Long term employee of FMC / United Defense / BAE Systems in Santa Clara

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

ProsOver the years the company was a great place and a place where young engineers could learn. Work can be very interesting.

ConsOver the last 3+ years they have laid off far too many of the most experienced and competent people. Now they plan to do more of the same in order to reduce rates. Our customers are losing confidence in us and our commitment to them. The experience and expertise of employees is no longer respected. Those who have been the most successful and therefore promoted now find their jobs at risk. Those who have not been promoted are safer.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink before you loose all of your expertise! It may be close to too late now. You can only manage by the bottom line for a few more years before you destroy all of our capabilities.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
