The managers were looking for a candidate to sent to DC to work on a 'high visibility' black proposal and to be software lead on the project(eventually). The proposal in DC would take 2-3 months(of long stressful days). It'd be kind of cool to work on a black project, but probably not cool enough to offset the suffering. The project is very important to the raytheon upper management and so the candidate would have lots of 'suits' looking over their shoulder and such. Sounded like the project would eventually be implemented at MDC, which would also be bad for me.
Ah, well, maybe next time.
