Pros

It has a unique personality which in this day and age is interesting. Some people won't like it, but if it fits it works out really well and is better than a large impersonal big firm

Cons

Needs to have better tools internally -

Advice to Management

Leaders - Start walking among the people - get out from your own staff and get input from other levels where there is more reality - remember people that always agree with your opinion doesn't mean it is best for the company - insight from other levels would benefit by providing a more rounded perspective than just the "VP" perspective

    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers; some of the most dedicated non-managers I've ever had the pleasure to work with.

    Compensation was fair. The benefits at one time were quite good, but they have dwindled of late.

    Cons

    Management is so monolithic, and views anyone with talent and even a hint of career interest as potential threat.

    Too many cases of completely unqualified people becoming managers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating commercial projects like the plague; you can make them work with the right people (like the early AIRLINK days).

    This fixation with the DoD could come to haunt you if you're not careful.

    Try selecting management with people skills; a probation period like other aerospace companies is the way to go.
