Pros

Working as a contractor at NASA is a really wonderful opportunity. The work is interesting and they hire some truly excellent engineers.

Cons

L-3 managers tend to be engineers without the best people skills. There is a somewhat obsessive focus on hitting budget targets, regardless of what makes sense for the work at hand.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to get some more people-oriented folks in first-line management.

    Pros

    Diversity in their capabilities through acquisition

    Cons

    Created my position then eliminated it within two years, and only provided two years severance. No accountability. No interest in the individual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase emphasis upon mentoring and accountability. Live up to the Company's written values.
