Pros

It's great to work on projects that are putting astronauts into space and helping keep our country safe and free. Work/life balance is excellent and benefits are generous.

Cons

Need to focus more on employee development, particularly high-potentials. Also, the company (and aerospace industry) is lagging in embracing technologies that will make them more efficient. For example only senior managers are given Blackberries. The mobile workforce is not able to work very effectively.

Advice to Management

Invest in technology improvements, embrace enterprise 2.0, develop your people, and diversify your portfolio so that you are not so dependent on the whims of government.

    Pros

    ATK has great benefits, great education reimbursement, and good opportunities to excel at your job.

    Cons

    Senior management hasn't figured out how to do a matrix organization. The company has reorg'd 3 times last 2 years but still hasn't figured out how to matrix the engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to become a matrix organization.
