Pros

The work is interesting from a technical point of view. The work force is excellent. Lots of PhDs running around that you can learn a lot from.

Cons

The company is severely over-managed. It seems like there is one VP and a couple directors for every worker bee. The space systems has been in trouble since Obama took office and turned NASA upside down. ATK lost much of it's space business. All this results in a very political and depressing atmosphere.

Advice to Management

Fire most of the upper management.

    Pros

    The pride in our workmanship was great. The wages were great and it was close by home. Benefits were pretty cheap and there was always overtime.Lots of cross training if you wanted to learn a new cell. Lots of great wildlife on plant, saw deer everyday.

    Cons

    Management and wage roll were always seeing each other as the enemy. One never trusted the other so there was always constant stress.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe see what is really bugging some one deep down when they are having problems on the job and offer them help if you can. Sometimes just caring about someone goes a long ways.
