Good for skill development, but engineers pushed to exhaustion and atmosphere overly focused on competition.

Good compensation and benefits.

Cons

Overloaded with projects with unrealistic deadlines. Manifested in high stress levels, health problems, broken marriages.
Overly schedule- and cost-driven.
Competitive, rather than service-oriented, atmosphere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce turnover by serving and respecting employees as people, rather than as means to an end. Focus on quality and set realistic program schedules.

    Pros

    Fair compensation compared to other companies in the Savannah, GA area - you can actually live very comfortably and not paycheck to paycheck; paid weekly; and great training for new employees, to include more training and education options to enhance your current knowledge and improve your work performance.

    Cons

    Can be a pro and con; HR is highly selective of applicants which can be good in ensuring the company hires high-quality employees; the downfall to this is they prevent the hiring managers from being able to sort through some applicants that may be highly-desirable; at times they can be a little over the top! Let the hiring managers do some of the decision-making! Some people just look good on paper!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice yet, will post an update after my first 3-6 months!
