Pros

Good benefits
Management does care about its employees
Quality products that employees can get behind.
Company goes to great lengths to reduce the effects of downsizing and layoffs.

Cons

Business is largely based on government contracts and revenue can shrink fast at the realm of government.

Departments seem to compete with each other for projects relying on political clout to decide who gets the resources.

Some departments are clearly favored over others.

Advice to Management

Overall, I feel management is great. They could do a better job of making upper management appear less like the good old boys network. Upper Managers appear to compete with each other instead of helping everyone do a better job themselves.

    Pros

    -proud workforce
    -clean manufacturing facility, high tech equipment
    -contracts now more aggressive, new initiatives
    -one of the better HR depts I've seen. Benefits are competitive, education reimbursement is great.
    -most managers seem to care about employees' work-life balance

    Cons

    -old culture, resistant to change. Not a good attitude to have when defense contracts start to decline.
    -incompentency in a few of the managers. Increased amount of disgruntled employees if one of the incompetent managers is Belgian, as perception is that Belgian managers are 'untouchable'
    -quality issues in the supply base; better than it was last year, still a big opportunity for improvement
