    Great place to work... not so much for being a graduate

    Nov 28, 2020 - Systems Engineer in Glasgow, Scotland, Scotland
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Decent pay with plenty of options to move from interesting project to project and job to job. Flexible working times and decent company benefits.

    Cons

    The graduate scheme is a vapid and vacuous shell of a programme. Line managers with no training are expected to take time out of their day to "teach" you, but as all hours have to be booked and there's no money made available for training, there's no time for them to help. The graduate scheme is a serious of annoying hoops for you to jump through without any clear direction and aren't designed to improve your skills at all. It's a fairly relaxed place to work but I wouldn't recommend to graduates.

    good and bad

    Dec 17, 2020 - Systems Engineer in Bedford, MA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The actual company is good to its staff. Working on the airforce base is restricted to 6am to 6pm and weekdays only. So no "surprise" overtime.

    Cons

    Work was on an airforce base, and military and civilian gov workers can be abusive. Worse, if they're having a bad day, or skittish about defense budget cuts, your job can be "defunded" at the drop of a hat.
