Pros

Very stable place to work with good benifits and respect for personal time off if needed.

Cons

There is little to no chance of advancement and promotability is not common. The career path is dismal.

    Not the place to work if you're fresh out of college. Great place to retire

    Pros

    Great benefits for someone fresh out of college. I really enjoyed the 9/80 schedule (work 9hrs/day and get every other Friday off). Decent pay.

    Cons

    There is no focus on developing new talent. The majority of employees I worked with were individuals who were looking for an easy 40-45 hours job and wanting a place to retire. But for new graduates, there was no focus on developing them into the next set of leaders. My manager, who GA allowed to work remotely from half way across the country, actually told me he wasn't interested in developing me.

    Advice to Management

    The company is not a bad place to work if you're looking for a comfy cushy job. But don't expect to get the A level graduates if there is no plan to develop them.


  2. I've had an awesome time working on our unmanned plane.

    Pros

    The projects are exciting, and the people there are great to work with.

    Cons

    It's a huge company, and you don't get to know everyone even in your own group.

    Advice to Management

    It's important for the managers to stay positive even while they are applying pressure. It's easy to get demoralized, but a positive attitude motivates the team to keep pushing.
