Derek F. Testimonial Portrait
The State College office has the feel of a small company with the benefits of a large one. We are well connected to many larger RTX offices for sharing work and resources. The small company feel means you can experience as many phases of development as you'll likely be working on a small team. We do such vitally important work and to know your contributing to it is very motivating!

There is an active Employee Volunteer Organization (EVO) that plans events for all employees; such as picnics, holiday parties, potlucks and a snack stand. EVO additionally organizes work events outside of the office for employees and their families. The State College area overall is very family friendly and safe, as well as offering a great public school system.
