    Pros

    The best health care benefits I have ever had or probably will ever have again. Good overall wage compenstation package.

    Cons

    Very disorganized company structure. Forget everything you have ever learned about trying to reduce waste. The company makes money on wasteful processes and procedures from the government. When there is a bad cash flow month, the company orders more parts that are not needed because they get paid to store the parts which increases cash flow for the month.

    From the section manager level on up the chain, they rule through intimidation and stiffle ones creativity. After several years of banging your head against the wall of change, everyone that continues to work there conforms to the way the company operates or you leave.

    Do not tell them the truth, they like to feel warm and fuzzy so you are better off telling them what they want to hear. If you dare tell the truth, there will be recompressions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why give advice to people that know everything already? I spent 11 years of my life trying to make a difference and did make some but it was a very taxing process that wore me down.
