A company providing communication products for US and allied armed forces
Senior Systems Integration Engineer (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – September 17, 2013
A day of work is typically working with different business groups across the company (engineering, management, support) to provide the most robust set of capabilities to our armed forces. My peers and co-workers are typically either from a software/hardware engineering discipline or prior military who operate as our support staff. Typically the hardest part of the job is inefficiencies in leadership, processes, and government acquisition but the most enjoyable is seeing your product out in real-world environments supporting our troops to help them do their mission to the best of their abilities
Workplace is mostly relaxed and informal, pressure to perform is only applied when deadlines are approaching. Time management is oriented toward results rather than time on the clock ( core hours must be worked but outside of that, employees are usually allowed to set their own work hours).
Free beverages and seasonal fruit
Contract Employees may be left out of company perks.
