    Good career springboard, but you'll eventually land in quicksand

    Pros

    Great for early careers when you want to have exposure to various functional areas; if you're able to do rotations you can acquire a robust set of skills. Lateral moves are much easier and if you're willing to re-locate you can progress nicely and have a long career here. Schedule options such as Flex 40 and 9/80 can add to work/life balance but are dependent on your business unit.

    Cons

    Progression is based on who you know, not what you know or true merit - many are under leveled due to inadequate funding on programs to support a higher level. Resources are only provided to the more successful and lucrative programs. The company is more geared towards engineers/tech folks and more functional workers may need to go outside to progress. If you have advanced degrees, not much funding is provided for additional training/certification unless required by the customer. Use of comp time varies from program to program - you can work 60-80 hr weeks and get nothing for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a way to provide some basic benefits on different programs. It's amazing how an employee's perspective of the company can drastically shift with each program and in the different business areas. With such a large company there has to be a better way of determining which formulas work and which don't. Employees do not believe the LM Voice survey or any other efforts sincerely wish to change the culture and as individual contributor workloads increase with no tangible benefits, morale and loyalty to the corporation will decrease.
