    I worked at AER full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are on the right project, this is a great place to develop weather software. You will learn weather and aerospace science - that is also their usual background. Benefits are fairly good.

    Cons

    Science is on the bleeding edge, but software technology is definitely not. Long-term projects are rarely, if ever, refactored for newer technology. Financial IT is also obsolete (paper time sheets, expenses and purchasing).

    There is a silo mentality, with not much opportunity to transfer projects. Few opportunities for more senior developers from outside. Bonus is uncompetitive within the SW industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in more up to date employee-facing systems. Emailing an Excel doesn't count! Take steps to make transfer between groups more usual and easy - this will broaden skills and avoid a cycle of layoff in one group - hire in another.
