    Pros

    9/80 workweek, 401k match is decent. They shutdown for the winter holidays each year for two weeks. There are an abundance of talented engineers on staff.

    Cons

    Much of the management team at the director level and up is incompetent - out of touch with products, technologies, and modern processes. They re-org and layoff about every 6 months. It's a shell game that allows management to evade accountability indefinitely. There is no real technology roadmap or detailed business pursuit planning. There is little diversity in the workforce. Merit raises are low and incentive bonus plan deceptive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the c-level individuals should be replaced.

    Pros

    Great compensation, good health benefits, and a 9/80 schedule. Lots of teamwork and pleasant working conditions.

    Cons

    Poor management decisions, did not look to the future, kept "all their eggs in one government/military basket". Poor ethics starting with upper management down. Low morale waiting for next ax to fall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the "cons" (see above)
