Pros

The workforce is very dedicated and technically strong. Training is highly empasized. They are known for their strength in Program Management. Engineering work is done in a very comprehensive manner.

Cons

Business process systems were antiquated. (Still processed paper purchase reqs.) Management decision making was very slow. Some of the facilities were quite old. IT systems are old and unreliable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As a former employee of the Santa Clara / San Jose site I find it very disappointing to see so many technically brilliant people let go. This loss of human capital was enormous and significantly impacts the company's ability to design combat ground vehicles.

    Pros

    Understanding and supportive management team that strives to recognize the importance of happy employees.

    Cons

    Corporate processes and procedures are not fully aligned with the infrastructure in place at all of the various locations, which causes significant challenges for teams that do not have the tools they need to meet expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A project focused on determining what the employees actually working at the lowest levels need in order to accomplish goals would greatly assist in reducing the time and effort spent to correct problems later.
