Pros

The management support is great. I was given total support and trust to accomplish my mission which allowed me to contribute excellent results. Also as our company evolves upper management keeps us informed on the developments thus reducing anxiety.

Cons

Not enough IR&D work performed to keep us competitive IMHO.

Advice to Management

When developing strategic plan forward would be nice to solicit more input from senior program management level.

    Pros

    The job was a reasonable commute to work.

    Cons

    Management was quite archaic and unethical at times. No internal training available. Many hours of overtime worked with no compensation. Too many ethical issues to list. Drastic cuts to health benefits. Many employees were not treated correctly. Autocratic management in a venomous work environment. Located in a very compromised area of Van Nuys, CA. Used condoms frequently seen on the ground in the parking lot!

    Advice to Management

    Adhere to your Code of Ethics policies. Government issued the stop-work orders for a good reason!

    Pros

    Great people are employed here, at a production and engineering level,hours are nice

    Cons

    In the last year or two we have all suffered through multiple layoffs at every level, massive reduction in benefits, low morale, and little to no helpful guidance from the senior level staff. It used to be a stable job, but now I know everyone is looking for greener pastures.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some great marketing people, who will bring in contracts focusing more on the commercial business, put more money into the employees (i.e. benefits, pay) and focus on keeping the talent you have, instead of laying off and hiring temps who cannot fill their shoes.
