Great then terrible

Engineer (Former Employee) Pittsfield, MA

ProsA good place to work for internships and new grads. The 9/80 work schedule (9 hrs/day, every other Friday off) is really nice.

ConsNot a good place for mid/senior level employees. These are the people that get laid off first when DoD/Govt budgets get cut on a yearly basis. Benefits WERE very good in 2007, but have been cut drastically every year since.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company organization is laiden with problems. The matrix organization where a person doesn't really work for their boss affects promotions and personal growth. A matrix organization can work, if the functional managers keep a close eye on what their people are doing. I have more than 20 years of experience and at one point I was working for a 20-something new grad that had no clue.
I was always impressed with SENIOR management, but middle management has much to be desired, and these are the people that directly impact personal growth.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
