    I have been working at Elbit Systems of America

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, 9-80 work schedule (every other friday off), nice employees, relaxed work environment

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities, lack of technological advancement, difficult to get necessary tools, lack of engineer input into business decisions (ie: budget, schedule), too much focus on all products being COTS, and not enough investment in in-house IP development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with engineers to determine trade-offs between the time it will take to solve a problem without the proper tools, and the cost tools themselves.

    I have been working at Elbit Systems of America

    Pros

    There are opportunities to advance because many of the people at ESA are not that ambitious. If you do good, solid work it is easy to be recognized and stay on projects. Having every other Friday off is excellent.

    Cons

    The lack of dedicated workers with good skills means others have to pick up the slack. If you produce, more will be expected of you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ESA sometimes tries to win contracts is has no business going after. It is ineffectual, and wastes times and money.
