    The business has a great deal of interesting work but not a genuine long-term concern for its employees.

    Pros

    There a number of large challenging programs to work on. There are a large number of dedicated and very bright engineers working there who accomplish some pretty amazing things and are a joy to work with.

    Cons

    The programs are very aggressively bid and the expectation is that the employees will work lots of overtime to try and bring in programs with minimal overrun. There is little or no consideration of work/life balance or long-term retention of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Consider valuing and rewarding the employees actually doing the work as much as you do the higher level managers who get the credit and rewards for the accomplished work.

    Pros

    Very competent and intelligent engineers on staff, and everyone is very approachable and down to Earth. Compensation is good, and the job is challenging.

    Cons

    Not much in the way of job security. Lots of contract work available, but getting on full time is not easy.

    Advice to Management

    stop hiring contractors, and hire some people full time.
