I worked at Gyrocam Systems

Pros

Before being bought out by Lockheed they really took care of just about anything you needed. Good pay, good communication, and overall a young company who were willing to do things different.

Cons

Lots of internal strife from employers who came from other contracts and lots of drama about who was being paid what.

Lots of rumors in a work area (Middle East) where there wasn't time to be worried about silly things like who was getting paid what.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let the separate contracts handle their area of operation. Doesn't jive when someone in another country is trying to dictate how you should handle your area when they've never been and don't know how things work.

Other than that, keep up with the great line of communication that was there when I was with them.

    The chiefs can do no wrong and the indians should be happy to have a job.

    Pros

    Most benefits are similar to other Lockheed Martin sites. Vacation, insurance, 401k, and holidays are better than some smaller companies.

    Cons

    Management is in a "do no wrong" club that sweeps major ethical and legal issues under the rug. HR management is completely insensitive to employee issues. Job promotions are nonexistant unless you've been with the company for 10+ years or fit into a clique.

    Gyrocam has been great but acquisition by Lockheed may turn great to good.

    I have been working at Gyrocam Systems

    Pros

    Been a great place to work. Standout leadership from some in management and high value placed on individuals that contribute.

    Cons

    Affects of recent acquisition by Lockheed Martin are still unknown. The environment definitely seems to be changing, perhaps for the worst. Big defense companies have a hard time understanding small commercial companies and what makes them valuable. Working for Gyrocam is now working for Lockheed and may present a slower more encumbered business model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a distance from Lockheed corporate bureaucracy and ensure that Gyrocam maintains its competitive advantages of customer response and satisfaction.
