      Pros

      Some excellent people to work with. Supportive manager. Exciting projects and close interaction with suppliers and customers. Business is growing well.

      Cons

      Bonus dependent on performance of whole company and salary below market. Forced return to office after Covid. More support for new starters and workload inconsistent with timesheets needing to be filled with ‘productive’ work. Working for government means a lot of proccess. No team socializing. Promotions are not easy to get.

      Thank you for your review and the interesting points that you've raised. QinetiQ has adopted a hybrid working policy (where geographical physical restrictions allow) so it would be worth speaking with your TL, GL or HR representative about this. We do appreciate that workloads can be inconsistent due to the nature of our clients' demands. Your TL and Resource Manager will be able to assist you with this.

      Many thanks for taking time out to leave such a positive review. QinetiQ is on a recruitment drive to bring people into the business in areas where there's a skills shortage so this should ease your workload.
