"I worked for QinetiQ North America for 2 years and thoroughly enjoyed my experience with them. The job was exciting and challenging. The people were wonderful, friendly and always willing to help when they could."

"I've worked at QinetiQ North America for several years, the engineers are second to none, but the management is poor. There is no leadership, no direction and they continue to lose talent to other companies because they refuse to take care of their employees. Attrition over the last year is easily in the 25% range."
