Pros

There are a lot of older folks at this company, which gives you the impression they are apprecaited and also like it enough to stick around. The management of the company is above average in most departments and have a general interest in improving the company, even if change sometimes comes slowly. They have the most generous educational reimbursement program I've seen.

Cons

The biggest complaint in employee surveys was the lack of defined career development at the company. In certain departments, younger engineers might jump around from task to task without a more permanent attachment to a project or product line. The contract based nature of defense work means that sometimes there will be periods of high hours followed by periods where there is very little to do, which can be a con if you like to keep busy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management can develop career roadmaps for employees, so that employees can be more likely to receive the type of projects and tasks that will clearly develop their skills and confidence.

    Pros

    My Project Manager is one of the best I have ever worked for. The travel staff always goes above and beyond what is required. You want to work for this company.

    Cons

    To pick up a large pay raise you need to leave and then come back to the position. If it stays open.

    Pros

    The work is challenging and ever changing and it allows a sense of accomplishment by staying in close connection with the customer

    Cons

    There is a certain degree of understandable volatility as the defense industry scales back and the demand for out sourced support decreases, yet there is very limited support from the company to assist those caught in this volatility.
