarantee of a permanent position. The job environment was very nice and relaxed. Management was very effective and encouraged further education in area of study. The only downside is that they will invest in interns but not really consider hiring them as a permanent employee however they are very large and very well respected and will look great on a resume.
Free drinks, Work Enviroment, Nice hours, Nice benefits
You show up to work, do your job to your best ability and the company takes care of you. I was told at the beginning of my 1 year contract that they would be able to find another position for me at the end of this one...unfortunately they were unable too.
