Computer Engineer

"I've worked at APL for 3+ years. Great place to work overall, especially if you have a family and are seeking a long-term employer. However, the process by which one might move up wasn't ever clear to me, and there are a multitude of companies out there that will likely pay you more than APL for your skillset. Great emphasis on education though, and perfect for someone coming out of school with a BS (APL will pay for your entire MS through the JHU part-time program)."

"I've been with APL since 1999. I think that the company benefits are second to none and they will try to find work if things get thin. I did feel like I was treated as if I had little to no experience when I had already had over 10 years of experience."
