Management has NO Clue how to cope with the current environment

SW Engineer (Current Employee) Scottsdale, AZ

ProsSolid technical team. If you're in the right place and tied to the right programs, they are well resourced...but increasingly less so.

ConsThe most unimaginative senior management crew you will find in a company this size. Shockingly so"

They have an incredible set of technical skills and assets available to them, but seem oblivious to the need to enter new markets not facing the budgetary constraints caused by being tied almost completely to DoD spending. Instead of leveraging their capabilities to expand into new markets, they're hoping to get a bigger share of a shrinking pie - and doing so while mercilessly and almost randomly jettisoning experienced and capable people.

It's like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to grasp that while you have to control costs, you cannot cut your way to growth, earnings or long-term profitability. Step back and figure out how to prosper in a post-defense-budget growth environment. Foster creativity, not a "keep your head down" mentality.

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