    Pros

    The work that we do goes to saving lives and other important things. The people are nice to work with for the most part.

    Cons

    It seems lately that the only thing that the management wants to do it squeeze margins and save money. This is fine, but when it is your ONLY goal, this is not very positive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying ONLY about your bonuses, and outsourcing AMERICAN JOBS.

    Pros

    Stable workplace with rewarding work that really helps people. Very moving success stories and a lot of good people to work with. Interact with a lot of diverse groups and ahve the ability to work in a variety of areas.

    Cons

    A very large company with big company problems. Sometimes it's hard to get moving on certain projects becasue of politics. Seems interested in fostering career growth, but then takes no action to prove that they actually are interested versus just telling you what you want to hear. Senior management seems distant at times and are too busy to interact directly, instead they rely on top down and bottom up communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you really are interested in help your employees along their career, then give your managers the ability to add or modify positions that would keep people on their paths and help them stay motivated and loyal rather than tightening the budget so tight that changind head counts are nearly impossible. Also, change the compensation plans away from an average and let higher ranked employees get better increases without affecting anyone else.

    Pros

    Good group of engineers to work with. Collaborative and supportive, relaxed, productive work environment. Lots of interesting products to work on. Every aspect of development located in one area so you are able to work with everyone locally involved in product development.

    Cons

    Could manage projects better and more effectively. Try to complete multiple products at the same time so competing demands aren't coordinated as well as they could be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on better coordination of product development and improve efficiency with realistic product introduction timelines.

    Pros

    Non-management employees are usually genuine regarding their concern about the customer and the products they produce. They are hard workers that are easy to work with regarding any type of issue.Non-management employees are usually genuine regarding their concern about the customer and the products they produce. They are hard workers that are easy to work with regarding any type of issue.

    Cons

    Management preaches ethics and code of conduct but, fails to follow them. The lower level employees are always to blame.

    Management is not engaged with staffing and product issues.

    The HR department very seldom sides with the lower level employee. Regardless of the evidence to support the employees claim.

    Favoritism runs repent.

    Out date systems too quickly and easily identify issues regarding products.

    This is just a few things. There are really too many to list.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR
    Start supporting the lower level employees and hold all levels of management accountable.

    Management
    Practice what you preach.
    Listen to your employees.
    Start doing the right thing for your customers, employees and share holder.
