Enjoyable and varied work in technology fields, lots of negativity amongst staff.

Senior Scientist (Former Employee)
Great Malvern, England (UK)

I worked at QinetiQ

ProsLarge diversity of technical roles available.
Intelligent, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly technical staff.
Out of the rat race (Malvern site).

ConsLack of internal investment.
Seemingly endless company contraction.
Short-sighted cost savings.
Extreme negativity amongst technical staff.
Senior management and many senior technical staff seem to have conflicting ideas.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou can't keep all staff on profit making projects at all times. QinetiQ's strength is its diversity of capabilities. Making an underutilised capability redundant means QinetiQ loses that capability. This reduces its diversity, making it weaker, less able to attack problems it could previously tackle. I saw this happen time and again.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
