I have been working at Ball Aerospace

Pros

401k matching and profit sharing.
Multiple benefits packages offered.
One of the few defense contractors offering a pension.
Highly competent and hard-working technical staff.
Family friendly work environment.
Opportunity to work on a wide array of technical projects with highly competent coworkers on your team.

Cons

Management is disroganized and at times disinterested in the personal needs and goals of the workers. Senior management suffers from a major lack of communication and limited vision for future opportunities.

As onsite staff i sometimes get the feeling that I'm the redheaded stepchild of the company since there is such a large population at the regional Ball office. Once you get a job onsite, your potential for promotion seems to get limited.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have some of the best and most talented engineers in the business. Use their insight into new market areas. Many times your onsite personnel have their finger on the pulse of market trends in the areas you do business. Enlist them in focus groups and business development efforts in order to secure contracts.

    Pros

    It is a great and innovative company to work for. You are working with very smart and intelligent people. Everyone is very helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    The aerospace industry is currently hurting due to the bad economy, and because of this Ball is having a hard time finding enough work for their employees. Therefore they aren't hiring much currently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management does a good job informing their employees and keeping people informed about the state of the company. Thanks
