Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Littleton, CO
Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Littleton, CO
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Broad availability of technology that are used on programs. Ability to move around between different programs and even LM Companies.

Cons

The promotion and salary band is not readily apparent to be tied to performance; Sr Management "claim" it is, but general feeling is that it is all subjective at end of day.

Advice to Management

Reevaluate salary banding and promotion criteria. Its too stringent and rubber stamp at this time.

    Current Employee - Systems Engineer Staff in Gaithersburg, MD
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    You are able to put in 40 hours a week and be fairly paid (a little under paid). The companies leadership development programs are a good entry level program.

    Cons

    LM is not a place for rapid career growth. They don't encourage you to take on positions that you don't have much experience in doing. The culture is to concerned about years of experience rather then a persons apptitude to do quality work and demonstrate good work habits. Most managers don't play a active role in professional development. They will let you to continue to do the same thing year after year without encouraging you to learn something new. It is all about who you know and how much your management team wants you to get promoted not about the work you do.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for professional development. Make first line managers play a more significant role in professional and people development.

    Pros

    Interesting work, decent wages and benefits

    Cons

    Hung up on diversity and affirmative action.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. You can't just be a professional manager with no technical ability in a high tech business. I've seen too many times where a non-technical manager can't get their arms around the problems because they rely on others to do it for them. You have to know what is realistic and what is a load of bunk.
