Pros

A lot of good and smart people to work with. Projects range from boring and old technology to interesting and cutting technology.

Cons

The majority of the managers suck (i.e., lack of common sense, and courtesy for people as individuals.) Look on glass doors, however, and you will see that bad management is a problem in a majority of companies.

Advice to Management

Get the bad managers OUT. Talk to the people being managed to find out what makes them feel like they matter and are valued contributors... that's what makes a project run well. It certainly isn't treating employees like they are replaceable machines. Replace many of the poor current managers with those that care about employees as people AND have common sense AND know how to meet the business objectives. Just meeting the business objectives without attention to the employees and doing things with common sense DOES cause good people to leave and ultimately result in being unable to perform.

    Pros

    The benefits and compensation are above average. I didn't appreciate that until I started looking for another job. I enjoyed working on projects that directly helped the war fighter. Motorola / General Dynamics has a proud heritage of delivering top quality products to the military.

    Cons

    Like all big corporations there are policies, politics and procedures that seem to get in the way of simply doing a great job. This can be especially frustrating when trying to meet or exceed cost and schedule requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Become more agile by pushing decision making to the lowest level possible. Trust your employees.
