    Pros

    Interesting and unique projects that are very different from other companies. Some of the people that work there are very nice cool people with high ethical morals.

    Cons

    Creativity is crushed by government contract oversight and old technology. Most of the engineering done at this company is trying to get new technology to work with all the old technology that this company insists on using. Engineers are forced to be creative just to get things to work. Real innovation doesn't appear to exist here. The company doesn't appear to really care about the people. Engineering management is powerless against the human resources department that insists on making hell for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more creativity. Don't pretend to do research when you don't. Treat employees as valuable assets, not monkeys.
