    Pros

    Vacation and sick leave time

    Cons

    Senior R&D VP's and directors whimsical ideas and hanger queens like Phantom Ray, Echo Ranger, etc gobble up funding that could be spent pursuing products of real value to the DoD and intelligence community. Many of the existing long term programs are completely hollowed out technically, but no one will find out until the need for a redesign or a design update. After 35+ years (12 at Boeing) managing many very innovative programs for DARPA / DoD, NRO, etc, I was never in a position where so many things depended on stroking the ego of the VP or Director of a division.

    Advice to Management

    Executive management needs to put their huge egos aside and accept that many others have great ideas worth pursuing.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Some good co-workers (some).

    Cons

    Some of the leads and managers are literally "hell" to work with/for. They will "lift their leg" on you, treat you very rudely, and have no interest in your succeeding at your job at all unless it benefits them. Attempts to bring about change/discipline are wasted on deaf ears. Some leads are the only people skilled in some very critical items, and they know it, and management will not do anything at all to change their behavior because they must have them doing that critical skill they do.

    Advice to Management

    In the short run, it may seem like going with the "status quo" is ok. If you truly knew, and cared about the damage these toxic people do to the work and the working relationships, you would not tolerate it one more second. You generally don't have to interface with these people much--the rest of us do. You do a huge disservice to us, the company, and the customers by your lack of recognizing and seriously disciplining unacceptable behavior.
