    Pros

    Interesting work in Defense industry. Some real James Bond-type projects.

    Cons

    5 reduction in forces within the last 18 months is not some place with a future.

    Even though managers say they will provide input for your year-end performance, it is not mandatory ("Just because they said 'yes' doesn't mean you can hold them to it").

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Things were so much better when the late Frank Lanza was running the show. Sadly, when he passed away, the bean counters took over and drove the company right into the ground.

    Pros

    It's a job. It gives you an opportunity to meet people that can help you get a better job. If you like being ignored, it's great.

    Cons

    Personal agendas by middle management are not only permitted, but seem to be endorsed by upper management. If you aren't a part of these agendas, prepare to spend your career at this company at entry level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expect more from your managers than maintaining the status quo. Demand that they possess leadership skills. Realize that you lose talented employees all the time over lack of leadership.
