Pros

Interesting projects and products
Lots of smart people
Room for growth. Promotion cycle can be slow, but if you are primarily seeking new challenges and opportunities, someone is always willing to give you them if you are good.
Innovation is respected and rewarded
If you don't like your job, do it really really well anyway and you can move to a different job. Management wants you to be in a position you enjoy!
Each program has its own culture. The "cash cow" programs are very different than the commercial programs. If you don't like the culture, you can try to get on a program with a culture you do like

Cons

Big focus on hiring young "top talent" without the ability to retain and unwilling to spend the money on retention strategies
A lot of talk about innovation, but the culture is not inherently innovative
Aside from costs, the powers that be require large profit margins on portions of the market that are essentially a commodity, making it even more difficult to compete
After you've been there awhile, your skills may not be perceived as transferrable by other companies (aside from direct competitors)
