A good company to work for. This is a fast growing and well diversified and well placed upcoming division of the parent Company QinetiQ UK - which is a well proven and made up of long established ex government Technology, Science and Research Organisation. Has meant a good work experience with challenging and interesting projects for me.


Interesting and different sometimes


Depends on defence contracts

Upper Management don't care about employees.

Working for a defence contractor can be challenging due to bureaucratic red tape, ethical dilemmas, and sometimes questionable practices, which may overshadow the noble goal of national security.

No strategy, no direction, no future

Was formed when 3 local companies bought out. Unfortunately the culture and capability of the worst of the three seems to have prevailed. Not been helped by current leadership recruited as mates of CEO as opposed for ability. All the capable and highly skilled employees have left or been terminated. Those left especially senior technical are largely out of touch and not employable elsewhere. As a CPEng very disappointed with technical management and leadership and complete lack of innovation. Having moved on now work alongside some under Defence MSP construct and this has only reinforced how bad they are. People Management quite active on social media but appalling in reality.

Customer focussed not employee focussed

Very little room for advancement as the company is top heavy consisting of mates of mates. Education opportunities lacking due to funds not available depending on who you know and what job you are performing. Takes months to get approvals for courses. Contractors are placed in areas that don't suit the skills. Filling holes that customers have identified without analysing the requirements.
