Pros

Excellent compensation and benefits. Work is interesting. The people I worked with directly were overall pleasant to deal with. There was very little personnel drama or shenanigans. Pace of work and expectations were not overly demanding.

Cons

This was not me but I observed this and felt bad for a few people on other teams. If you fall under a good manager you are golden at this company, If you fall under a bad manager, don't wait for things to get better, leave now. The company doesn't fire anyone in management.

Advice to Management

High turnover under certain managers is a clue they are terrible. Why protect some front line manager? Those people don't have any special skills and they go on to make trouble elsewhere. Eventually it will cost your company in dollars and not just morale.

    Pros

    Campus and facilities, alot rational folks but not common

    Cons

    Growth think, shallow supervisors, unaware of halo/horn effect.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should look into the qualifications of all supervisor/group leads. Harris should investigate value, integrity, and character of group leads. Ensure supervisor are not wolves in sheep clothing. Best action, could be to terminate those playing politics and lack character. One big indicator is exterior health.

  2. Awful if you are not in Florida

    Pros

    Fair salaries, excellent benefits, good SE, some great people.

    Cons

    Hard to get attention and resources if you are not in Melbourne. Very good in system engineering, not so good in Software. Process is a killer; the whole company seems very regimented and inflexible. Will work you to death till to you say STOP.

    Advice to Management

    Be less Florida-centric, commit to sites outside of Melbourne.
