Very well defined project management practices.
Sr. Program Manager (Former Employee), Austin, TXSeptember 9, 2014
Job requirements were task based, with specific profit, delivery and customer satisfaction requirement.

I had opportunity to manage projects with many different technology requirements, interface with customers on daily basis.

Management was supportive, provided tools needed to get the job completed.

Coworkers were professional and skilled at hardware – more... and software engineering.

The hardest and most enjoyable part of the job was managing resources so they were used most efficiently across multiple projects. – less

Shady place to work "Beware"
Software Engineer intern (Former Employee), Germantown, MDJuly 30, 2014
Pros: reasonable lunch breaks
Cons: everything about this place sucks
This company is a joke (well, at least at this location). First of all, their office stinks because there are dogs all over the place "yes dogs in the office all day". If don't like dogs (or dogs jumping on you at work with an excess of drooling all over your clothes and your belongings, then keep moving). They are a very small team but cannot understand – more... and work in harmony another (always loud arguments and disagreements between the manager and his employees). Everyone watches his back there. The manager is very unprofessional and thinks he is on top of the world (very poor management skills). He talks to employees like his own dogs and has no patience for whatsoever. One thing for sure, if you work there you will have to interact with him almost everyday. If you're looking to get into a stressful and unprofessional work environment go ahead and take a chance. – less

Great pay, but layoffs are always close by
Quality Assurance Specialist (Current Employee), Wichita KSJuly 22, 2014
Pros: great pay
Cons: knee jerk managment
You'll make good money with good benefits. Management like to express how much they enjoy jetting around the world while you sit in the same factory day in and out. Layoffs happen, however the company does make an attempt to move people within business units if possible. All in all its a good place to be.

Stay away if you value your career
Engineering (Current Employee), Hunt Valley, MDMarch 3, 2014
Pros: hunt valley is adecent area
Cons: everything
Management is changing hands faster than they deal cards in Vegas. Co-workers are a toss up, some good some bad as expected anywhere. No room for advancement, improvement or outside ideas. If you don't want to drink the kool-aid you wont fit in.

I would honestly recommend a job at wal-mart before coming here, and yes I've worked for wal-mart in college.
