One of the better major defense contractors, but ultimately constrained by its size

Pros

The company was strongly committed to ethical behavior, and had interesting work. Benefits were very average for this size defense contractor.

Cons

Because they use salary bands based on years of experience and aren't eager to make exceptions, compensation for talented individuals will never match what they can make in smaller organizations. Employees in management positions (including low-level management positions such as team leads) were not paid for time spent doing managerial functions such as performance evaluations for subordinates.

    Pros

    Career progression. They really take good care of their deployers. They're there for you when you need them but not so much that it's a distraction.

    Cons

    It's a tough environment now with government contracting no matter where you are.

    Pros

    This company provided great growth and advancement opportunities.
    All of my positions have been challenging as well as rewarding
    Good benefits
    You have a sense of contribution when the product you provide helps the soldier in the field.

    Cons

    Working in the defense industry is difficult with its cycles, red tape, & requirements and all the frustration that may bring.
    Large corporate culture/hierarchy so things change slowly.
