Good Resume Fodder

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Herndon, VA

ProsGood first or second position. Great place to get lost in the shuffle.
Worked on some good programs and solid engineers. Great place to work on R&D programs.
Great life/work balance. Management supportive of working towards advanced degrees.

ConsEliminating of retirement program destabilized career engineers.
Constant reorgs and changes have demoralized the workforce. The office no longer has the culture that it did before.
Empire BCBS and Medco benefits are horrible.

Advice to Senior ManagementDrop empire BCBS. Find a better plan even if it is a bit more expensive. You are trying to attract seasoned engineers with low skill benefits.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
