Small company of approximately 150 people. Has it's pros and cons. Pros: They are growing their portfolio and customer base. With it, they are growing staff, process, policies, and the organizational structure. There is a lot of work that is very challenging and will help you grow an array of skills if you are ready to roll up your sleeves and dive in. You have the opportunity to wear many hats, and can constantly take on new roles or work outside of your original function. There is usually no shortage of opportunity. Like all defense contractors, they do have their ups and downs -- and the downs can be pretty rough for a few months, but they always pick back up. Cons: The management at the highest levels of SEG is incredibly inexperienced with change/culture management. They have a very small company mindset, and lack the skills necessary to transition the company from bootstrap to product-house. Their leadership can be confusing, poorly communicated, opaque, and at worst -- ineffective or slow to react. Many concerns that bubble up are left to fester and become crisis that require reactive responses that are usually too little, or too late. Many of them could have easily been avoided and help level out the work load for lower level staff to avoid firedrills. SEG leadership tends to have weak insight into their staff/department problems and root causes and therefore are not leading the cultural and organizational changes required to help SEG thrive. SEG has the potential to be great one day, but currently they are squeezing the bottom and middle staff for everything - more...
Intelligent, highly-motivated individuals do not seem to last here. During the past year, turnover seems to have been in the neighborhood of 25%. We just lost a few people, and we're about to lose a few more. People are pleasant to work with, but upper management seems to lack clear direction and the ability to manage. I find it deeply discouraging to try and work here.

They have a lot of awesome people who work there and really care about each other. What is great about the company is the opportunity to grow and try new things. With so many new ideas all the time, and more contracts than staff, you'll never be without work. Unfortunately, senior leadership doesn't seem to know how to focus, lead, guard their staff, provide a technical or company vision or mission that motivates and excites the team. If leadership would spend less time trying to get more contracts, and more time training their staff the job would be much more enjoyable.
