Pros

Good infrastructure, good network, the best software development tools, some very smart engineers, currently profitable, part of Boeing

Cons

The market is becoming competitive, bad decisions at the directors level have dug a hole that will take management 5 years to get out of if they take corrective action now (replace all directors) and less than 3 years before the competition drives down profits. In airline industry speak, they will run out of runway before they can takeoff. 20-30% reduction in workforce in the next 3 years.

Advice to Management

Focus on the software development area, it is the future of this company. Use actual software development practices and standards IEEE, ISO, and CMMI. Don't reinvent a process, use an established and effective one and only one for all projects. Discipline knowledge over domain knowledge in the software development lifecycle. Pilots are good at flying planes, not developing software. Pilot/business involvement needs to begin and end at the requirement definition phase then let professional and experienced software engineers do what they are good at doing.

    Pros

    Always interesting work and good people to work with. Most employees are focused on providing the best products to their customers. Development teams and delivery teams continue to make the effort to go the extra mile to get a good product out the door.

    Cons

    Chaos in the management areas where senior management is trying to implement more cohesive practices. They seem to understand the concepts but not how to implement them. Director levels and some Senior Manager levels seem to be in the 'rotating door' syndrome where processes and practices continue to change every time a management change occurs. Needs more stability.

    Advice to Management

    Separate the processes and practices used to manage development projects from the Directors that control the groups using them. Every time a new Director comes in, the development teams are forced to change to the new Director's favorite processes and practices.

    Also, don't allow Directors to manage their teams remotely. We lost a lot of capability because the Director didn't know our needs and culture.
